work, work, work

It just so happened that as a freelancer,  I was assigned to more than one project and now they overlapped; I am working on set, props and costumes for a play, which involves a lot of hard work and now is almost finished, I also am working as a team leader and illustrator,  on illustrations for storybooks for youngsters, they involve so much details, thought  and work,  and I have just finished a National Geographic documentary costume design. I also am a part time instructor for Scenography and Costume Design at the Jordan University. Not to mention my duties as a wife and mother of two teenagers.

I take advantage of my week-ends to meet dead tmes... this is a nightmare... I defnitely  need a break !!!!!

Am I trying to be superwoman ? or am I crazy? I don´t know how this happened. I love my work and I am passionate about all forms of art, but getting up in the morning is becomming a drag, and spending so much time working is starting to take its toll on my body and concentration

Am I the only one out there who is doing this ??? Or there are other women who want to prove to the world and to theselves that they are super human beings that can excell at everything they do?? I know some of my artist friends here in Jordan are working like that: life here is becoming hard and the price of living is rising everyday...

I miss the time when I could paint,  and spend time on the internet posting and commenting on other artist´s work... I miss painting for pleasure , and doing things at a slower pace... or getting up in the morning having nothing to do but get bored ... I really miss that!!!!!!!!!
