Grown Up Days

I had a day today.

Full of grown ups.

And grown up problems.

So at the end of that part of the day-I came home.

I made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Took my markers and paper outside.

With an iced coffee.  Because I’m not a child and I can drink coffee in the afternoon if I want.

And I colored.

Damnit.

No Grown Ups Allowed

Turning in my adult badge.

  1. Adulting can be too much at times, agreed. Love the markers! Color is lovely, and the flowers are perfect. 🙂

  2. Those who give and give have to take care of themselves, Colleen, and you choose wisely — art, writing, a peaceful spot. If caffeine in the afternoon is your most unhealthy response, you’re handling this adult badge stuff well.

    • I don’t think I would make a very good adult. I mean….if the world was depending on me to be “the” adult ….role model. They better keep looking…..

      And thank you 🙂

  3. my mind is stuck in a sleep deprived body and I can’t channel what I’m feeling into words. This was a beautiful way to handle the adult problems. Children teach us a lot, and we must never forget to take time and be one in our minds.

    • April, it must be something eminating (crap I can’t spell the word) from the core of the earth. I haven’t slept for a week. And my brain is frizzy as can be. Perhaps its too much adult crud. 😉

    • 🙂 Thank you Paulette. In all honesty, a chocolate shake would have been MUCH better. But I was too tired to go get the stuff to make one. And buying one would have been to adult like. 😉

  4. I revel in the world of being a child, so I get this completely!! Colleen, your little child (or inner child?) with outreached bouquet was so sweetly drawn.

  5. I cannot do a thing of value with a crayon–lol! But I absolutely love the idea of finding a way to turn in my adult badge when I need to! What an excellent idea. We need that freedom and that space some times.
