This time I will write about relaxation and painting. How can this 2 things combine a hobby? And much more how can this 2 combine a hobby for a mother of 2 little monsters? Is this possible?
This year I got one of those Christmas presents that at the time makes you sooooo happy but in the near future you realize you were soooo wrong for being happy about it. My much younger cousin M. got me a colouring book for adults that helps you relax and have time for yourself. Wooooow how happy I was cause I would have time to do both of the things I like and need. Create and relax. Baby cousin I love you by the way even though you are tormenting me with this Happy Book every time I look at it........ gggggrrrrrrr(no comments)
2 months ago I started painting a page. Happy and determined that I would finish it the same day. How more wrong could I be? Not more than 5 min later my little monsters realized that I was sitting and doing something on my own. With colours! And alone! Drinking coffee and relaxing! On my own! Noooo they wanted to paint with me ....
They brought their colouring books and started painting and for a little while I thought that this could be real. That this can actually work... How more wrong could I be again? Not more that 10 min after there were pages everywhere and crayons and pens everywhere and they where fighting for the same colourpen and the same page. So I had to make a decision and fast....we would all go together and prepare lunch. So my happy place vanished.
I have to say that since then I have tried to relax with my colouring book many times but sad to say that every single one ended up a disaster. I can’t understand why someone would come up with the idea of making such colouring books for adults when it’s nearly impossible for an adult to find free time to relax and enjoy it. Really? Really?
After 2 months and many many crazy attempts I am proud to say that I finished... only one page! That is the truth.... and I have to admit that at first it is fun and relaxing but after a while it is just nerve-racking and I feel panic attack because I feel the urge to paint more but not have the time. But I have to confess that one day in the future I will paint it all.....because I am a maniac LOL!!!!!!
Have you ever tried one of these colouring books?
