Reinvert-tage Day 19 - Part 2

Today's Intention...experiment by failure...smart failures are life lessons...

I am safely in Chicago...actually a suburb...in this beautiful Victorian home...perhaps I will take some more pictures of the inside later...with permission of Pam the owner..


Decorative painters have beautiful homes...don't they...


there is a secret about the turret room...I will share later...can you guess?!?!?


In my usual high-maintenance fashion...when the group sponsoring the class said they would take me downtown...I thought they meant downtown LaGrange (where the class is)...DUH...they meant downtown Chicago...so I threw a monkey wrench in all the plans to take me to The Art Institute and to Chinatown...BOO HOO...now I really want to go downtown...

Okay...I should have known...but life has been so busy for me these past few days...I really need to chill out a little before the class tomorrow...regroup from artist in process...and change into expert teacher person...remember when I told you I don't transition well from one thing to another...

So within 1 hour of arriving...I have changed all the best laid plans...the girl who was taking me downtown Chicago is disappointed...the girl I am staying with had to get ready and take me downtown Lagrange...when she wanted to rest and regroup herself today...she has been getting ready for company (moi) and 17 people in her home tomorrow for the class...

so I guess my daughter was right when she called me high-maintenance a few days ago...I disagreed at the time...but upon reflection....hummmmmmmmmmm...

What a pretty home! I'll bet it's something come Christmas time and lights go up!

That is a beautiful home!

I know what you mean, it is hard to make transitions. You definitely need time to regroup and change hats and plans!

xo,

It's charming, is it haunted?

Ugh, I'm terrible with change. Unless I'm the one in control of it. I wonder what that says about my personality? =) I should've warned you that when any of us say "downtown" we mean THE city. I once got a tour of the Art Musuem from an Artist friend of mine who just knew so much of the history behind many of the paintings. If Shopping - go to Armitage (if you get downtown). You'll love even the architecture there. Have a wonderful time. Blessings... Polly

It's a lovely home. And sometimes it's good to be resilient and adapt to changes in plans - don't worry, it will all be fine! xo

Like the house you are staying in, and Chicago is a cool city. I'm with you on transitions.
Perhaps it is turning out exactly the way it supposed to be. Could it be you are meant in a certain place at a certain time? So no I don't think you are high maintenance"!!


Have FUN!
