Wow, where does the time go!?

It's 2010 already! When did that happen? It went so crazy fast. Well it's the start of not only a new year, but a new decade. I really don't know where it will take me. I used to think I had a clue, but now I know better!

There are a few things I do resolve to do better this year. One is laying out my budget and sticking to it, the other is to finish all of my commissions or send them home refunded. I really hate disappointing people, but the amount of time I have to work on painting has dropped incredibly. And to compound things, now that I am not painting consistently I find it much harder to get back into the swing of things. By the time I get into the swing of it, I run out of time again. It's been very frustrating. Especially since I really want to paint these horses!

So what to do about it?? I think I need to structure my days better, and actually schedule in work time. I have tried in the past, and failed miserably. If anyone has any tips for doing this, I would love to hear them! Otherwise I am just going to try as hard as I can to stick to something of a schedule. So here we go 2010, onward and upward!
