I've worked on 4-story high murals before, which I can pull off in 5-6 days easy. But for the past 3 months I've been working on a series of murals much smaller in scale but far more complex in their “construction”, hence my absence from writing for awhile.
My days have more or less looked like this:
6:30am – Wake up, feed Moony, make coffee (the wife and I will sometimes alternate the “feed Moony” and “make coffee” parts).
7:30am – Breakfast (typically a granola bowl or somesuch). Also, put out birdfeeders (racoons get to them overnight).
8:00am – Shower, shave, look human.
8:30am – Moony's off to daycare (usually handled by the wife, but this coming week will be all on me).
9:00am – Exercise.
9:45am – Cut stencils and/or pickup supplies and/or other preparatory things (also, fill up birdbath).
11:30am – Head over to the Baker Institute at Rice University (where the murals are being painted).
12:00pm – Paint murals.
02:00pm – Break for lunch and coffee.
02:30pm – Continue painting.
04:30pm – Stop painting.
05:00pm – Pickup Moony from daycare.
05:30pm – Prepare dinner + feed Moony
06:15pm – Bathe Moony.
06:30pm – Slip Moony into PJs, bedtime reading + milk.
06:55pm – Tuck Moony in crib.
07:00pm – Kitchen cleanup and bring in birdfeeders.
07:30pm – Play dead in front of TV (A short show, some Youtube, or Cathode TV).
08:00pm – Fall asleep (actually).
If I'm really tired (and I usually am) I sleep right through to 6:30am the next day, but sometimes I'll wake up around 1 or 2am and read for a bit before I doze off again. These days it's DUNE.
Tonight however, I was only able to doze off for half an hour before snapping awake again. I hope that writing this will put me back to bed.
And I'm also hoping to wrap those murals up by next week.
But, I also told myself that last week, so...
