|The Short Night|
Yesterday we went to the bank and set him up with his own accounts. That was pretty huge. I will no longer have to be responsible for his money.
I will continue to keep him on my cell phone account and if he needs any financial help I can help a little. In other words, I am not just throwing him to the wind. I will have his back until he no longer needs my help.
I am looking forward to being out in Arizona for the entire month of January. It will make the winter not seem so relentless. I am going to see an old friend who is coming to visit me there. She retired many years ago to Colorado and we haven't seen each other in a very long time. I am looking forward to that!
Also, my aunt from CA and my cousin are coming out to see me as well. I expect to do some artwork, and continue setting up my studio out there.
It will be really nice to have that time all to myself. When you have a spouse and you are raising children or a grandchild, there isn't much time alone. As an artist I crave it. I have to steal the time to paint in between grocery shopping, meal prep, etc. I am always cooking but I don't always enjoy it. I would much rather be in my studio painting.
