some work and some play

I have this image hanging on the wall next to my desk at work ...

I found out here that it was actually created for Oprah at Home Magazine by Jillian Ditner. I came across it in an illustration magazine of some sort that was floating around the office. I liked it, so I put it up.

The more I look at it though, the more I see what it represents. Not sure if my subconscious picked up on this from the beginning, but this image shows what I consider to be the best of both worlds. I love playing house wife. Even though I work full-time, I like to come home, cook and craft, and do things with Husband. When I'm at work, I'm always thinking about the projects I could be doing at home. That said, when I'm at home, I think about things going on at work, and often dabble a bit in one work project or another, read articles or peruse industry sites.

I'm not a stay-at-home wife and I'm not a workaholic. I'm a little bit of both.

Here are a few more Jillian Ditney lovelies for your Friday ...

  1. Nicely said. I feel like that a lot, too -- a weird cross between a housewife and a workaholic. I just can't seem to turn off my "work brain" when I'm at home, and when I'm at work, I am dreaming about being at home.
