No Down Time
Being busy does not get you past the issues you must deal with. It just delays them all.
I used to have a cat that loved it when I laid out a pattern on cloth in preparation for sewing. At the time I had no large cutting table so I laid the folding board on the floor and got down on my hands and knees to pin. Riley bided his time. Then from a far corner of the efficiency apartment took a run and leap and slid all my carefully laid out fabric and pattern into a huge rippling heap at the far end of the board. My life is looking like that at the moment. And if I don't deal with it soon it will only get worse.
But what I really want to do is just sit down in a corner of my studio (before I plunge it into chaos again by unloading all the art in the van) and have a cup of tea.
