break from the familliar

Here I am with 6 hours of time on my hands every day. Both kids are back in school. My daughter, for the first time, goes to school all day, every day. I thought I would be a motivated machine accomplishing more than ever before, however old habits die hard and I find myself filling every day with the redundancy of housekeeping. How long will this continue? When will I have had enough? My canvases and brushes call to me everyday, begging me to pick them up, even if it is just for a little while. It will be good when I am finished with this self-inflicted punishment. Maybe I just don’t know where to start. There is safety in the familiar. Maybe I could start with rearranging my studio space, but then that is just housework in disguise, isn’t it?
