So far
the week didn’t abide
by my planning.
Monday morning started out
really sad
when Billie,
our beloved guinea pig,
and our eldest’s dearest friend,
passed away in her arms.
And at the same time
our youngest came down
with a flu.
At times like these
all things scheduled
like
building a new website
and giving it a smashing portfolio,
filling up my Etsy shop
and doing two new illustrations
get pushed aside 
for the moment.
