Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

House Hunting

This is a very non-art/craft blog. My husband, after much cajoling, badgering and force has been house-hunting with me. We don't qualify for a lot so our choices are limited - mostly foreclosures. We have found this one house about three doors down from my sis-in-law's (she watches Kiff for me during the day) that seems really good. The only problem is that it's a short sale. Everything I've read about those say they are miserable and it's best to steer clear of them. Still, we're going to go ahead and put in an offer tonight for the house. Who knows? Maybe it will be all right for us.

I've had a feeling for a while now that it's the right time to look for a house. I'm hoping that the peaceful feeling is a sign that it will all work out. (I mean, work out as in GETTING A HOUSE.)
