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…

Whatcha Doing, Cupcake?

We celebrated my sis-in-law's birthday with cupcakes. She likes chocolate, but I didn't have any in my house. Because we're moving soon, I have been trying to use up what I have rather than buying more to move. So I made cherry chip cupcakes and decorated them with the real cherries I had left in my fridge. It was a sacrifice giving them to her because I love cherries. But I guess I love her, too...

And yes, I think they look vaguely anatomical.

Okay, so any friend of Nikki's is a friend of mine, so I hop over and you have cupcakes as your post. Now I know why Nikki loves you so. And I'm quickly becoming a fan myself.
