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…

Can't Wait to Get Back to Work

We're now done moving. The apartment walk-through was last night and poor Brian had to listen to the manager diss every single thing we did - the blinds weren't clean enough, there was a spot of Comet left on the toilet, etc. You'd think we were the dirtiest people alive - I certainly felt unclean after I heard about it. Also, I felt that I'd wasted my time completely bothering to clean anything. And I spent six hours doing it. A friend spent twice as much time as that helping us out. Don't move into my old apartment complex. There are cockroaches. Oh, one good thing - a cockroach ran over the hand of the manager when she put her notes down on the kitchen counter (which, of course, wasn't clean enough in the grout). Ha ha ha.

In other news, I'm working on a commission for a Halloween book and I'm trying something new to make the words stand out.

Can you say fire?

More at eleven...

It's all good from here on out now that moving is behind you! More good news is that my blog post about you and your cool paper art is up and people are loving what you make.

EEEEEEEeeeeeeep! I'm moving soon too. That means that MY apartment walk-through is coming up, and my landlady is such a __________!!!! (Just pick any expletive, and it'll fit). Congrats on the house!

P.S. You've won a "[Your] Blob [is like a unicorn to me] Award"! See my blob for deets.
