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…

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatheads

It's still stormy here in Bako-town. I'm loving it, but it's not as much fun watching rain through the windows at work rather than at home. Still, I'd rather be employed! I hear that we're due for another 20% in cuts for the library. Last year's cuts of 18% lost us 27 full-time staff and 42% hours of library services. I can't imaging what another 20% would do to us. Maybe I will be enjoying rain from home more often...

How do I improve on faults that I can't seem to stop doing? I feel like such a failure when I become aware in the very act of saying things I oughtn't. I seem to not be able to let silence reign.

Shh... (you ARE a librarian, right?)
