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…

First and Foremost

When I was single, I loved spending time at home. I loved being able to have my stuff just so and to be working on projects that made my home prettier. Now I am married and I have a husband whose taste is, um, different than mine (think ceramic busts of Scottish golfers painted by aunts). I also have kidlets (a couple of them only a few days a month, but OH the mark they leave on the house!) who are with me.

Right now, Kenneth is three years old and he loves being with me. Touching me. All the time. I have to get him to stop leaning on my arm so I can type or use my glue gun or whatever else it is that I'm doing.

When I get frustrated, I remind myself what my doctor said when I brought Kenneth in for his two-month checkup: "Enjoy this time because before you know it, he'll be graduating from high school like my kid is...". The past three years have gone SCHWOOP! I bet it will keep going like that, too, so I'm going to enjoy being a wife and a mom. Even when I can't type very welll;lskdfj;lkdjf;
