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…

Sunday Night Art (and the missing tooth)

Kenneth is going to grow up to be a siren. He is LOUD! I spent a lot of my day running away from him when my ears started ringing with the ever-present noise.

For about a half an hour, I was going around the house trying to find all of my painting stuff. Some of it was in Kenzie's room (where it was all *supposed* to be) and I found the rest of it in a box in the garage (I also found that I have several more boxes of old books that "look cool" - what am I going to DO with them? How do I justify their existence?).

Next, to the kitchen to get a cup for water. Then into my room. Kenneth followed me (AGAIN!!!!) and I made him get his crayons if he wanted to be with me (he did it!).

I like the light in there... I painted for about 10 minutes - all I could handle after the energy I spent putting it together. Perhaps more tomorrow...

It's a start! And yes, I can understand the difficulty. Especially with children following you around.

Where did you find his tooth?

His tooth was under the table. I wasn't expecting to find a fang! It was heavy, too. Weird.
