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…

Update on Goals

Okay, now it's the 16th. I have been doing relatively well with most of my goals. I modified the soda goal to be only for home - not for when I'm out to eat. For heavens sake! There is NO OTHER CHOICE. Perhaps this is an opportunity for creating a grassroots movement to get diet, caffeine-free soda into fast food establishments. Somehow it doesn't seem important though. Duh.

About the chocolate, it's been good until the past couple of days. I can't stop thinking about chocolate. Hormonal? Maybe it's just late withdrawals...

And my book: am still plugging away at it. I finished a folded book with the title of my tutorial on it. The picture above is a sneak peek... I'm not as natural at writing as I wish I were. Brian has been helping me a lot because he writes like a champ...

I just found your work on Etsy, and I just thought I'd tell you that it's amazing and innovative. ;> Totally following so I can learn more about this.

I am so looking forward to your book. Good luck with reaching all your goals (even though I couldn't imagine giving up my Diet Pepsi!)
