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…

Taking Time for NOW

I picked up a book this morning called "It's All Too Much". I've only read a few pages, but it's forcing me to ask myself whether the Things I Have In My Life are taking me toward or away from my life goals.

I ask this because I've been thinking about ALL THOSE BOOKS I have squirreled away in closets and out in the garage. I don't really have time for them because I'm doing my paper beads and teaching those college classes.

But I'm not very brave about getting rid of things. The book asks, "Who's the boss? You or your possessions?"

Ay yi yi!

fly lady says to spend ten minutes once a week running around with a garbage bag and throwing in 30 items. Big, small, doesn't matter. Close the bag and don't look in it and don't let anyone else look in it; throw it away/donate.

I don't think your books are impeding your life, but it does feel invigorating to get rid of junk. We just went through the bottom of one of Gavin's toy trunks. Shhh, don't tell him.

I won't. I'm thinking of doing that with Brian's if I can do my own stuff first... Shh, don't tell!
