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…

The Beautiful Thing About Today

The beautiful thing about today was that it was full of beautiful things once I got to looking:

A perfectly brined and roasted chicken
A son who gave the sweetest talk in church ("You wanna know a secret?" he whispered.)
A great lesson on the Savior in church (I've spent a lot of today tearing up when I reflect on this)
An afternoon spent watching movies with my husband (Something Wicked This Way Comes, Disney's Nature and Hocus Pocus) and making kusudama balls.

Tomorrow is a holiday from work. I'm getting better at letting myself have less responsibility and just enjoying my time.

Although I know you want me to finish the lowercase letters... :)
