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…

Feeling Blue - November 29, 2019

After dinner yesterday I came home and noticed a soreness in my mouth. When I looked in the mirror I could see that I had an infection in my gums. It freaked me out and I got in the car to see if Urgent Care was open. It was not, but I was able to make an appointment for 8am this morning. I practically told the doctor what to do - write me a prescription for antibiotics! I've got an abscessed tooth! My dentist was wrong when he told me there was nothing wrong when I reported soreness a few weeks ago! My doctor was wrong, too, but that's not her fault when it was a dental thing.

Knowing I had to get up early made it hard to sleep and I started yawning at 630pm tonight.

Here's a picture of a painting I did earlier this year, but just detailed recently. It's gonna have to suffice since I've got nothing in me tonight.

Oh - we went to Best Buy to "look at TVs". And came home with a TV that was bigger than me and cheaper than the old one we're replacing. We christened it by watching episode 4 of The Mandalorian. I did not care for this episode - probably because it was so high-def that it was weird. 

So we put on Nightmare Before Christmas - much better.
