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…

Good News! November 25, 2019

Good news!  The car can be fixed and we can afford it! Whew. So many blessings for which to be thankful....

I got to be at home today- a lucky scheduling change considering I  had no car. Brian will be using my car for now and a coworker who lives only a few streets away is kindly giving me rides. 

I am grateful for so many things today! 

In art news, I found this unfinished drawing in a stack of paper and painted it with a limited palette of turquoises and browns - one of my favorites.  It's the first one my 12yo has liked! We both prefer grids and order during times of uncertainty.
