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…

I Still Have Stars In My Eyes - December 20, 2019

Last night we had an opportunity to attend one of the first showings of the new Star Wars movie. (No spoilers) One of the vendors who work with Brian's company rented an entire theater and gave him 4 tickets. We invited Kiff's best bud and the four of us made an evening of it.

I was 9 years old when the first Star Wars movie came out in 1977. My parents made me and my sisters guess the surprise they had for us that started with S and W. I was BESIDE myself with excitement! 

Forty-two years later I was NOT excited to see this movie. The last two did nothing to get my motor running and I rebuffed Brian's hints that we should go to this one in the theaters (yes, I was THAT disappointed with the other ones) (But I loved Rogue One). The only reason we went opening night was because of the free tickets. I had zero expectations. 

And this is how I looked when the movie ended. My 9 year old self was very satisfied! 

I'm still so sleepy that a couple of small projects are the best I can do. More ornaments and I tried a little scratchwork on them. Merry Christmas.
