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…

And... Back to Madness - January 3, 2020

Guess what - I can't make art when I'm mad.

My son has a friend over for the night. I love the kid(s), but when they are together, it's non-stop chatter. I'm not sure why girls get that bad rap because these boys will give anyone a run for their money.

Too much noise makes me anxious. When I get anxious, I get moody. When I'm moody, my poor husband gets the look and sometimes even the snark. It never ends up well.

I had been in the art room, trying to do something - anything - creative. (It was my first day back at work and so I hadn't had time for anything besides work, dinner and little boys). I couldn't concentrate and I knew it was because of the bad feelings (snark = bad).

After I went in and hugged him, all was better and I am back in here, my heart greatly lightened. The boys took down the decibel level and it really helped.They were sad when I decreed 1AM to be Lights Out. Haha.

Here's some art I did once upon a time:
