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…

Big Meetings, Few Winks - January 8, 2020

It's an unfortunate fact that when I have large plans -any plans disrupting my routine - I have trouble sleeping. 

Yesterday I had the dentist and today I had a 5-hour long meeting out of town. I didn't sleep well the last two nights no matter that I went to bed early or took sleeping pills. 

The meeting is done now. My mouth is feeling a touch better (but I bit my tongue while I was numb so OUCH) and I got to listen to four podcasts on the First Vision with Brian AND paint a bit.

These paintings are all half-paid-attention-to-while-doing-other-things and don't look quite like I'd hoped, but growth comes no matter what. 

Now it's time for bed where sleep will come. Hopefully!
