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…

In the Pink - January 30, 2020

When I have a big project hanging over my head at work, I fret and fuss and fiddle around while I gear up to starting it. It's a painful way to live, not being able to relax when I can't work on it and not being able to work on it until I finish up other projects. 

I finished up a few of my other chores enough so I could start a collection analysis of one of our library branches.  It closed abruptly last May due to an emergency and all of the books and furniture have been locked in huge containers in the parking lot.  I have no idea what condition the materials are in after all this time.  My job is to figure out what we (theoretically) have, what we have room for in the remodeled building and order $25K's worth of new materials to celebrate its grand reopening in a few months. I need to report on my analysis on Monday.  Today I figured out how much inventory they have (broken down by collection). Tomorrow I will figure out what the borrowers from that branch actually check out (it's a cool report we can pull that shows us what they check out - the problem is that the raw data has to be compiled into the same data chunks the inventory uses)(it's a lot of work).

I made this tonight:

It's so nice to feel like painting!
