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…

Prussian Blue and Teenagers- January 17, 2020

I'm working from a hotel tonight so I only brought a few colors with me on my trip.  Is nine "a few"? Prussian Blue is the common color between all the hearts. I put salt on each of them and it's magical how different they look from moment to moment! 

Seeing them in the morning will be a treat.

A coworker has had a terrible cough all week and my lungs feel really messy and I'm afraid I've picked up the same thing. 

Hopefully I can make it through the night without coughing my lungs out. Blech - what a way to start a three-day weekend! 

Oh, this guy turned 13 today. On Facebook,  I posted this picture of Kiff with this caption:  12 years and 364 days ago, I wrapped up my last dd's ay of work before maternity leave. There were 2 whole days before my scheduled c-section (I take after my grandmother who had 2 c-sections in the 30's! She was diagnosed with "rigid pelvis". Yay for genetic legacies!). I couldn't wait to enjoy them! 
Then my water broke at 11pm and I had this guy a few hours later (rigid pelvis!). He's grown a little since then and is still stealing my free time! Good thing I like him so much.
