The dimple is becoming more prominent if I do my stupid smile. Also. This is the best sweater because I could fit a small family of five inside of it comfortably and it deceives the eye into thinking I am like three times my actual size. One day I will test it’s true capacity with kittens. I feel like kittens is the best way to measure clothes.

so i actually ate toast last night, and while my stomach is reacting in a not so pleasing way today, i feel alert and mostly comfortable, so this is progress! yay! on the meeeeend

in my dream there were boatloads of puppies and i need that dream to be reality stat

isaacsfables said: first, GO TO A DOCTOR. second, it sounds like a stomach flu but also really what do i know GO TO A DOCTOR.

I promise that if it doesn’t let up I will go next week, but I’m currently uninsured and unemployed, so the doctor is kind of life-or-death circumstance. Or well, not that dramatic, but you get it. 

I feel a bit better today anyway. My worst sick days are always the last days before I start feeling better. My stomach is crampy but I managed to eat a whole sleeve of saltines yesterday and i kept them in, so I’m thinking it’s the storm calming down. 

i have some kind of bug or illness that i cannot pinpoint and no i will not doctor

i have compiled a list of pros and cons of this:::

cons:

-my stomach is on fire and lava is streaming from my body at an alarming rate
- i am freezing, even though it is like 90 degrees (i’m in texas)
- mentally, i’m not all here. i forget how to speak and use proper word movements
- i am so sleepy
- all body parts hurt. hair hurts. eyes hurt. skin hurt. all.
- there is no exercise (unless you count darting for the bathroom)
- the animals think i am dying, so they are using this opportunity to use me as pillow/licking thing/scratch post/bed
- appetite is missing and with it went my sense of taste (i ate some saltines and it tasted like i was really eating blood)

and now for the pros:

- i am pretty sure i have nearly reached nirvana thanks to food deprivation
- i get to snuggle blankets and do nothing but binge-watch netflix and property brothers re-runs
- i have lost about ten pounds in four days 
- i am clean on the inside
 the animals think i am dying, so they are using this opportunity to use me as pillow/licking thing/scratch post/bed
- there is no exercise
- i finally got my child sim unstuck from the winter photobooth and sent off to boarding school (she’d been in there for weeks)
- i can lay in bed all day without judging myself because really, i am doing a service to my health by resting

i live in texas and it is warm but i am so cold my bones ache and today i missed the birth of my third nephew and i feel like an awful sister.

I am eternally upset they changed the packaging for the 200ml tubes. The original was so much better. I still have tubes from like 8 years ago that are their perfect buttery consistency. Plastic is stupid.

sometimes my creative self-esteem gets so low that i have to sit and remind myself that i am painting to hone my skill and it is for me and me alone and it is there to help me battle my demons and it is the only thing i have right now that is waking me up in the morning and tucking me safely between the sheets at night.

Slow progress looks slower to the untrained eye.

Also. Where is the real life undo button? I need it.

Slap me next time I decide that painting a bird is the best idea ever.
