Time for a Break
Blee doesn't like to nap during the day and lately has slept about an hour between 7am and 7pm. Then she becomes miss cranky pants but goes down hard and sleeps for over seven hours, gets changed and eats then goes down another 2 or 3, then repeat. Taking little cat naps during the day that give me just enough time to shower, eat a bit and do some laundry and dishes. No art. And by the time night rolls around and she is exhausted I am too.
Monday it was bad enough that I crawled into bed and passed out at 8pm. I realized that this was my first day doing zero art in possibly two months as I have always found the time to do at least something. But I thought that because I was going to bed early I would be up early and do some stuff then. And I was up early, around 5am but my hands my poor hands were throbbing.
Well not my hands, more like the thumb and forefinger on my right hand. The rest were merely dry. I think some of the spice from dinner had gotten into the cracks of those fingers and made the problem even worse. Babies mean lots and lots of hand washing, purell using and bottle washing and that has ruined my beautiful hands. Moisterizer has not helped. So I slathered my hands in some Vaseline and went back to bed because not only did they hurt but one cannot do much with their hands covered in Vaseline. Better, but still not good. Picked up these gloves and wore them most of yesterday and through the night. Now much better.
But I am exhausted. Got plenty of sleep last night, did my Happy Light, showered had coffee and no good. All I want to do is crawl into bed and sleep all day but of course I can't. Thankfully it is not a depressive tired just an exhausted tired.
