Healing, or Not...















I took these photos last Thursday, and I was feeling so much better. However, I started breaking out on Friday evening, so my original discussion point for this post is irrelevant. Instead, I spent the weekend applying lotions and creams and popping allergy medicine. I've really got cabin fever right now, and I just want to leave my house. Just having the windows open isn't cutting it, but the situation is a lot more complicated than I've gone into detail about over here, so I'll leave it at that. I'm just getting really sad about not being outside enough.

My brother and his girlfriend came to visit though, and I've decided to call the three (unborn niece, remember) JAM. So they'll be referred to as JAM here from now on. I got to feel my niece move for the first time, which was pretty cool. I'm new to the whole pregnancy and baby thing, and I always thought it would feel weird and unsettling to feel a baby moving inside someone's body, but it's not. It's nice to see them though, and I feel so guilty about never going to visit them. Again, it's complicated. I'm feeling a bit down about that too, but I'm feeling a bit down about most things right now. I'll get over it.

I hope this week is good to you.

  1. Ahh I have this weird fear of babies and pregnancy and I find the whole thing soooooo gross! I'm sure one day I'll grow out of it but the thought of feeling a baby move inside a stomach makes me dry heave..! How bizarre is that!?

    I hope you feel better soon, lady. Tea, books and sleep. And do some of your beautiful paintings! They make me so happy to look at so they must make you feel better to paint.

    Sending hugs!

    1. Oh I totally get it. Other babies still freak me out, but because she's my brother's baby, it's not so weird? I've never been excited about a baby before now, but the idea of having my own is still soooo far away. Thanks so much Katie!

  2. I HATE cabin fever. I get it from being in the area and just the same place (basement with no windows) for work all the time. It drives me mad. Right with you over here on popping allergy meds. I don't have eczema (no patches yet, this year), but I always get itchy right around the eyes and it is awful.

    Hope you feel better soon and are able to get out of the house. At least, you seem to be making the most of it and producing these good photographs, so look on the bright side? Also, the close ups of the knits really make me think of how scratchy that might be on irritated skin despite how nice the shots are. Maybe that's odd, but you've conveyed something here ....

    1. That's so understandable, and allergies are basically the worst. I was trying to create a juxtaposition with the sweater, but I was also just trying to cover up my rashes. I took it off after I took the photos. Thanks so much though Alyse, you're right about the bright side.
