Here’s what’s happened in my life this week:
- I did a guest post earlier this week on Through Anxiety and Beyond about how much the support from the blogging community has helped me.
- This morning I was looking at Wynne’s photos of the week post, and she had a photo of the US Presidential motorcade. I had to think for a good minute before I could remember who the president was. I do have memory issues due to the depression, but I think that’s probably ECT-related. As far as I can tell, the ECT hasn’t knocked anything fully out of my memory, but it has pushed some stuff a little further back into the mental filing cabinet.
- I’m still not looking at the news at all. I used to regularly watch The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, both of which satirize current events, but I haven’t watched those either since getting home from hospital. While I used to like the comedy aspect, I think for now I’d prefer to go without. Actually, I haven’t been watching Netflix or Youtube or any other kind of videos. No particular reason, although maybe I just don’t want to be exposed to the world.
- I’m tired. Not sleepy tired, not physically tired, just… I don’t know, I just wish things were easier.
This video shows Brownie (the dark-haired one) and Toffee (the lighter brown-haired one) playing, while Casper watches the silly babies. The light is bad because it’s dark outside and I don’t have bright lighting in my bedroom. There’s sound, but you have to turn up the volume really loud to hear it. Just before the 4-second mark, Brownie popcorns. She’s on the left side of the house and partly behind it when she does it. She jumps straight up and then flings her back end and feet high in the air. It takes a fraction of a second, which is why it’s so hard to capture on video.
The video is from Thursday morning, and the babies remained playful all day. Toffee kept trying to climb on top of Casper’s head—she hasn’t done that before, and I’m not sure what that was all about. I checked my journal, and I brought the babies home at the beginning of October last year, so they’re not really babies anymore, but they’re still so much smaller than Casper. Then again, Casper’s wild and luscious hair makes her seem larger than she actually is.
My dear friend Predictably Unpredictable asked me to share some of my colouring, so here it is. My tremor means it looks a bit messy close up, but it looks fine from a bit of a distance. I also have a tendency to combine colours that really don’t go together very well, but these ones are pretty good. I’m not actually being self-critical; I just don’t take myself seriously when it comes to this kind of thing. I’d rather embrace being worse than I actually am instead of being dissatisfied that I’m not better. These pics are from two different colouring books. The one with the black pages is called Midnight Garden.
How has your week been?
