Seems like this year has just had me down. Haven’t been doing much reborning. Or much of anything. I’ve got plenty of kits, plenty of time but just no energy. So down now because I am going to have to strip off some of the paint that faded on Codie. This after having to strip a kit a few months ago that I’ve since repainted. I really liked the paints and think it is the vinyl since I’ve used one color on other dolls with no fading. It’s just problems with paints, problems with my knee and back, having to put my cat to sleep last night. I’m already on anti-depressants but right now I just feel like I’m ready to just go hibernate somewhere.
I’ve had a doll for a lady near here finished except for assembling for two weeks. Boxes from BB unopened. A baby needing hair (the one that got repainted), another just needs a layer of matte and hair and eyebrows to be done. Codie needs help. And I just keep playing stupid computer games, then kicking myself for not reborning since I know I would have accomplished something. I can’t do housework or yardwork but I can paint lying down! Just feeling like I’m terrible at this with a few failures lately. And scared I’ll mess up a doll beyond help. About to the point of mailing one of you a baby to critique (besides my anonymous friend that I send babies to) just to get an opinion. And ready to get rid of a few that weren’t perfect in hopes that not having them reminding me of the mistakes will let me remember the successes.
I have a dr’s appt tomorrow, therapy in the pool on Thursday so I know this week will disappear just like today did. I need a slave driver to get me moving again!
