I've come to the conclusion that Tuesdays are just not my day.

For the past 3 or 4 months every Tuesday hits me like a ton of bricks. I don't know why. It's like all the things that I worry about all week come to fruition on Tuesday.

Today Chloe's eye bump came back. I've taken her to the vet, and it's nothing serious. She just gets these little puss filled bumps above her eye. When she plays, they get really red and sometime burst open. I make sure to put ointment on it and keep my eye on it, but it just looks awful...

I also realized today that my truck needs new brakes. Fun. Just what I needed. awesome.
That on top of being totally stressed out about this upcoming show at Stumptown.

argh. I try so hard to stay positive, and look on the bright side of things, but somedays it's really really hard. Really, really, hard.

Well, I did manage to get a new painting listed in my Etsy shop! That's a good thing :)
I think one of the things I am going to start doing on Tuesdays, as soon as this show is over, is go in for acupuncture! at least then I can relax and heal a little bit. I think that will make a big difference!

anyway, I think tomorrow is going to be great!

Hi Michele. I've been a lurking fan of your work for some time. Everyone is entitled to a bit of pessimism every once in a while. Good luck with everything.
When is your Stumptown show and which Stumptown? I'll be in Portland at the end of the month and would love to catch one of your shows.

Sorry to hear, I think it's the planets, I have had the worst 4 days. Good thing you have a doggie, pets always help with stress. What's the name of the magazine that you did the cover for? Stay positive! :)

my theory is that if you get one thing, however small accomplished on a bad day it's a huge plus.

i worry about my dogs all the time, are they happy, are they well... i'm so neurotic.

Glad I'm not the only one suffering the blues at times! I love this painting, and am envious you have a doggie companion. :)

The show in Stumptown begins in March :) It will be up the entire month.

Enormous Plumes of Smoke said...

Okay. I will come up in March then also. Thanks, Michele.

Being an artist and trying to run a business are such hard things! There's so many things to think about that I feel totally stressed out some days. I try to remind myself that it's not going to be fun if I get too wrapped up in things. I think your idea of seeing an acupuncturist is a great way to defy Tuesdays -- that's taking control of your life.
