Beat with the ugly stick

Here is another pattern I made today, this time with leaves.

Looks like this weekend is going to be a moving marathon. Even though my lease doesn’t end until the end of May, yesterday I noticed a “for rent” sign outside of my building. That sign really lit a fire under my bum. I’d rather have everything out of my apartment when the landlord starts walking people through. I guess it will be good to have it done and over with, rather than dragging it out until May. It will also give me back my time. Instead of going over to the apartment every night for months and bringing a small carload at a time, I can resume normal living all in one location again AND I look forward to having my own studio room to work on art (in case I haven’t mentioned it about 3.7 bajillion times already).

Do you ever go through those periods where you feel you have come down with a severe case of the uglies? Man, I am suffering big time from this lately. I get up in the morning after sleeping sound the entire night, get ready and put make-up on and still feel like I look I haven’t slept in days . It might be in portion to still recovering from being sick last week, but I also think it probably has to do with the fact that I haven’t exercised in weeks. WEEKS, People! And I haven’t been eating all that great either. Another reason I look forward to being done with the move is that I will feel guilt free about spending time on myself going to the gym, cooking good meals, etc.
