Respite

I've been feeling really burnt out at work lately. I don't want to do anything. I don't want to deal with anyone. I don't have the energy to get up from my desk and take care of what needs doing.

I've been meaning to set up a day off. But, yesterday, I couldn't convince myself to get up and get going. So, my day off got bumped up a little.

My kiddo was thrilled, to say the least. He still can't figure out why I have to go to work in the mornings. He just wants to hang out with me. So, after breakfast, we goofed off for a little while, then played play-dough. After play-dough, I decided I wanted to color for a while. I went on a hunt for a drawing pad. The boy decided he didn't really want to color, though he kept coming back to it. We put a show on for him, and he was happy with that, playing in his room.

This is what I ended up with:

You can't really tell at this size, but the center part is trees with the roots sort of randomly woven together. All the pictures I took turned out blurry. But, goodness, it was lovely to create. It's probably one of the easiest mandalas I've ever done. It just flowed, one thing into the next, and I loved it. I wish I'd had all my art supplies, rather than a ball-point pen and some crayons. Even so, I'll have it framed.

It just makes me want to draw more.

After that, it was nap time for Nolan, and reading for me. Then dinner, and all the normal evening-type things.

I feel much better today. Except I still don't want to be here. But at least I'm not annoyed about it.
