- I hope something turns up in the job search soon! When the timing is right it is hard to wait patiently! I suck at patience is all things, really.
- If you are looking for fiber, may I suggest cans of black beans? I can tell you, they do the job!
- I so agree with you on celebrating every moment and every "small" victory. I've noticed that when I start looking too far ahead at how I should do X and how I should do Y and blah blah blah, I start getting overwhelmed and it all seems impossible. When I just think about what to have for lunch I have a much easier time!
- I had previously googled bird handler's disease when you mentioned it before. That really is terrible. I'm so sorry your mom has to suffer with this -- a lung transplant is scary stuff.
Regarding my arthritis and painting: I'm painting for both maintenance and for pleasure. In the house I'm doing some door painting and sprucing up.
On the pleasure front, I am getting ready to paint a vintage-look sign as a gift for my husband's birthday. The sign will hang in our sailboat. Our sailboat's name is Knotty Dog. The sign will say "Knotty Dog Lounge" and will feature a Westie wearing a little sailors hat (our Westie is our boat dog) and I'd like the word Lounge to look like it is written in rope. It's all a little experimental and I've never tried to do a vintage-style hand-painted sign before.
