"Coming Clean" was never an option, was it? Please read, blog update inside!
Made this caption for Charlotte about a week ago as part of my New Year's Resolution, which so far has been a pretty good success. I guess you could call this a "process" caption, since the changes are happening directly within the story, as you are reading it. I don't do them that often, but they can be fun to make, and with this source photo, I thought it was a good fit.
Sorry about no post on Monday. Usually I don't go more than a day between blog posts, but I am dragging ass. I've been sick with an ear infection since Friday and I wasn't able to get treated for until this morning due to the long President's Day weekend. We also got 20 inches of snow dumped upon us AGAIN with another 3-5 supposedly today. The storms just keep coming, one after another, as we'll have snow on Thursday and Saturday. Not only that, but we've had a wind chill of -35 fahrenheit on Sunday! While I'm not a fan of Summer at all, I WOULD like to see a week of above freezing temperatures to even things out and perhaps melt a bit of snow and ice, since most of the snow banks are at least 6-8 feet tall now, which makes driving hazardous. I know 2 people that have died due to ice/snow car accidents in the last 6 weeks, and a friend of my daughters was in a car that was totaled about 2 miles from where the 2nd person died about 3 days prior. For the first time, I can honestly say I hate New England weather, as this has just been so relentlessly bleak. Here's a good example of how people are feeling HERE or HERE.
I might take a few more days off from posting, or however long it takes, as I think this weather is not only affecting my mood negatively, but impacting the captions I'm making and/or trying to make. I'm usually a happy person, even when I'm evil in captions, its more "Dee-vil" than anything malevolent or truly dark. My captions are the movie "Heathers" at the most. I want to say that this has nothing to do with this blog or anything relating to our genre, but seems to be a seasonal depression, something which I can't say I've ever had to deal with .. and I don't like it at all. I have trouble sleeping and don't want to get up in the morning. I worry about the safety of family and friends. I barely leave the apartment.
I wanted to let everyone know what was going on, mostly because I worried so much last night about not posting something, but if I did, it would've been dark and angry. I am going to be fine, and I will power through this. I've gone through much worse.
