Thanks for the supportive posts and emails. I think it's just exhaustion, overwhelm, and the fact that I want to be perfect. Imagine that. You'd think I knew better.
I did end up having horrible leg cramps that found me flying out of bed at least 10 times last night, probably from all of the squatting, crawling and kneeling it takes to paint, without any stretching. And it was sweltering hot. I ended up being able to sleep on the sofa, under the ceiling fan.
This morning I think I need a good, long walk before I begin my workday. I think I gotta hitch in my git-along.
Today will be better. And besides, any day that you get a scarf knitted by Emily is a good day! Thanks Emily! I trust the weather will turn cold enough to wear it? Right?
