Me say no

Me say nooooooo….this is the time of year when I HAVE to do all kinds of accounting functions for our business which I HATE, did I say HATE.  My body rebels and I feel soooooo tired and sluggish and I do anything, even cleaning and organizing to avoid having to do numbers.  This journal page is a release of that frustration.  Me say no, me say no, me say noooooooo!  In a week or two it will be all done, but for now…

IMG_1586Did I mention that I hate doing numbers…

IMG_1592And I love weirdness and x’s and mark making

    Wonderful pages, the frustration gave you creative energy. I feel for you, I hate it when I have to do stuff like that, too! Valerie

    Hang on a little; I’ll just get my year-end-superhero cape out of the closet and get it cleaned, and I’ll fly right over to give you a hand!
    Hang in there; think of all the awesome frustration that you get to paint out afterwards – like the Noooooo! Love it!

    forget to say.. I hate all kind of work with NUMBERS too.. can’t even remember my own telephone number and hate all this numerous things —

    this is normal – I think it’s because we are more the intuitive beeings and
    numbers are established facts without any souls!

    We’ve been procrastinating getting our taxes done. Uuuughh…. We usually don’t get much if anything back. Our motto is ‘As long as we don’t owe, we did good1’ Love this guy! He really does look shell shocked. Hugs!deb
