"Limits" on Mail Art

So this morning, I had another appointment with the doctor/chiropractor for my back... It hurt.. It really hurt. Last night I spent on the floor just to see if that would help anything but it made things worse to my thinking. When I woke up this morning, it hurt to get up off the floor. Not even kidding.

I've been having problems with my back for about a year now and they just won't go away. The doctor said I don't have enough muscle or fat in my body to hold all the bones in place so they easily get thrown out of alignment. Basically, the only thing I can do for it is maintain good posture and start building up the muscles in my back.

I've been having a little trouble in the posture department though. When I make mail art, I start to hunch over after a while. I don't even think about it half the time. And I'll spend hours and hours sitting on the floor of my room making mail art. The above envelope, I created last night. I painted that!!! I've been trying out some new techniques and stuff. It's pretty fun.

But today, Mom broke the depressing news to me that she's going to start "limiting" my mail art activities. Which means, I can't do mail art for a little while. What? No mail art? How will I live??? Mail art is my outlet for creativity!! Mail art is like my life!

It's the worst punishment she could possibly give me and I didn't even do anything! I know she just wants me to be healthy and feel better...but but. Art is my baby!

It makes me want to cry.

  1. I'm sorry, Meesh! Why didn't you say something? Man, that sucks! I hate "limits," or, as they're known in my house, "restrictions."
    BTW, this is Buffy, though I'm using my bro's account to comment. Fyi.


Thanks for leaving a comment! They make me smile! ^-^
