But doing better around the house…I suppose something had to give. Well, it has been a while since I posted, but my husband is doing better on a new medication and is feeling more energized and less lethargic. As a side effect, I have been feeling more energized. I have to say that it is very, very difficult for one part of a couple to maintain motivation and energy when the other half is really depressed for a long period of time. To see him coming out of this or at least making progress is SUCH a relief.
As a result, we have been accomplishing a lot around the house. I admit there is still a lot left to do, but at least we are getting to the point that we can check things off of our to-do list. It is a wonderful feeling.
Tonight though – we took the night off. We took our son to dinner while my mother took our daughter to an event at her school. It was really nice to be able to have a nice dinner and focus our attention on our son. Sometimes he gets the short end of the stick – since his sister requires so much attention. Now – both kids are having a sleep-over at Grandma’s and we are relaxing and enjoying peace and quiet.
Yay for weekends!
