Well, things have improved. I don’t feel as down as I did last time I posted. I suppose it is a cycle. If I can just keep putting one foot in front of the other, things usually get better.
In two weeks, school starts again and my work schedule will go back to normal. I imagine that getting back to a normal routine will be good for all of us. There are things I need to take care of that are much easier to deal with when the kids are in school. I know our daughter, bless her heart, will do much better once she readjusts to a school schedule. Naturally, our son (12) is NOT counting the days – lol, he lives for an unscheduled life. Little does he know, he doesn’t have a whole lot left of that – and I’m going to let him enjoy it as long as possible.
I’m sleeping better and imbibing less alcohol – not that I really drank all that much, but still cutting back has made a noticeable difference. I’m not exercising like I want, but that too should change once school gets back in session. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself. Maybe I will work on that this week. I should, I know.
I went to the library this weekend. I am trying to get back into some of the things I used to enjoy: reading, writing, crocheting. I just stopped doing them a long while back. I’m sure it was depression. And I’ve never really picked any of them back up. I think it would be good for me to restart those activities.
