Cold and Crazy

It is cold here today. No snow like some parts of the country, but still cold!

I am crazy, officially. We went to the Animal Shelter to look for a cat for my brother and I ended up adopting one myself. We now have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 kids. I AM NUTS!! But he was too cute.

Sunny Days

It's been sunny here over the weekend and that helps. I also have a girls weekend planned right before Thanksgiving. My friend from CA is even coming in so that will be fun.

The kids have been keeping me busy too. Princess knows the Pledge of Alligence. I am so proud. I thought I was going to teach it to her then I find out she already knows it. She learned it at Mother's Day Out (MDO). I started saying it and she just started saying it with me. She can even say it by herself. I got it on tape and everything. I think it is so cute when kids say the Pledge. And she is only 2 1/2 and she only goes to MDO one day a week!! Brag, brag, brag....

My son is equally cute. He is 18 months is saying animal noises. And he yells a lot! He has found his voice that is for sure. He mimicks everything his sister does. And also likes to cry to get his way. It has worked so far so we need to break this a bit. :)

I bought some Christmas presents yesterday. I am going to try to get my shopping done before Thanksgiving which I should be able to do. That is helping me get into a better mood. I love Christmas shopping.

I think I have some hormonal issues so I sitll need to see the GYN, FUN!! I need to have my annual checkup anyway. So I will discuss my mood with him.

Hope all had a wonderful weekend!

I am not sure if I am just lazy or if I am slipping back to my depressed ways. It has been tough lately to motivate myself. I have had 2 bouts of depression that I have been treated for 1) after I went off the pill, before my daughter was born and 2) Hours after my son was born, heavy post-partum depression. Both times I was treated with Zoloft and I did not seek outside therapy. I wonder if that is something I should have done, or something I should do now.

I know that I need to get organized. I need to plan my days. I need to get up and take care of myself, shower, fix my hair, get ready for the day just as if I left the house for my job. Prior to quitting my job, I was working a 30 hour work week and getting paid decent money to do it. That was the most wonderful setup. However, we moved away and I decided to stay at home. Initially made the choice to stay at home before we moved. If we still lived in the same area, I think I would talk to my old boss about a part-time work setup. Still not sure that would be the cure to my problems now.

I need to get started with work today. We are going out of town this weekend to visit the MIL. God, grant me the strength!! :) I need to clean and do laundry and play referee between my two toddlers. So I should get off to work.

Meltdown and election results

Last night I had a bit of a meltdown. This happens from time to time. I question if I should be staying at home or working. The problem is I don't know what will make me the most happy. Poor hubby has to listen to me blubber. Really came to no conclusion. Slammer is not happy in his current position either. He wants to get out of the software development industry. So who knows what is in our future! Big changes maybe!

Watching election results with my husband. I really hope this thing is over tonight one way or the other. At the latest by tomorrow. Please no lawsuits!!
