Yeah yeah...I slacked off this week and didn't write very much. Shoot me. :) I wish I had some exciting stories to share about what kept me so busy all week but really? Mostly I've been job hunting and struggling with various emotional crap. I seem to go along fine for a while and then BAM I hit a wall and fall apart and it takes a few days to get my feet back under me. It doesn't help that I think I also am a bit (maybe more than a bit?) anemic which is making me very, very tired - and everything feels so huge when I am overtired. I realized that I stopped taking my vitamins a couple months back (it was too hard to remember to take them off schedule of my other meds) and I stopped drinking the green smoothies that consisted mostly of spinach. I rarely eat meat and, honestly, I eat like crap these days. So really? It totally makes sense. Well, that and I have trouble keeping iron in my blood anyway......(long story)
I started taking my vitamins and additional iron tablets yesterday and, today, by the 3rd dose of iron, I started feeling more alert and awake and just better. Maybe this explains all the naps I have been craving and the naps that have snuck up on me unannounced. Let's hope so. I like that explanation more than any other. :)
The kids are with me this weekend and I am really, really hoping for nice weather. It would be nice to get them out and about...maybe go to the duck pond and feed the ducks or to a park to play for a while. At the very least, the backyard would be nice too. Of course, there is the flip side to that; if it's nice, I probably should get out there and pull some weeds and clean up the driveway crevices. Have I mentioned how much is detest yard work? Oh yeah.......really, really detest. Blah.
And....it's Mother's Day Weekend. I'm glad I get my kiddos with me for Mother's Day. Dakota will come over and spend a bit of time with them on Sunday as well....and I'm glad about that. It means a lot to the kids and I know, as their moms, it means a lot to both of us too.
