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.'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.

It's nice that you both get to see them. I've been tired too, and started taking my iron again too, but it does not seem to have changed much yet.
