I love Saturdays- seriously, is there any more fabulous day? Although yesterday was pretty good too, since the kids and I were out for about 90% of the day. Took a trip to the mall, where I used a gift card from Stride Rite to buy shoes for myself rather than the kids (I cannot bring myself to pay that much for kids' shoes that they outgrow so quickly! And I need good shoes too, right?). There was also a whirlwind trip to H&M to look at clothes and an equally fast trip into Sephora to pick up my birthday present from them. Fast trips all, thanks to my kids who had grown weary of the mall and were not being particularly charming. Later we topped off the day with sushi AND a trip to Target. Seriously, pretty much the best day ever with Sephora and H&M and sushi and shoe shopping and Target all in one day!
Speaking of good days, I know it's too soon for the antidepressants to really be working, but I'm still desperately searching for positive signs. And I think they might be helping a little. I just have to wait and see. So far they're mainly making me feel out-of-it and tired. Calmer too, but not necessarily all there. I had lunch today with my favorite local bloggers and some wonderful out-of-area bloggers, and I felt like I couldn't keep my brain in the conversation the whole time. Hopefully that effect will improve as I adjust. I'm also feeling a loss of appetite, but there's no way that's anything but a positive!
And speaking of depression, my poor husband is starting to look like he's a little more affected by the weather this year than other years. I find him on the computer researching trips to Hawaii and California every time I walk past. Just now I had to kick him off the laptop so that I could play for a while. I'm hopeful that this trip will happen, but I'm not entirely sure that it will. Keeping my fingers crossed- we could all use a change of scenery for a while!
