I have happiness to share!!
I have been suffering with a cycle of either depression or physical illness for the past few months. When my emotions are under control, I either have a migraine or stomach issues (so it seems).. so my house, my laundry, my kids.. nothing seems to get the attention it needs, and I feel like a bad housewife, and an especially bad momma.
For awhile now, I've been pretty good -- stable-- with my meds for anxiety/depression. So I've been dealing with my migraines/other issues. (Blegh). But for the past two days I've been happily enjoying headache free/no bathroom issue days! And I've gotten the house cleaned, the laundry folded (who knew it was enjoyable to do those things, only when you aren't hurting and so uncomfortable??) And played outside with the kids, read books to Katie, swam, all of the things that make us feel like good mommies :)
My other little bit of happy is that we *might* be going on a little beach vacation this summer! It's all still up in the air yet but just the thought is bliss!!!!! I love the beach!!!
Happiness all around!!
