Burnt Oatmeal

Thursday, April 04, 2013

I bet that seems like a yucky blog title, right?

At first I thought it was going to be a cruddy day, what with the rain, and my crappy attempt at overnight crock pot oatmeal. I was was wrong. No fitness so far today. I did eat breakfast, even if it wasn't the planned oatmeal. I had a couple of eggs and a piece of whole wheat toast. But this is what really made the day great from the beginning:

emoticon I got up before the kids ~ This never happens.

emoticon My ol' man is off today.

emoticon Instead of my usual reaction to something not going as planned, which is to have a meltdown, I chuckled and moved on with a new plan.

emoticon I finally got to watch the season finale of Justified.

I know. It all seems small. But these things are huge for me. Ever since I came off of my anti-depressants I have had a hard time finding the silver linings in things. Any anxiety or depression I thought I had before I started taking it, was amplified after I got through the withdrawals and started trying to navigate without them again. It's been nearly a year, and I think I'm finally starting to feel stable again.

Now I'm going to take my stable self a nice, relaxing bath with a candle and some quiet. I may even sing a little.

    Good positives! ALSO.. good to know about the oatmeal. I have not tried it in the crockpot yet. I do mine on the stove. Today was a mix of that with a few walnuts and apple pie yogurt. I recommend it highly! I WISH I could get into Justified.. cause Timothy Olyphant is not too hard to look at.
    Also good to know about the meds. Hubby is on them and had a rough time when he was off. Keep pushing. Enjoy your day!
