Friday, Spring Snow Day

Saturday, April 05, 2014

It was one of those days that everyone was home. I'm still feeling a bit depressed and overwhelmed, but this weather is not helping at all. I'm hoping to get out of this 5 month funk soon. If it keeps up, I'll have to look into my medical insurance to see if it handles mental health. Everyone's allowed a little breakdown, aren't they?

I'm on the third floor. This is what my balcony looked like in the morning.

The park had nearly a full foot of fresh snow again.

I still managed breakfast.

Lunch was reheated leftovers from the day before.

I finished off the box of chocolate, I won't have to worry about that box anymore and the other chocolates in the house are hidden enough I don't think about them and hope they'll stick around until Easter.

I also had another granola bar.

I didn't want to make dinner, so the husband cooked some frozen pizzas.

I was pretty much done eating for the day, but ended up staying up late and because I was starting to feel a bit dizzy after my normal bedtime, I had an orange. It helped.

It ended up being one of those days that I didn't get anything done, but because everyone was home, I had them help me get stuff done, so the laundry is clean and put away. I managed three more castles in my Zelda game and found a new thing to watch on Netflix. A normal day would not have been this lazy, but I suppose I'm authorized to have one every once in a while, a long as it doesn't become a habit. I'm getting in the mood to rearrange furniture, but to do it I need my husband's help because the things I want to shift are too heavy for me alone.

The school didn't cancel for the day right away. I never know the night before and this time they couldn't make up their minds, thinking it would start melting right away, but in the end (and two phone calls later) they decided to cancel after telling us they were just delaying it. It's annoying when we're woken up twice to be told we can sleep in and stay in pajamas.

    I am definitely sick of seeing the snow this year. Hopefully the spring weather comes soon.

    Let's hope this is the end of it! I could barely make it out of my alley on Friday morning to get to work. Once I hit the main roads and highway is was ok but the garage into alley is always tricky after that much snow! Hang in there, Spring has got to come!

    KMBMPH is right , if you haven't had lab tests in a while start by seeing your regular Dr.. Tell them just what you have been telling us, they will kmow if you need tests done or should see a mental health doctor.

    With that much snow on your balcony in April, yes I think feeling depressed is allowed! Before you look into the mental health aspect of your insurance, have you thought about going to the doctor first and getting checked to make sure all of your numbers are normal?
