Monday's New Start
Monday, October 11, 2010
I'm back on my anti-depressants, which is making it easier for me to take care of things this weekend and today. Saturday started out slow - lots of computer time, eating in front of the TV, nothing too good - but afterward, we got ready to run our errands. We had a stop at the library, a trip to the library book sale, Big Lots, recycling then lunch. When we got home, the boys napped and I was lazy - more computer time. But in the evening, Rich and I put together our dining room table.
Sunday had my husband and older son going to church while Pete and I hung out here. After church, we went to our friends' for a game of board games. I tried to stay away from the bad stuff, like chips. I did have a lot of peanuts and some pizza, though. It was a great day for fun, which is what I mentally needed. It helped me feel a bit more focused for getting things done. When we got home, I got a ton of laundry folded and called my folks. All good things.
Today I've been focusing on the new start. Rather the jumping on the computer first thing, I took a shower, got breakfast for the boys (a bowl of cereal for me) and I and started a decluttering project for Swap-Bot. I got an extremely full bakers rack almost completely empty and everything from it to the rooms where it belongs. I've been up since 6:30 and I didn't get on the computer until 9:30. A good morning, in my mind.
And I'm hoping to keep the motivation going. I'm going to have a sandwich and some fruit for lunch, then go swimming with my boys. So it's a good start for the week. And I will make the rest of the week just as good.
