Ok..So, I think I stumbled across what's causing my case of the BLUES...

I recently had to start taking this special anti-inflammatory medicine for my tail bone. It has a lot of possible side effects, including mood swings and depression. Duh. This funk really started last week, when I started the medicine.

Man, I'm glad I figured that out. Unfortunately, I have to keep taking the medicine. Hopefully, this is something I can adjust to, because I really need to keep taking this medicine for a few more weeks.

On a lighter note...HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!! Wear your green proudly!

My ode to the Irish today: I'm making Split-pea soup for lunch. :)

Bummed out

I've been fighting this feeling for a while. It comes and goes, but over the last few days, it just hasn't gone anywhere. When I start feeling drab, I've been making myself move, either by running errands, walking outside, exercising, etc. It helps, but eventually, the feeling returns.

In a way, I think it's because I feel isolated right now. My daughter is back in public school, and I'm not doing things with my old homeschool group anymore. Luckily, my Sunday school class is having a ladies night out Thursday, which I desperately need!

Anyway...Not sure what else to put here for today. Just feeling really blahhhh as of late.

Here's to sunshiny days soon!

For my John

holding hands shadow

Thank you for loving me.

Thank you for agreeing to do (and then doing them with a smile) the things you know that will bring joy to my life (even if the thought of doing them alone would make you cringe).

Thank you for making it a goal in your life to bring me pleasure.

Thank you for loving me in ways that cannot be expressed by words.

Thank you for forgiving me when I concentrate too much on what the world says romance is, and not opening up my eyes to all of the romantic things you do for me on a daily basis (hint, chocolate and flowers aren't really romantic if you think about it!).

Thank you for being everything I need in a husband, even when I think I know better.

I love you :)
