On the depression front, I saw a nurse practitioner that is trying out a few things and though I'm not perfectly satisfied, yet, we're on the right track. Baby steps, right.
Situationally, things are looking up, too. I have made it back to the gym for an entire week, now- thank god the kids are back at school! When I work out, it is like a magic pill (although the actual magic pills are good too).
I commit to eating better, showering (when time permits or I stink- I'm still a mom, after all), wearing clothes that don't look like I stepped out of a homeless shelter and simply feel better about myself.
A biggie! I got my husband's feet wet with "blogging". As you know, it's my secret. However, I have found it hard that I couldn't share what is becoming such an integral part of my life with him. Frankly, I think he was feeling it, too.
First things first, I had to define "blogging" to him. He is 'old school' and not tech savvy. Every time I'm on the computer, I know he's thinking Chris Hansen is going to walk through the door and break up my love affair online with an undercover policeman posing as a 15 year old amorous tease!
After my explanation, he was surprisingly
Then, as my confidence built and he was still
Then to Mr. Lady, I thought he would appreciate her love for porn and her keen sense of humor. (FYI- Mr. Lady- my husband is looking forward to a night of just you, him, a chocolate bar and Redtube!)
Even though I didn't count on his arousal, it didn't backfire too much. Long story short, he got it- blogging, that is, not Mr Lady! He saw the entertainment value in it. He saw how I could benefit from a creative outlet such as this! He saw how I have found a support system that are not a bunch of dangerous perverts looking to take advantage of me (well, not all of them.)
I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. It's still my secret and I trust that he will respect it is "my time". I will still say everything I always have, but , at least I won't have to carry the guilt of hiding it.
And last, but not least, I was nominated for the Hot Blogger Calendar- which completely cracks me up! I am not a confident person- so this is just funny to me. But, I'm not going to lie, it would be great fun.
So here's my challenge to you. Vote for me, then go to all of the computers you can find (because I think they only allow one vote per computer- unless you're a hacker - then, by all means!) Then go and vote for Jen The Mom, Happy Hour Sue, Jill Jill Bo Bill, and Insane Mama because I want to go with them and they're all hot, too!!! You can vote for McMommy too, she is also a bloggy friend and she is very hot, but she's also a shoe in, I'm thinking. So, recapping- vote for me and then go find 5 other computers and vote for my friends, got it???!!!
