As some of you may know, I've been recently battling a minor (thank god) case of PPD. So some days are good, some days are bad, and some days are simply awful. It hasn't helped when it keeps storming here in Florida, which seems to only make my depression worse. However, at this current point, rather than trying to turn to drugs (prescribed) as I did in the past, since it's a lot more minor than my bouts with depression before, I'm trying to just do it naturally. I'm trying to take small breaks occasionally from Sophia, getting out of the house, and trying to be productive, as well as doing things like crafting.
Today was a good day. I got up and called my sister to see if she wanted to come help me grocery shop (it's always easier with a little bit of help, especially when your child hates being in the car.) She came over and we met up with two of the moms from our Mommy Market, then headed to Dave's
for some yummy hotdogs for lunch. Man do chili cheese dogs and pepperoni & cheese dogs taste good. Add in a strawberry royale and YUM! :) From there we headed to Walmart and I picked up two visors for my car and a new window cling to try to block out some more light/heat, since the other brand I tried didn't work. So far, the visors seem to help. :) Then off to Aldi's we went. I picked up two shoes organizers for $4?! for my closet, and got a little more than 1/2 of my grocery shopping done. Also found out that they'll be hiring soon, so I'm going to give it a go and pray that I get a call back. If I'm lucky, hopefully they'll have a part-time position available. It'd sure be nice to be able to help out a little around here, save from money, and it's nice and close by. Then we came home so Sophia could nap.
While she napped, I worked on some more nursery wall art and checked up on my facebook.
When she got up, I put her in the Ergo and started to tidy up a little. Moved some stuff to her room, cleaned up the coffee table and condensed my sewing stuff and moved that from the dining nook table to my new sewing table (thanks Marj!) Then David headed to mow at his sister's, so we jumped in the car and headed to Publix to finish the grocery shopping. She fell back asleep in the car so when we got home, I transferred her to her pillow,
put away groceries and started on dinner. I decided on hot ham & swiss :)
Then she woke back up when the timer for dinner went off, so I snapped a few shots as she watched me get the plates ready.
(Today, she started to do this! She waved at Auntie Renee as she was leaving!)
Now that dinner is over, we're just going to relax for a bit, and I may work some more on nursery art. :)
