I just realized it's been a full month since I posted last! I have been trying to post more regularly, but I guess life got away from me this month. So what has been keeping me busy?
First of all, my mole biopsy came back with abnormal cells. So in May I am getting a larger hole cut out of my face so they can remove all the abnormal cells. The good news is that it isn't cancer.
I also hosted a sleep over party for my eight year old - our first. It was exhausting, but so rewarding. Afterwards my daughter told me it was the best birthday party ever, making all that hard work worth it.
In other news, I moved from part time to full time. It's not a lot of extra hours, just about two hours more per day Monday to Friday. So far, though, it's been exhausting. I get up at 6 a.m. to workout, at 8:30 the kids start school and I start work, I get off at 4:30 p.m., pick up the kids, and then we may go to soccer, or run an errand and get home at 6 p.m. Then it's time for dinner, reading with the kids, and bedtime routines. Then it's time for me to clean up, make lunches, etc. Two days a week I head back out the door for Taekwondo in the evening.
Fortunately, my mood has been pretty positive. My medication seems to be doing it's job, and I believe my early morning workouts have really helped me feel good.
Sometimes when things are going good, I dreamed that I've been cured from depression and that I'll never feel depressed again. Boy I wish that were true.
