    a nap poolside sounds like it is in order!

    Thrilled the website is something you can use. She wrote a cute note in the cookbook, seems like really nice people.

    well..today..

    Lily had a counseling session but 1/3 of that time, I used.. yeah..kind of lost it. Lack of sleep, stress, and on top of that, I do not think this is allergies, I think I have a cold.. and feel like doo doo.

    However, being up most of the night I was doing research on finances and trying to get more bang from my buck. In other words, where can I shave and save some money. The car payment was a huge bite.. along with the gas it takes to fill it. So I began researching.. called my loan officer first thing, told him the issue and he set the wheels in motion to get me a super low rate and help me find a car I could trade for and have a more reasonable payment. He is awesome. So.. thats what I did.. yup.. bought a car and traded my 08 town and country, low miles 20mpg highway in for a 07 nissan altima (its pretty and kinda sporty actually), low miles, 35 mpg highway. I will have much better gas milage and a lower payment. With the payment and the gas savings I am looking at @ $280/month savings on average. Not too shabby.. I still need to be frugal though.

    I am exhausted.. I forgot how LONG it takes to buy a car...

    Wow, good for you. That was a smart move. I need to do the same. My husband isn't working full time right now and my income barely cuts it for a family of 5.

    PS, cute car

    thank you. It goes back next week for some touch ups. Getting used to less space as well. I used to be able to haul about anything in the van. LOL Oh well.. I will use the farm truck if I must haul.

    so today: woke still feeling puny, but I slept better. I woke 2 times in the night.. not just woke and went back to sleep.. woke and was up. Less than 5 min but its still annoying. The counselor yesterday suggested I talk to my doctor about an antidepressant to help deal with anxiety and stress. The melt down I had showed me where my daughter gets her anxiety. I know that antidepressants help people but I do not want to have to take one. I am so used to be able to just "handle it". Why can I "not" all of the sudden?

    I have not eaten yet.. not really hungry. I made a birthday card for the kid of a friend instead. Pool time is in order today.

    I understand your feelings on the anti depressant thing. I'm about a week in on Prozac and still feel weird about it. No big miraculous changes either, but of course I am in the throes of TOM.

    I know it seems harsh (but please don't take it that way), but I can't help but grin a little that you ended up getting counseled at your daughter's counseling session.

    I will tell you the same thing I told Paula. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Depression can be a chemical imbalance. No amount of counseling or PMA is gonna fix that. I did Prozac for almost a year. At the same time (and this may actually be what you really need) I also did an antidepressant (I can never remember the name of it), but I took it to teach my body how to get into a deep sleep. For what ever reason, I was not getting enough and they decided that was most likely the reason for the anxiety and depression issues. I think I ended up with taking a on tenth dose right at bed time, I remember it was supposed to be 600mg (or whatever the unit was) as the lowest dose, and I took 60. So maybe if you take care of the sleep issues the others will fall into place.
