It Comes And Goes

"It comes and goes" is a phrase we use in pretty much every scenario. Because pretty much every thing comes and goes.
My "To do list" has been "coming and going" I'll have days were I add more to the list then I get done. And I'll have days (like today) that I only have one or two things to do.


I don't like sitting around. I've been taught and raised "there is always something to do." There's very little time to sit around and dilly dally. Knowing this in my head and not having enough to do in the house (or any where else) has caused me to be crabby.

I work 10 hours a week. Yes, I realize that's a joke. But no one wants to hire a pregnant lady for a month! I get offered a few extra hours here and there, and those are nice.

So what do you do for the rest of the day?
TV is nice for an hour or two. I can only force myself to walk for an hour max, without a carrot dangled in front of me. People have their lives, I don't expect anyone to drop everything to talk to me or meet me some where. Shopping is dangerous.
I always think to do things with my Dad, but then he goes on his walk (and these are 2-3 hour walks) so the motivation is gone.

Thomas and I usually find something baby related to do. Today we went through the clothes she'll wear in the beginning. We folded the clothes and looked to see if there was anything we were missing. Of course there was nothing.

I'll read for awhile, I have to admit it has been nice to be able to read a book of my choice and not have to worry about deadlines. Right now I'm reading accounts of Titanic survivors. Yes, it's as good as it sounds.

I'll play with Thomas. He's become quit the momma's boy.

And any other odd jobs I can find around the house.

How do you stop your self from slipping into a depression?

What I've decided to break up my to do list. If time permits it I don't have to get everything done in one day. Take 2-3 items a day and spread it through out the day.
I've been able to have at least one social outing a week. This way I get some social contact with other people in this world. If I find I need more there is Dad.

These two little things have kept me a happy lady. And as people like to remind Troy....
