another week almost gone???

The time is going by so fast...too fast.

I have been dealing with a cold this week - I hate being sick. Now the girls seem to have it. :(
Hopefully we will all be well soon and can enjoy the upcoming weekend!

I am feeling pretty good - empowered actually. I saw my psych this morning for an update on how my meds are working. I definitely feel a difference. I was always worried about not feeling anything on them. But I knew I needed something to help me focus and not overly react to everything. They seem to be doing the trick. Yesterday, I lost my temper a bit about something and Bridget made a remark about my reaction. I could tell she was insinuating that maybe the over the counter meds were affecting my anti-depressents. I honestly thought the same thing, for a minute. Then I came back to my senses and knew that my reaction was valid.
I am so ready to focus on my needs and taking care of myself now. I need to be strong and healthy for my girls.

I also went and looked at a couple of houses today. I loved one in Carrollton - it was so cute and funky. But it was just too small for long term - and the backyard was weird.
The other 3 in Lewisville were not right for us either. But I have just begun the search and will keep looking for the perfect place for us!! I also finally met Traci (my realtor and fellow DAMer). I knew she would be the one to help me this time around - I am glad to have someone I trust!
I did feel a little sad looking at them without Bridget, but I really know this is what I need to do.

Thanks to those of you reading along. At first it felt really weird to want to be so open and raw about these feelings online. But I thought it would be helpful to me and maybe to someone else going through something similar.

I almost forgot: still no candy! and I really don't have the crazy cravings for it like I usually do.


  1. Girl, I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for an update!! Thanks for not making me wait any longer. Us bloging friends like hearing from you :-) Hoping you find a house soon! It may not be the perfect one you have in mind, but maybe it is what He has in mind for you....

  2. Still no candy!! You are my HERO!!!! Keep up the amazing job!!

  3. No sugar is a hard one to keep going on. Great job!

    Good luck with a house!


  4. Lewisville wouldn't work 'cause it's waaaay too far. (Besides, that drive in would SUCK for you!) I'm still think you need to head east... ;)

  5. I've been waiting for an update too! Yay for househunting - I'm sure you'll find the right one! Dina, you are one awesome chick! Thanks for sharing with us. :)
