I know I haven't done much blogging lately, but you know how it is ~ you get tired of repeating the same old depressive things that you're going through. I don't want to burden my friends here at Dtribe so if I go silent for awhile I'm probably depressed or really busy.
Just got home from Orlando about 3 hours ago, and both my husband and I crashed as soon as we got home. Nobody slept much last night because we had a parents' night out without the kids. We went to an awesome steak house called Texas de Brazil for Mike's (one of our friends) birthday. The food was lucious! Waiters carry around skewers of different types of meat and they carve it onto your place. It's an all-you-can eat dinner, but it's not cheap by any means. I think I probably gained 5 pounds from just yesterday.
Afterwards we went to CityWalk in downtown Universal Studios and had fun just people watching and hanging out. I guess we got back to the hotel around midnight or one, and this little piggy decided to call it a night because my meds make me very tired. I felt bad because everyone wanted me to stay up and have drinks and play Yahtzee (have no idea how to play it), but I couldn't keep my eyes open. So I crawled into bed and conked out, buried myselfunder the comforter and slept. At three in the morning I woke up to Aaron's face right in front of mine and he scared me to death. So I got up and had a few drinks (they were still drinking)and goofed off until almost sunrise when everyone decided to go to bed. I'm not allowed to talk about some of the things that happened but I will say it was hilarious. We've got to do that more often. 😀
This morning we went to Denny's to eat and then hit the outlet mall to do some shopping. I managed to get a beautiful sweater for $12.00 ( I LOVE IT!) and then got a Guess t-shirt for only $10.00. I was proud of my spending this time. I got to shop by myself without my husband watching over my shoulder to make sure I wasn't exorbitantly spending on things. It made me feel really good.
After the mall we decided it was time to drive back home (about 2 hours) and pick up our kids.The rest you know.
It did me so much good to go on this litte trip and not have to be parents for awhile. I think it did Aaron a lot of good too. When you have fairly young kids I think taking a day or two once in awhile to decompress is really good for you, and really good for you and your partner's relationship. And I don't feel nearly as depressed as I have been.
(HUGS) to all, hope you've had a good weekend.
