Keeping busy

Thanks for all of the encouragement and responses to my pity-party post yesterday.  I am trying to keep myself super-busy to avoid feeling depressed.  I have been walking my doggies (trying to get in 2 miles on my pedometer a day) and tutoring after school, cleaning house, etc. 

I will be so glad when we get a baby home.  I know I'll still be busy but at least it will be taking care of the baby.  I guess I am just feeling this maternal instinct, like I should have a child.  I wish there was a switch and I could turn it off for a while until we are chosen.

Thanks for listening!

    Isn't this the truth.

     I missed your post yesterday (I've been in and out like crazy) but I am glad you're feeling better.

  • I also missed your post yesterday but hey, you are completely allowed to have days like that!  The important part is to keep moving forward when you are ready.

  • It sounds like you are doing everything you can.  I'm glad you are trying to keep your head up.  I know what you mean about that instinct; there's a longing inside of me that just won't quit.  Most days, I just push it deep down and try to ignore it.  That ought to be healthy, right? Wink
