I started dropping off the anti-depressants in June. SSRI withdrawl sucks. All the yuck finally went away a few weeks ago, so HOORAY for being done. They did what they were supposed to do, so that's good, but I'd rather not have to use them again. Did I mention in my last real diary (a million years ago) that I went to some therapy sessions? After session #2, the therapist said I didn't need to go any more, I had a good grasp of what I needed to do and where my problems were. Fun!
The Dude turns 6!!!!!! next week. WTF? He starts kindergarten after Labor Day. My baby boy is so big now! He is absolutely thriving in our little borough. He isn't the same boy who moved here a year ago. I'm so proud of how far he's come!
The DK is quite the piece of work. She's 2 going on 13. She is an interesting mix of girly-girl and nerd girl. She still drives me nuts almost every single day, but she's way more amusing than she used to be. I'm sending her to the "school" The Dude went to last year (the 2 y.o. class, not the pre-K) 3 times a week. She needs that level of activity! We joined a play group back in January, so we'll still be hanging with the moms on Tuesdays. Big times for a little girl!
clock has friends! He goes to boxing class every week, and is having a great time with it. He's also seriously upping his fitness level. He got roped into co-coaching The Dude's soccer team (aka swarm-ball) in the fall. He also found another job! The pay isn't everything we had hoped, but it's still more (base salary). The important thing is the stress level will be dropped about 100-fold. He'll be doing the job of 1 person instead of 7.
I have friends, too! I'm not isolated at home, never speaking to other adults than clock and my parents. You can imagine the wonders this has done for my mental health and general outlook on life. WOO!
We talked our landlord into splitting the property up (it's a duplex/twin), and we're going to buy the half we're living in. We really, really like this space. And the location. And the price should be quite reasonable (haven't settled on one yet). Buying without moving again! WOOOOOOO!
That's the quick update. I'm being nagged to go to bed, so I think I will.
