Still here....

I really miss blogging.  I still do some of it, if it's not too involved or if it doesn't require too much thought.  But, I do miss my own musings about life & love & just living!  But, my days lately have consisted of staying in my pjs all day, playing with the babies when I need some sunshine in my day, coloring in kids' coloring books because it's very calming for me, eating way too many Nutty Bars, watching way too much TV (unheard of in my personal life), watching movies (which I normally NEVER do without Mark & NEVER during the middle of the day), eating cold cereal for just about every meal, sleeping as much as possible huddled way underneath my covers, and taking baby steps, just small baby steps to get anything done.  

So, just to blog, here are some more specifics, just because.  My pjs consist of comfy pants, an old T-shirt & a big comfy sweatshirt for the late nights or early mornings I just can't sleep. I have 3 pairs of extremely fluffy socks on stand by to keep my feet warm.  

I love to color in Disney coloring books, although I did give in & color with Noah in his Star Wars book. That was interesting. I think I used just about every color of brown imaginable just to get some contrast going on the page.  Oh & Strawberry Shortcake.  She's fun to color too.  I didn't realize how much I horde crayons!  When they were on sale for $0.22 a box at school supply time, I bought a TON & we have just have boxes & boxes. With so many kids using them, you can't go wrong having too many. 

Nutty Bars are my new favorite snack.  I have consumed far too many this past month & really need to get my meds adjusted so I don't gain 50 pounds by the end of the year.

During my TV watching, I have seen more paternity tests on Maury than I care to admit, I love the new show on Fox called Fringe.  I am still totally likin' Desperate Housewives, Pushing Daisies, The Office, Lost, Samantha Who, Ugly Betty, CSI & Supernatural!!  I watched two of my favorite movies, Where the Heart Is & Legends of the Fall, which I never tire of watching.  

My favorite cold cereals, beware, this could be a really long list.... Cocoa Puffs, Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Krispies, Ohs, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Honeycomb, Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Quisp (when & if I can find it!! - it's very vintage), Rice Chex & I could go on & on & on. 

Today my baby steps will consist of getting out of bed, getting dressed (taking a shower if I can muster it), getting the babies dressed, putting a diaper bag together, putting myself together, getting in the car, going to the doctor's office & praying all the way there that he will have some answers & some help for this poor pathetic gal I call myself.

It doesn't sound pathetic, it sounds nice. My days at times seem awefully familiar. Enjoy it,it won't last too long.

I have spent many a day doing the same things. Minus the coloring books. I ought to try that. In college I kept a coloring book out on our coffee table and asked told everyone who came to visit to feel free to color in it and sign their page. It was a lot of fun.

Keep on trooping along! You're going to make it.

I hope the doctor visit went well, and he had some answers for you. I have a cold cereal addiction too. I love Special K with chocolate, most especially. It seems to help when I'm down.

If it is any comfort Maria, just know that you are not the only one. I have spent many days and sometimes even weeks doing this. And most of the time I just tell myself you know what I am doing the best I can and I will take baby steps to be better everyday, and somedays those baby steps are more like baby shuffles, lol. By the way I love cold cereal too, it is one of my comfort foods of choice!
