This last week has been particularly challenging. My last post about my "Meltdown" was a complete understatement. There have been alot of tears. Thankfully I have Wonderful friends and family that are willing to step-in in times of need. I am so grateful for all the love and support around me. Yesterday evening Alex got home and just took the reins. He started doing housework the second he walked in the door. I got to leave and hang out with some old friends from Laramie for a few hours. I came home to a clean house and girls in the bath. Today I was going to go shopping with my kids AND with my Sister-in-Law Christy for a little bit, but my Husband's brother Hart and his Wife Jory offered to watch the girls for as long as I needed. I reluctantly accepted. I just hate "pawning" my kids off on others, but I really needed it, so I accepted. Christy was able to hand her baby over to her Mom for a while and we just shopped and went out to lunch. It was a really nice break. The weather was FABULOUS too! I came home and decided to take advantage of the warm weather and I weeded my garden box and raked up leaves. As I was finishing, a Friend from the Ward brought us a PaPa Murphy's Pizza! Thanks wasn't even good enough. She is also Prego and due Mid May. She has two kids also and must be going through some of the same stuff. I just want to thank everyone for the love and support. I feel so lame that I'm even feeling overwhelmed at all. Anyway, I think the key to the next couple of months is going to be....GETTING OUT and GETTING BUSY. I don't necessarily need to get rid of my girls, but if I can have something to do that gets me away from "house chores" I think I can survive this better. I have started taking Iron Supplements along with a beautiful little laxative to help counter the effects. Hopefully my energy levels will be on the rise too. Again, Thanks everyone!
