is it wrong to drool all day

just thinking about a salad for dinner?

We're having this salad tonight and I can't wait. I might have only salad for dinner.

I also bought our tickets today for the final harry potter. Yay!! I decided after I think the 3rd movie that I was just going to wait and watch all of the movies when the final one was ready to come out. (but read the books as soon as they came out) So, we've been working on a harry potter movie-a-thon. ok, so we've only watched one, but tonight is #2 and tomorrow is #3

And, I just saw the preview for the first half of breaking dawn. Why oh why must they break movies up into 2 parts.

My kid does not smile or say cheese for pictures.

Until now.

This is his cheese smile for the camera. I guess normal family pictures are long gone.


Another update on my meds

I am feeling better. The odd time I'll get a bit of a light headed spells.

Last time I tried go down in my meds I got irritated and cranky. It was not a pretty sight in this house.

I can feel myself getting cranky. Hell I got pissed at my husband this morning and he's not even here!! I just need to remember to sit down and give myself some time to calm down. I need to remind myself that I'm just getting cranky because of my pills.

This is going to be a long week. Ugh

About a year ago.

It's crazy to think that a year ago today I was busy cleaning, sorting, packing, and repairing our house to get put on the market.

Crazy to think back to that day Dave came to talk to me and said that yet another job fell through. Crazy to think that I was the one who said "well, maybe we need to just go to Alberta."

There were so many emotions. Excitement for a new adventure. Doubt of making the right decision. Sadness to leave the only area I've known for my entire life and our family behind.

I'm not going to lie and say it's been all unicorns and rainbows since we've moved here. We have had a few tough times where we almost threw in the towel. But, we've come out the other side stronger, and we will just keep getting stronger.

And that is all the sappy I'm going to get into tonight.

Meds suck.

More specifically being weaned off meds suck. Due to some issues with my meds I'm being switched.

Now, when my dr first started me on the anti depressants I just started to take them. On one hand I've heard through a few different friends that the ones I'm taking (effexor) is the best they've ever had, works really well. On the other hand I've heard through a few other people that it's the worst meds to try and wean off of.

We had to do a rather quick switch and let me tell you, my body is not appreciating it. Yesterday was the first full day of the switch. If I moved too quickly I would get dizzy and a little light headed. Other then that I was good.

Today? Today is a shit show. Walking has proven difficult. I am dizzy, light headed, and nauseous. I can't move my head without having to stop and take a few breaths. I am beyond thankful that dave and his dad are here. There is no way I would be able to care for austin. I've napped more then I would like to today, simply because I don't feel dizzy then.

There is a small part of me that is thinking maybe the dr went about this wrong. I think the transition from one to the other should have taken more time. My dr (I should note a different one then originally prescribed me the pills) has me off the old pills already. A 2 day wean.

Shoot me.

I don't ever want to go through this again. I feel like I am in a hell composed of a non stop spinning carnival ride. You know, the ride that you stand against the wall and it spins and spins and spins and you slowly creep up the wall. (Omg just typing that made me almost throw up!! This sucks)

I can't wait for the follow up appt where I can tell the dr just how much I appreciate this trip.

The best news out of this? My in laws are here for 3 weeks so if this lasts more then the next few days I have some help. Thank goodness!
