Yesterday was pretty great. We got up early and went to church. We enjoyed church, then took part in a church business meeting. Then we had lunch with our pastor where we took membership vows. We talked to the kids about their relationship with Christ. They had a hard time articulating things so we have decided to wait a while until we baptize them.
We came home and the kids and I cleaned up the house. Robert did laundry.
Last night, the boys went camping. Karis and I had a girls night. We watched Harry Potter, ate popcorn for dinner, did face masks, and made a homemade no bake cheesecake.
By the time the cheesecake was ready, the boys had decided to come home (apparently Levi was scared). So we all finished the movie and ate the cheesecake as a family. It was close to midnight by the time we went to bed.
All of us slept in today! The kids and Robert slept till 8-9:00, and I slept till 10:00!
I had coffee and chatted with friends.
I normally go to town all day on Mondays but couldn’t today because Robert ended up having to work and the kids are home for spring break.
We had lunch at noon. The kids and I just did a bunch of nothing all afternoon. I took a nap at about 3:30. Did you know that today was National Napping Day?
When I woke up, the boys went outside and Karis and I re-did her room! That was her main birthday present (the comforter and sheets)!
It’s not perfect, but she likes it :-).
I’m ending the day with some anxiety. I have an appointment with my psychiatrist tomorrow to figure out what to do since I can no longer receive patient assistance for my $1000 bipolar med. I’m feeling pretty hopeless about my future with bipolar right now. The only other similar med gave me rapid cycles last time I took it.
Also, I have been struggling badly with depression in general since I stopped taking my birth control. I stopped because my psychiatrist told me that my second bipolar med would work better if I wasn’t taking it, but things have gotten so much worse.
I’m just a mess right now and could use some prayers.
