Today I have a girls night out with my playdate moms, a group of 4 women that I have been getting together with since Will was born. We do far fewer actual playdates now that the kids are in school, but we've transitioned the get togethers into GNO. It will be nice to be social.

Here's something strange - I've been weighing myself nearly every day for a few months now, and I'm always at my lowest on my official weigh in day. I wonder if it due the day that I use as the official weigh in (Saturday), which is after the work week, which is always when I am most consistent.

It was hard to come up with a lot of constructive things to do to turn my mental ship around yesterday. Why? Oh, because I'm getting the silent treatment from my husband. How mature is that?! I asked him if he was upset with me. He said, "No. I'm indifferent." Wow. I asked why. He said, "Well, you shut me out yesterday." I was honestly dumbfounded and couldn't think of a thing to say....

With all that people suffer in our world, it seems like my tribulations should feel miniscule to me, but of course the don't.

I realized yesterday that I've been in a funk since before Christmas. I don't think there is any single cause, but several that together have got me holding at just below water. I don't want to NOT appreciate my life or my husband or my children or the fact that I have gainful employment, but that's what's happening. I want to be more mindful of my blessings, but its...
