Thecoffeebean- I have the "little depressed" thing going as well. I wonder if some of it for me here in Baltimore is Seasonal Affective Disorder. I just thought of that now. I have this light therapy machine that I got a few years ago when we had a really bleak winter. I am going to look for it and see if it helps.
Mama505- I am so sorry about your loss and to have a body reminder can't make that any easier. Congratulations on getting pregnant again and I wish you the best of luck with this pregnancy.
I am sure we will all be complaining about the heat as soon as the summer hits or, for me realistically, sooner. My oven being on makes it so I am most comfortable in 60% weather, which we have not hit yet in Baltimore. We are still in the 30's/40's and occassionally 50s.
I am lucky that we live next to a beautiful college campus, Loyola University, and once the weather is better can go on some nice walks. I want to be able to walk with my son but am worried that he will "drop" while walking and take me down with him. He is six, so he is tall enough for me not to have to side bend to hold his hand, but developmentally very young and only been independent walking for a little while. I guess I could hold his hand less but worry about him getting away from me with a street next to us. It is a campus street so not very busy. Have any of you ever thought of using one of those wrist or backpack "leashes" (I hate that word but don't know what else to call it)? I just don't know how I feel about it. I want him to be independent but also keep him safe. ESP would not care and it would solve the problem of me having to worry about him getting away from me. And he could drop and not take me with him.
Any thoughts on this?
