I wear my sunglasses at night

Today is a long weekend, and I wrote a list of things that I would like to get done. I woke up early, all excited, and then started to have a panic attack as I didn't want to leave the house, and couldn't decide what to do. Ai ai ai!

But I put a load of washing on (2nd in there now), and texted a friend, then started reading a book. Then yippee, my friend texted back, and we went grocery shopping, then we ended up going round the shops for a while. It was nice and sunny out, and as we were walking home we couldn't deny the most amazing smells coming from the Thai place across the road. One lunch special later and it was home for an afternoon nap.

Parts of NSW have been declared a natural disaster over the last couple of days - we've got insane flooding, winds and rains, and we're in the middle of a drought. (Just another obvious fact that global warming is REAL folks!) However, today was really nice and sunny here in Sydney, and my mood matched it.

Oh, and B is going on a date - so good things do happen to people that deserve it : )

On that note, there's the cute piccy of baby A up above, to leave you with a smile.

The girl cooked!

Yep, the biggest demon of depression is that apathy, that tiredness, that complete disinterest in everything. So it's been takeaway city for me lately - and so the vicious cycle continues. No matter what takeaway you have, it doesn't equal a healthy diet.

So tonight I got it together enough, and cooked. The whole way home I was debating what I could grab for dinner - but I stuck with it. I've got a yummy mushroom and tomato pasta in front of me, and I'm sure it will be good tomorrow (leftovers too, yay).

One step at a time, and the first step now, right now, is good. It's done. I'm happy :)

Next step, 10,000 steps a day. I'm interested to actually moniter my steps and see what I'm doing - so stay tuned!
