Surprise! I decided to change my blog name. Don't worry, the URL hasn't changed :) It's been a little over a week since we finished the move to our new place. I wanted to give you an update on my resulting mental status.
I've been so much happier this week. We love the apartment. Spike has calmed down a little with the barking. I haven't cried. I'm not upset about having a smaller kitchen. I enjoy knowing that I don't have room to buy more things. I have more money to do fun things, like buy Groupons for bowling & batting cages, concert tickets, etc. I know that we haven't been here long, but I am really starting to feel happy again. I LOVE IT! I've certainly missed this happy feeling and I can't wait for it to continue as time goes on.
I went to Sprouts last night and got lots of organic fruits and veggies that I can snack on throughout the coming few weeks. Grass fed beef was on sale for super cheap, so my freezer is stocked. I'm going to start cooking again once I finish getting the kitchen organized. I get to start being creative with my food and it sounds so fun!
I've already started making plans for ourselves and with friends - bowling with another couple and a concert with the Hubs in a couple of weeks. I've got two more concerts this summer that I plan to go to as well. I'm looking forward to getting back to a point where I can hang out with friends all the time. I used to be spontaneous, and I'm going back that direction.
We had to put 4 new tires on the car, so we don't have a lot of extra money to spend this month, but that'll change. As I start going through the boxes in the apartment and in storage, I'll be working to get rid of more stuff that I don't really need.
Things are starting to look up and I really needed it. Now to just work towards getting off some of my anti-depressants!
