"We have normality." ::name that movie::

Last night, close to bed time, it dawned on me. I had not been mean all day. I didn't yell. In fact, I might have actually smiled a little.
I know my face didn't feel permanently stuck in a mad scowl. That's a big improvement. I still don't feel like doing a whole lot. Like getting out. But I wanted to pull my camera out today to photograph an orange peel from one of those Cuties oranges, or whatever they're called. They're tasty, I know that much. So sweet.
Anyways, I thought I'd do a selfie. One of me where I'm not dressed. Or showered. I have left over mascara on my lashes. I'm a mom. I'll probably hop in the shower during nap time for the baby and snack time for the toddler. Maybe. The wife in me wants to look nice for my husband, but I'm not quite there yet, where I'm motivated to look decent.
And I plan on finishing up the joy of LOVE prompts since normalcy is starting to return. I won't be going back and doing past days, I'm going to just pick it up tomorrow, since today's prompt was to photograph ourselves out and about, away from the house, like on a date. Won't be doing that today. I don't feel like it, and baby has a small fever.

I know I can kick PPD's butt. I know it. I feel good today. (The doc said the meds would kick in fast, and boy she was not lying!) I did not scream at Jonyn when he spilled his milk everywhere today. I played with Jonyn this morning. I've held the baby more today. I've not parked it in front of the tv all day, though I did watch Romeo & Juliet (1996). I'm working today. And I'm glad to be doing it. I just wanted to take a little break and snap some shots and blog a bit.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words and encouragement and prayers. Seriously thank you.

Happy day, homefries.
