I have noticed that weekends are the worst for me emotionally. There is a sense of serious boredom. I sit in front of the tv looking for something t0 watch and when that fails I always go back to the same thought--if there were a child here. What do you do with your weekends when you're childless? I mean sure--there's a ton of laundry and our bathroom is a mess. There are several piles of mail scattered around. Nothing fun, but stuff that needs to get done. I know that parenting isn't a cake-walk with tons of fun and sunshine all-day-every-day. And I try not to romanticize it. Really I do. But on weekends I sit and think and think. Think about how if we had a little one what we would be doing. So I'm finding weekends tough. I'm in such a funk. It's a Monday.

Weekends are so tough. Holidays are the toughest for me.

Hang in there. I am thinking about you.

We need to have Shelby do a knitting session one of these times. It passes time like nobody's business.

Sorry you're feeling down. I hope things are better today.

I have those thoughts ALL the time, too. I think about how everything will look different when we have a baby. I think about how I will need to rearrange the furniture and take things off of the table when we have a baby. I think about how preparing dinner and the set up in the kitchen will have to be different when we have a baby. I think about it all the time.
