Well, it's official. I am going off the Depo. And why the hell is she writing a blog about this, you ask? BECAUSE. This birth control is AWFUL. The migraines and depression it has caused me in the last few months has been horrible. Another friend of mine had the same side effects, so it's not just me. I am so happy that I finally tied all this together and realized that I am NOT crazy and it is this stuff warping my mind.
So, as I say good-bye to birth control for a while, let's all have a moment of silence...and pray to the fertility Gods to leave me ALONE!

What's Important?

It was 6:30 pm and I had a lot left to do. I really needed to clean up dinner and do the dishes. There were baths to be given and clothes to be laid out for church tomorrow. There were reports to be done for work and a kitchen floor that needed to be swept (again!). There was laundry to put away and a lesson to be planned for church. There was a bathroom that need to be cleaned and animals that needed to be fed.
So, I chose the most important thing to do first.
I laid on the floor and played with my kids! It's surprising how an hour of wrestling and tickling and giggling accomplished more than doing the dishes would have.
