    Happy Monday friends! I hope you enjoyed your weekend.

    Weather: rainy!

    Sleep: great

    Mood: I feel more normal than I can remember feeling. I've only felt this way for a few days but the change feels drastic. I've been on lithium for several weeks now but only on the right dose for about 5 days. I hope it's the lithium and not a coincidence but either way I'll take it!

    Plans: Yesterday my little Volvo wagon got rear ended by a dodge Durango. I was sitting at a red light and he just slammed into me. He busted out the rear windshield and smashed in the rear of my car. Luckily, I had no kiddos in the car and went to ER to have the baby monitored and she is fine too. Best part of this, the driver was uninsured. It was a fun day. This morning, our tv stopped working. Needless to say, aside from some running, I'll be being very lazy today! Hope you guys are having better luck in 1st world problems than me this week, lol.
