I skipped CT last night. I felt tired all day yesterday and after a long day of driving, socializing, and toddler-care, didn’t want to do anything resembling being responsible. So I watched a not-bad movie about food addiction, and then went to bed. I barely had the energy to get under the covers. Serious fatigue. The hormonal madness wasn’t over yet either…had a fight with my husband (94% my fault). At least it was short. Unfortunately I think I inadvertently taught my daughter to curse. It really sucks, losing it like that. I’m trying to get my health in order as much for her as for me. More, actually.
I baked up a couple pounds of cod yesterday and ate it for dinner and also breakfast today. I has about 1/3 as much omega 3 oil as salmon, so I may not be buying it much in the future, but I had it already thawed and ready to go. Anything to boost my cold tolerance. I suspect the problem I had a couple days ago is less about omega 3s and more about hormones, though – specifically, low progesterone. That’s what causes all the mood symptoms associated with PMS, right? I really need to fix this hormone issue. It’s affecting my relationships, and my ability to enjoy my life and my job. That’s how much these few days a month sucks.
I’m also feeling very deprived of alone-time and time for things I think are fun and relaxing. It seems very much like I have too much to do – all work and no play makes Lanie a dull girl. Not sure what to do about that.

Any parents reading this? At what point in a child’s development does a parent get their life back a little?
