Happy Happy Joy Joy...

Ok, this may sound silly but I'm happy I'm not nuts.  I went in for my doctor appointment today and my thyroid levels are off!!!  Yay!!!  I'm know...kinda weird to be happy they are off...but I've been so sleepy lately, my mind has been a maze of confusion at times and I've gained weight.  So she upped my meds and we shall see how my levels do in three months.  Sheeeshhhh...it's a balancing act.  Hopefully, I'll have energy soon.

Today is turning out to be a great day.  I took the kids to the highlands McDonalds.  They have an outdoor play area. I called the hubs and he joined us on his lunch break.   It was a nice impromptu family outing.  

I plan on reading the book The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less.  This looks like an amazing book.  Eric is interested in reading it as well.  I heard the author speak about his book and it was spot on with how the world is ran and just everyday problems. I will have to agree with his key to happiness and why so many people cannot obtain it.  The jest of the book is that it is basically a psychoanalytical book about why having more options in life is a key for self destruction, depression and the need for more.  It talks about a paralyzing state of choice making and why it happens.  Here is video I saw...









I love a good self discovery book and discussion....so this looks like a great read.

Ok...off to clean I go.
