a dose of sanity

Since the lay off, I have been very strict to maintain a schedule. I get up early take the girls out, and a few times a week head to the gym and run errands. Then in the afternoon, I apply for positions. If I deviate from the routine, I find my self feeling bad, or rather I have more negative thoughts than positive. I get very down and discouraged on myself and my situation.

I did not realize how necessary a schedule is for my sanity. But it really has become a saving grace for me. The weather has helped too, forcing me outside for long walks along the lakeshore and more pleasurable doggy jaunts. The situation is rough and there are days that are rougher than others but, I am trying to stay positive.

Although I still want to get back to work as soon as possible, spending the day working on me is not so bad either.
