I was in a real slump this past October. I can think back now of coarse and see my triggers! First of all I booked too many events. It was hard for me to say no and I always talk myself into more than I can take on. MISTAKE! Then I had some rough stuff happen in my family which was emotionally awful. Third and last I got physically sick. So take into account all of that it turned into a nice package of depression. JUST KIDDING. It was awful. Lots of crying, anger, agitation, stomping around, hard to eat, and even tougher to sleep! So I did something wild I bought a puppy on the spur of the moment. A Golden Retriever. Matt named him Murphy. He was the perfect distraction for my depression. While Allie was at school I walked him, taught him tricks, hugged him, talked to him, and loved on him. He is so sweet and cute how could I not get a little happy. AND little by little he started to chip away at my depression and I came back to myself - free of sadness - at least for now. I love our new addition to the family! Maggie
