-Cold coffee that I microwave at least 4 times a day
-Never using the restroom by myself
-Actually, never really having a free minute to myself, except at the end of the day when I collapse onto the couch when everyone’s in bed. I’m soaking it in though. I know these days are fleeting
-Cooking big dinners and packing the leftovers for C’s lunch the next day

-Sitting on the floor for the majority of the day, playing mice or dollhouse with my babies
-Ordering pizza on Friday nights because we’re both just too tired to cook or clean dishes
-Taking vitamins like we never have before because seasonal depression is so real. And the winters are long and hard here
