Summer: Day 18 +19

I should have seen the signs on Tuesday when I just felt unmotivated to go and do something with the kids by myself. On Wednesday I felt even worse, and was a roller coaster of emotions. That darn depression stuff can sneak up on you when you don't see it comin'. I am glad that I recognized the problem before Paul had to tell me.
I tried to snap out of it, but I knew it would be another rough day. We went to West Jordan park, which the kids loved. They have a beautiful library right across from the park that we went and visited when we got too hot outside. When we got home I thought I was going to die...I'm not dramatic at all. Giggles.
I had a GNO planned with some of my friends, and thought it was the perfect medicine to cure my blues. It did help to talk and get multiple refills on my Coke, while eating pie.

I knew today would be much better, because when you hit bottom...you only can improve from there, right? 

I gave the kids 30 minutes to clean as much as they possibly could, and they were pretty successful in speed cleaning. We got our swimsuits on and headed to the Herriman Reservoir this morning. 
I love all the improvements they made from previous years. No steep rock walkway to try to get down. They now have paved sidewalks, covered picnic tables, a huge playground, a snack shack {that isn't quite 100% yet}, bathrooms, and grass!! It made me want to come back more often.
Aaand, I am off to veg on the couch for the rest of the night.

I want to go to the "beach" again soon. I want to see the fun changes.
