Makeovers are superduper fun. To see Chris Gardner's office's before photo - scroll way down to the bottom. What a great job Chris did! I'm particularly enamored with the macro shots of the office and craft accessories!
This is the makeover portion of the day. Below will be the life makeunder section.
There. I'll sandwich it in between two fun photos and use loads of exclamation points now!!!!
It's been quite a week. I have been on an anti-depressant for two years - starting on it after a few months of anxiety and a known family history of depression and anxiety. It is an expensive drug, and I have been fortunate to have gotten samples from my doctors office every few weeks for two years except this week.
I had this nudge from God when the office continually didn't have samples for me despite my daily calls - that maybe I should go off of it (Lexapro). I decided to and then googled "Lexapro withdrawal" and read of some awful, awful side effects that happen when people go cold turkey. (Which makes me hesitant now to put that in my body- it's some strong stuff!) I'm chancing it and am on Day Three and have had no ill side effects from the withdrawal....yet. I've kept my meals free of sugar and filled with protein and vegetables and some smoothies and gotten enough sleep.
Have to admit that Days Four and Five may be the most difficult - and I'm happy they fall on a weekend.
WHEW! There, we made it. Are you okay? I'm okay. I'm smiling. I'm not crying. Am feeling cheerfully hopeful.
[This is my current experience. I know that medicines are needed -my friends and relatives are on them so I know. I'm just hoping I don't need to be on this anymore. ]
If you're thinking, "What's so 'life makeunder' about that story?!", I thought of makeunder as a way to portray the drug leaving my life and leaving me behind with a better life! Perhaps decluttering my pantry closet would help as well.
It has been fun to look for ways to nourish my body as it goes through this "WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?" stage. So this weekend will include seeing the new romantic comedy that Adam Sandler is in, playing cards with some former students of mine, and going to a pizza 'n bowling night to celebrate the birthday of two friends!
What are you doing this weekend?
Look! Below these next photos! It's more fun questions for you!

EDITED: Indulged in two movies tonight: "The Dilemma" and "Just Go With It". Actually began liking Vince Vaughn in The Dilemma...felt drawn to his character somehow... and then laughed a lot while watching Just Go With It. I liked Jennifer Aniston's acting and her character, the kids were adorable, and Adam Sandler was his usual self. Have to say I liked the Adam Sandler movie the best. Now.... time to sleep in then work out in the pool!
