It must be the


sunshine!!

That’s got to be it! There is no other reason why I could feel so dang good two days in the row!

Although I know I don’t have SAD — at least not a severe case of it, I do recognize and identify with some of the symptoms:

Symptoms of SAD may consist of difficulty waking up in the morning, morning sickness, tendency to oversleep and over eat, especially a craving for carbohydrates, which leads to weight gain. Other symptoms include a lack of energy, difficulty concentrating on or completing tasks, and withdrawal from friends, family, and social activities and decreased sex drive. Hello! [JK!] All of this leads to depression, pessimisticĀ feelings of hopelessness, and lack of pleasure which characterize a person suffering from this disorder.

All of this also leads to not wanting to post anything for about four months. I could also list [from personal experience] not wanting to clean, do laundry or dishes. I don’t want to leave home after coming home from work. I don’t want to talk on the phone to anyone except my kids and I don’t want to look in the mirror.

But, I feel awesome today!

So, there, Winter!

It’s only 4:00[and things could change . . .] but I’ve had a dang healthy day so far! Stopped at the gym on the way home from work and went for 30 minutes on the tread. Now I’m heading out to go visiting teaching. Love the blue sky, love the lack of wind, love the warmer temps and love the SUN!

OK, so maybe I do have SAD.

But, today, I have HAPPY!
