What’s that you ask? Oh I’ll tell you because I HAVE IT!!!!!!!!
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues, is a mood disorder in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter.
See? I TOTALLY have this! And I asked a professional therapist friend of mine and described my symptoms to her and she said I definitely have it! ( After she stopped laughing at me, thanks Jenny-VERY professional) I’m not cut out for shoveling snow, slipping on ice, or carting my 23lb child through jet black fume laced snow.
Where the hell is SPRING? I can’t take this, I’m a wimp, I’m SO done with winter. I’m the first person to tell anyone to enjoy the ride- but I can’t I’m done. Sunny and I want off of this ride!
There have been some highlights to this dreary winter though.
1. RORY was born! And I have some pictures! Kindly visit Nora’s blog at : http://ourtaylorfamilyblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/rory-james-taylor.html
2. My best friend just sent me some pictures of her ADORABLE 20 week baby bump! There’s another baby coming into our lives and I can’t wait to meet him/her!
3. JCREW has released it’s spring line, at least someone cares about my mental health
4. Sunshine got a pair of Hello Kitty boots form her Guncles, which she now sleeps with (I’m not kidding), The Gift Of Stock from My Aunt Angie (thank you,I’m watching the informative DVD today), AND brand new BOOKS from my Auntie Sheryl!
Thank God for the postman who delivers us toys and books and DVD’s to help entertain my Sunshine girl! We may be stuck- but we’re well stocked on colorful toys and books…and rain shoes that are too big, but doesn’t stop Sunny from LOVING them all the same!
