I've got it -- SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder -- I'm not getting enough sunlight, vitamin D, good laughs, whatever can fit into that category.

I'm not motivated to work, to interact with people, to get off my rear and get in gear.  Let me tell you, I'm not being very affective -- but the seasons are doing a number on me.

But, sweet Lori came and pondered with me for a bit yesterday.  It helped me to process what was going on in my head.  And last night I played some cards - sorry, Sundee, we cleaned your clock!

And now, I'm listening to the high school's rendition of Les Mis in the hallway. Life's good.  I feel like I can breath again.  There is hope.

This pic is from a little town near me.  MK & I went to a tea room and then wandered the streets.  So quaint.  As I travel home each night, when it's still light out, I can turn my head at just the right time and see this little hamlet of a place over the edge of the bridge.  It makes me smile.

Victory is Mine!

Here's what happens when you actually wear your PJs inside out!!!

We got about 6 inches. I went sledding, built a semi-snowman, threw some snowballs and had the perfunctory grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. That's right, grilled cheese!!! 3 cheeses to be exact! Might not be a big deal to you, but I'm allergic to cheese and yeast. And boy did I like it!

Snow is still on the ground. It's still cold, but I do enjoy seeing the white stuff. Oh, and everyone up here is very excited that it's getting to 70 on Sunday, only to dip back to the 40's on Monday. Please people, give us 80s all week long, then we can start rejoicing!

Creating havoc

It snowed again last night. And there is a valid chance of snow tonight. I'm a bit concerned that these chances are similar to the afternoon summer storms promised in Central Florida. It often smells like rain, but does it happen? Well, it all depends on your immediate access to your one umbrella. I always kept mine in the car. Logical, I know. Except when in the house and it's pouring outside and you need to get a couple of eggs to finish the brownies you already started. Not bitter. Promise.

Well, we want snow. We want those 5-6 inches that are being promised. We want them bad. So, I'm calling on you, sweet readers. I've learned of a means to make it happen. Tonight wear you pjs inside out. It's almost as sure to bring snow as washing your car is to bring those summer storms.

Please help a girl out. Wear your pjs a little differently tonight. Just for me. Oh, and all the other people here in Maryland. We'll love you for it!!
