However, for some strange reason this year, I think I have already developed SAD (Season Affect Disorder). I've never had it before, but I think I feel it coming on. Strong. I am so dreading winter. I hate the cold. I like the snow, but it doesn't really snow much around here. We spend the winter with freezing temperatures and an occasional day where it's warms enough to RAIN but not snow. Cold, wet days are the worst and that's how I would describe our winters. Grey and wet. I have starting saying "Hola" to everyone hoping that will get me trip to Cancun. Tropical Hawaii warmness is still in my mind, but the weather outside is a bitter reminder I am no longer in Hawaii. It sucks.
I would love to have one month of winter - a month of cold, blustery, snowy, icy days. One month. And then I want to get back to the sun and warmth of spring and summer. A few fall days can be squeezed in after summer and before the one month of winter. That is my cure for SAD. I don't think it will happen. I'm not sure what I am going to do to get through this winter. I guess I will hibernate as much as possible.
While you are here, join the discussion to the right in The Blog Frog. I am curious how you all decide your school lunches for your kids - how much $$, do they pack 100%, do they buy 100% etc. etc.
And for a nice little reminder of how the weather should be, EVERYDAY, enjoy this.
