I have always loved rain. Some may call me a borderline pluviophile. I’ve never seen the problem with Seattle or London — that is, until now. It has been raining for-ev-er. I can’t even tell you the last time I saw the sun. I believe it’s been 2 weeks.. or 3.. or 4.. but really.. what is time?
This is someone’s idea of a sick joke. We went through the flood, had a week of sunshine and then it came back with a vengeance after Halloween. Today is the first day the sun has been out since then. I never understood seasonal depression until now. I just wanted to lay on my couch in pajamas under a blanket and do nothing. Which is good for one day.. or a weekend, but for every day.. not good. I am in some serious need of vitamin D.
The sun is actually out today and I would like to find the energy to run but work and life have just exhausted me today and I don’t really feel like it. “But Jen,” you may say “that’s when you need to go the most.” Yeah well — I need more motivation than that if I’m going to pry my butt off my couch for anything tonight other than pizza and beer. Basically, I’m failing at my goals. I just don’t have any fucks to give at this point.
I have all day off tomorrow for Veteran’s Day (thank you all for your service!!) so I will take that opportunity to get my butt outside and raise my endorphins. I just can’t today. Ever have days like that? What do you do to get over them.
Speaking of Beyonce…. Here’s your song for the day…
