On Sunday after church, we came home and threw open some of the windows. It was a gorgeous day, with temperatures in the upper 60s, and the air put me in a good mood. I packed my suitcase to head to Michigan to see Arwen and my gorgeous newborn godson, then tried to take a Sunday afternoon nap with David. But the yummy outside air wouldn't let me rest. I got up and went into the office to surf around on the computer, and I just inhaled. Ahhhh. I forget, when I can't go outside or open the windows, how much I love it when I can.
Michigan wasn't too cold, but I arrived at Arwen's house on Sunday evening and literally didn't set foot back outside until after 5:00 yesterday, when I left to go back to the airport. And wouldn't you know-- I was useless again. Tired, lethargic, and not nearly as helpful as I'd intended to be.** By the time I got home last night, I was downright grumpy again.
But today! Bright sunshine and temperatures around 60 degrees! I ran a couple of errands this morning, opened the windows when I got back home (just a little, because it was still a bit chilly and very windy, but enough to let the fresh air inside), did the dishes, unpacked my suitcase (a feat I wasn't able to accomplish in the weeks after our Tahoe trip over MLK weekend), took the dog for a long walk, shunned the television in favor of reading and music, and even planned what I'll make for dinner as soon as David gets home.
David hates daylight savings time, but I'm already looking forward to March 8th, when I'll have an extra evening hour of my magic prescription. Bring on the sun!
** I still had a lovely time, and was thrilled to get to see the Moshers and meet my truly adorable godson, Blaise. My mood stemmed from the cloud cover, not the company.
