Must be the Weather

This morning I woke up and just could not get myself out of bed. I heard Alice talking to herself and making noise so went to get her out of her crib, but then brought her right back into my bed with me, not wanting to start the day yet. She didn't like that much. It took lot's of convincing to get my body to sit up, scoot to the edge of the bed, put my feet on the floor, and stand. Once up and out of bed I started opening the blinds around the house to "let the sun in", only there wasn't any sun. The world outside is back to being gray and somber - I think it's seriously affecting my mood. I thought we were through with inversion/cloud coverage/gray skies.

The past few days I've popped out of bed and opened the windows to see a bright blue sky and the sun shining on everything making the world look happy and inviting. Alice and I ate breakfast and quickly got dressed so we could go outside into the beautiful spring weather (30 degrees feels like spring compared to what we've had the past while). We went to the park and played outside and I felt great all day.

But not this morning. Must be the weather. Breakfast was long and drawn out, every little task I do feels so oooooo  ooo hard and all I want to do is sit on the couch and watch Sesame Street with Alice. Hopefully we get the sun back in our skies soon. My days seem to go much better when it's there.

Funny that this scary ball of fire has such a happy presence in our skies and in our hearts.

May the sun be shining on you today.
