Fall is definitely in the air here. The trees are changing. The air has gotten much cooler. It's now a game of how much cold can we hold out on before turning on the furnace. So far so good. It does make for a stuffy house though.
The day light has dramatically decreased too. Many people say they love fall but I despise it. Yes it is pretty. Yes it is a nice break from the hot temperatures. Yes Christmas is right around the corner but I hate being in so much darkness. I don't deal well with waking up when it is dark out. As this gets worse, I leave for work at sunrise and it's already dark when I leave work. The depression kicks in pretty hard until this shit turns around. Well, that and when it's bitter ass cold I'm not the happiest girl either. I have learned thought that I do fare better in the bitter cold than the roast your balls off hot.
I've been sick as a dog for the past couple of days now too. Last night it took a shot of codeine, half a shot of plain cough medicine, a slathering of vicks, 2 benadryl, a shot of booze, and a cup of tea to finally get my ass to pass out while coughing my brains out. I slept in the livingroom in an attempt to not keep hubby up. Yeah. Worked about that well. I even busted out a dvd of a classic Garfield special that Mom would always play when we were sick as children. That just made the coughing a bit more bearable.
Today I have to go to my niece's birthday party. Yippy. Inlaw time. Just what I always wanted. Bah.. Better hit the shower..
