Sunshine On My Shoulders Makes Me Happy
I've self-diagnosed myself with a mild case of SADD (Seasonal Affected Disorder). It's not a full-blown case, because it's not as if I fall into a fit of depression when the sun isn't shining, but it definitely has an effect on me.
Seeing the sun just makes me happy. Being warm also makes me happy. I HATE cold weather. I don't think hate is a strong enough word. Words cannot describe how much I disklike the cold. It's miserable. It's literally painful at times. And, contrary to popular belief, I cannot just put on more clothes. It doesn't fix the problem.
My mom once told me that when the weather starts warming up in the spring, my mood lifts. My hubby told me just the other day that he can tell a difference when I've taken a really warm shower as opposed to one not as warm.
So, there you have it. Sunshine & warm weather make me happy. More evidence that I should live on the beach.
Maybe the sun will make an appearance tomorrow.
