The blog post I had hoped I would write someday.
Every day now, I am spending a half hour in front of the light box. I'm not sure if it specifically is working or if it was the detox or some other stuff I am doing (gotta say that the detox was most definitely part of it). But I am feeling some specific brand of awesome that I don't know I have ever experienced. You know how sometimes you meet people and they seem happy and you think "what are they on?" Well right now, I may be that person; all fresh and minty and sparkly. In hight school I would have hated me. And right now, if I weren't trying so hard, I would think that there's something very strange going on. But it's by design. I'm not going to mess with any of it. I'm just going to keep doing it. And I am going to assume or hope that this is what normal people feel like all the time. I'm actually looking forward to doing my holiday cards tonight. And last night I was thinking that I may actually look forward to the cooler weather. What the?
So as I mentioned, part of the daily ritual is a half hour in front of the light box (not the three hours that I thought which produced a need for eye drops). That means that I am sitting at my desk for 30 minutes a day on the weekend too. Trying not to spend much time looking at e-mail, I am looking at facebook and reading the blogs in my bloglines account. In the past, I told myself that going anywhere near my home office on the weekend was naughty (and really not even the interesting kind of naughty). I have changed my mind. Thought there may come a time when I plop down here with a book and leave the computer to its hibernating or whatever. I will again be exploring the art of the short blog post. Yay.
I have to say that I'm sorry that I have been a bit of a buzz-kill lately. But onward and upward, my friends. Thanks for sticking with me.
