Hey all, I could spend this whole blog writing about all the things I want to write about but haven't had time...or all the things I want to do but haven't been able to. Such is life in the springtime with young children. Typically I spend this time of year re-organizing my house or garage, but my baby won't have any of that. Yesterday I felt like I had consumed 10 espressos for breakfast, I was all buzzed from spending too much time in the sun the previous two days. So, back on with the hat and sunglasses!
I have learned that I need to be much more careful this time of year about my compliance to the whole blood type program. No addictive avoids (corn and milk are still occasionally my downfall), and more exercise. Tonight I did manage to go for a walk at sunset with the family (after eating a nice steak), and it was all great. We pushed strollers up some mean hills, and I sure needed the workout. We were rewarded with a great view of a great sunset, and sleepy kids when we got them home.
Bipolar Seasonal Affective Disorder, it's an interesting one. I'm on a fall/spring schedule, with those being my worst times, a couple weeks after each time change or equinox is my worst time, gradually improving until each solstice when it resolves for the most part. Fall emotions are in shades of black, and spring emotions are in shades of red. A bit of mania can be fun, but too much gets frightening. I think I've adjusted what I need to now, but I still hope for these cool, rainy, overcast days like today. Anybody out there like me? Well, I know there's nobody exactly like me...
