You guys, I've lost my personality.
I just kind of feel like I have nothing to say. Nothing really to contribute. And I mean in real life as well as on this blog. It's the normal winter blah crap, I know, but it is always a little bit alarming to me when I feel like this.
This year, my amazing friend Hilary bought me a SAD light for Christmas. Seriously, isn't she amazing? From all the way in California she could tell I was having a hard time with my seasonal issues and a few days later a package showed up on my doorstep. It's an alarm clock and it wakes me up with bright blue light, and I also try to sit with the light every morning for around a half hour. I can carry it around the house with me, so even if I'm making lunches or breakfast or getting the kids bundled up for the bus I can still benefit from the light. I have to say, it has definitely helped with the energy levels. I can tell a huge difference on the days I didn't use it for whatever reason (usually dead battery--I am so horrible at remembering to charge things up) and I get so much more done on the days I bask in its glow. It also seems to be helping with my circadian rhythms, since I have to get up so early. I'm actually falling asleep earlier and more quickly than I usually do.
However, it doesn't really seem to be helping with the personality loss.
I am a boring, boring person.
In other news (or perhaps it's the same news?), I am bored of the cruise pictures. Mostly because I am boring. I promise to get a few up tomorrow, because I'll have more time than usual. And since I have nothing else to say, I may as well talk about our amazing vacation.
PS Goodness, I think that next time my light runs out of battery power I can just look at the picture! I'm sorry if you needed to pull out your sunglasses to read this post.
