Stand And Deliver. Search And Destroy. Seasonal Affective Disorder. Yeah, that last one would be me. I have a Happy Light (yes, that’s its trade name), but I was feeling so good up to the holidays, I didn’t need it. Besides, it was somewhere in my messiest room, the one I can’t walk into. I did a meager search from the doorway, but didn’t see it.
But I’ve been noticing that I’ve become more and more depressed since the start of 2009. So last Saturday, I was “ordered” to find the Happy Light on Sunday. I was able to make a path into the room (I really have to find a better container for my Christmas stuff), but still couldn’t find the darn thing.
So I thought, maybe I put it in the other clutter room. Yep. It was there, in the closet. Nice to know I actually placed it somewhere and didn’t just throw it on a pile. And even better, I actually used it Sunday evening. I’d say things are looking up, but work is still as crappy as ever. Even crappier for the Army folks I work with.
