It's official, the Seasonal Adjustment Disorder is kicking in. Yuck. I've never had any problem with seasonal transitions until I came to Rexburg. It's too dark all the time during winter and it kills me. I hate having to put on a lamp when I get up in the morning - this time of year I seem to get up an hour later than usual because of hating to put on a lamp to light up the room and because I just can't settle down at night - dreading the dark morning. Where is the sun? If it was snowing it would make the apartment brighter because of the blinding whiteness... Where is the snow? I sat at my craft table last night for 20 minutes and couldn't come up with anything to do. That's how bad it is... Dang.
I miss summertime. I think being so far away from the sea is taking it's toll on me too.
I'm looking for internships for Stuart and have decided that Scotland is number 1 on the list but there are a bunch of other places that are number 2 - all in sunny, happy places. Mostly I've been looking into Zoo internships - dolphin training and other such wonderful things. We're planning on giving up our apartment this summer to save money - like we should have done every other summer. It's important for us to get along independently - that's why we haven't been focussing on internships in Washington. This year has been a year of massive learning and "Independance" has been a huge part of it all. We're strengthening our family unit and hopefully we'll have an adventure whilst we're at it - and getting a suntan too.
