Here are the frayed edges of my current coping with the whole Depression crap...
So here is a thought: perhaps the decrease in sunlight is having an effect on me. I have an unused happy light. I even know where it is.
Today (okay, technically yesterday since this is a back-dated post) sun rose at 7:12 and set at 4:43. This gives me 9.5 hours of potential daylight. Of course, I am not outside for most of that time. And it has been quite cloudy for many of the days lately.
I donated a truckload of stuff today with the help of a friend. And another friend's truck.
I estimated it at 9 bags, but it was three bags and bigger furniture items and outgrown toys. I am really racking up the bag count early on here. It is not just in case I lose momentum later on. I have had many things sorted into bags that need to go and then I HAVE MISPLACED THESE BAGS among the bags and boxes of things that need to stay but have no permanent home. Sad, sad, homeless items.
I notice a difference in the available floorspace in my home. It makes me very happy. I am trying to avoid donating things that other people are still using. I have already messed up on this once. But not on purpose.
Grateful Crap: that lighter feeling I had after emptying the truck.
