The alarm clock went off this morning.  I opened my eyes and it was still pitch black.  This is the worse time of year for me.  I’m a sun person–a summer-long-days person.  Who in the hell wants to get out of bed in the cold dark of December?

This is also a time of year when I have to keep depression at bay. 

Working out is good for depression but when I get home at 5:30 and it’s dark out, the motivation factor is very weak.  Thank goodness December 21st is on the way.  The days will start to get longer and before I know it, Spring will be at my doorstep.  So saith Pollyanna.

I just have to keep positive thoughts in my head and push forward. . .

    I have the same problem. In the summer i crawl into work at 7:30ish. In the winter i crawl into work at 8ish. What a pain in the ass!

  2. Yes, I wake up much earlier than I’d like to. What to do for about an hour and half of morning darkness? Thank goodness for NPR and blogs.

  3. I really hear you. I leave my house at 5:30 AM. At this time of year it’s pitch black uout. This morning it was also 13°.
