Central Standard Time Blues
I generally hate this time of the year. While I was grateful for the extra hour of sleep when I set the clock back one hour, the lack of sunlight plays havoc with my Circadian rhythm.
The spring and summer months are so much fun, getting out of work with plenty of sunlight to spare. There’s the promise of adventure awaiting my return to Flower Mound, even if it is just trimming the hedges or cleaning out the garage.
Now I leave home in the first thin light of morning and return to a town bathed in a yellow sodium mist. The only adventure remaining to me is those long walks in solitude on weekend mornings through a sleepy town not yet awake. Sigh... What I wouldn't give for a vacation right now in Mexico or, better yet, Sidney.
But looking on the bright side of things, there is that impending ski trip to Colorado to look forward to, though I ache at the though of the hours ahead of me on the NordicTrac. And I also have Bailey's concert in Chicago before Christmas just on the horizon. Seeing her perform with the marching band was fun, but it really was a beating after a while. I'm so looking forward to the symphonic concert season!
And, of course, there’s the hockey season to enjoy. Go Rangers!
