Blech. That pretty much sums up how I feel right now. I’m sure you’ve noticed that my blogging has taken a nosedive and, if you follow me on Twitter, you have noticed that I’m less…me. Or something.
I think that I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. I’m not 100% sure nor do I have an official diagnosis, but after doing some thinking about my depression and when it occurs, I notice that it hits its peak in the fall. Maybe it’s allergies, maybe it’s waking up in the dark, maybe it’s knowing that it’s lovely outside and I can’t experience that because MY OFFICE HAS NO FREAKING WINDOWS, or maybe it’s something else completely, but whatever it is, this time of year is very difficult for me in terms of mood, productivity, and energy levels. Last week I felt the first stirrings of “blah” and proceeded to sit on the couch and do nothing after work almost all week.
If anyone suffers from SAD or has any experience with it, please let me know if what I’m feeling is SAD or if it’s something else. Or if I’m just crazy (I actually already know this, but sometimes it’s good to get a confirmation 🙂 ).
Anyway…on to the menu, which is pretty much the same as last week since I didn’t cook much at all.
Sunday: Clean out the fridge night.
Monday: WW chicken fingers and fries (bumped from last week)
Tuesday: Pasta with pesto (possibly the last fresh batch of the season!)
Wednesday: Out to dinner with family
Thursday: Tilapia with caper-parsley sauce, roasted potatoes (bumped from last week)
Friday: Babysitting (ordering pizza)
Saturday: Babysitting again and dinner is TBD (if you think I’m cooking for three kids 6 and under you’re insane)
What’s on your menu for the week?
