The End of Fall

Well, that didn't take long. Less than one week after Central Daylight Savings time ended, and I'm already getting up before sunrise and coming home from work in the dark. Now granted, I've been working long days, but it is still disappointing.

Throw in the fact that the outdoor chores the last few weeks have revolved around start-of-winter type things like putting away the bikes, bringing in the deck furniture, and emptying out the garden hoses, and it sure feels like winter is right around the corner.

Im having the same problem. I think im going to look into one of those full spectrum lights. The're supposed to mimic the sun. Has anyone ever heard anything one way or the other about them?

One of Linzy's friends has one, I think, and likes it. It was prescribed by a doctor for Seasonal Affective Disorder or something.

The trouble is the light is called a "SAD light", which just sounds dumb.
