I don't want to be here!

I've never considered myself to be a seasonal affective disorder kind of gal. I like the rain. Usually I like the gray. I lived in Alaska for 5 years without trouble, but this morning for some reason...

I did not want to get up.
I did not want to shower (so I didn't).
I did not want to get dressed (so I put it off as long as possible).
I did not want to go to work. (so I was late)
I do not want to be here now!

I want to be at home.
I want to be in my bed.
I want to be dozing in and out of consciousness, perhaps with some nice calming music in the background.
I want to have a warm, furry ferret curled up by the small of my back providing a little extra warmth (because damn they are like furnaces!).

If you need even more warmth, I can ship one of the dogs to you. I get to pick which one.

Never mind the dogs and the ferrett, go talk to some random guy like we bet!

Spring in the NW can be hard on you. You get little glimpses of what it might be like if the clouds would just go away for a few seconds...it took me a year to get used to the weather there when I was living in WA and I still didn't want to get out of bed in the winter.

Telecommuting is the way to go...you can do that in your PJs.

That may be what's making it hard. We get 2 or 3 beautiful days and you think the worst is over, then it is pouring down rain for 5 days... Today is beautiful! Sun shining, warm, etc. Tomorrow, who knows.

First of all, call your EAP. :P

Secondly, what's this business about bets? I want in on the action, dammit!

Pets in laps - emanating warmth.

Pets spooning me - blech!

I like to be spooned very much, but not by someone who I drive around in a cage or a box.
