Fall is always hard one way or the other. Either I am desperately depressed, or manic/psychotic. Most years it’s depressed, and this year is no exception.
When I am depressed sometimes I look for retail therapy to shop my way out of it. A bad tactic and it is always short lived. This year I have satisfied myself in little ways thus far– coffee, buying little trinkets for the kids within budget. But I have my eye on bigger ticket items….cameras and lenses and things like that. We even went to Target Friday night with the idea that I might by an entry level Canon or Nikon DSLR……thankfully, when I got there and got to looking at them, I realized quite rightly that it was nonsensical to buy something so much lower quality than I already have, something that would just frustrate me and make me realize quickly that I wasted our money. So, we walked out with a little toy for Oliver and candy for the big boys and that was it.
October through March is light therapy season, and I have started it in fits and starts. It helps when I remember to actually sit down and do it.
My second wedding season of the year starts next weekend and I am excited about it. The other reason for delaying my camera-buying is because if I play my cards right, come mid-November I will have enough to buy another Fuji camera, and I won’t feel like I settled or compromised.
I bought Abby a rubber squeaky chicken last week and she has been even more nuts than usual ever since then.
As usual, I feel like I am writing about nothing.
