Fall Doldrums

Hi everyone!

So, I don't know if this happens to any of you, but every year around this time I fall victim to a major case of the doldrums...the days get shorter, I have less to do at work, I'm not outside nearly as much, it gets cool and I end up feeling sulky and restless and I have a lot of trouble snapping myself out of it. Does this happen to any of you and if so, how do you get over it? In my case, I just have to wait and let it pass. It usually takes a few weeks of ups and downs until I fall into my new routine, which usually happens about the same time the leaves start changing and I get wrapped up in the beauty of that and then I'm okay. Don't get me wrong, I love fall. I love the smells, sounds and sights of it, it's just that compared to summer it can be kind of a drag sometimes, especially when I think that after fall, there's invariably that's really a drag. I would do perfectly well in a two climate system that hopped between two seasons, summer and fall with snow for two weeks before and two weeks after Christmas, anything else is just overkill, wouldn't you say?
