Here comes the sun...doo...doo...doo...doo...

What is going on with the weather Utah? It is the beginning of January and I have spent a good portion of the week riding bikes, shooting hoops and playing OUTSIDE. All this WITHOUT a coat! It is almost eerie to see the sun shining down on snow deprived trees. I am in NO way complaining but I do have some fears. I hope that this abnormally pleasant weather isn't prelude to a late blooming winter. I do not want to have snow in JUNE!!! My other concern is that there will be no "greatest snow on Earth" on which I can ski/board. This is the first year my whole little family can hit the slopes. Hmmmmm.
The reason I bring up the weather is because my mood has been unusually pleasant for this time of year as well. A couple posts ago I mentioned being bummed after coming home from vaca. I have since settled into my normal routine. In January's past the dark, cold weather has left me less motivated, grumpy and sometimes angry. You would think that after 30 years I would have come to accept the fact we have winter! LOL I think that every year, when the leaves begin to fall, a little part of me thinks maybe, just ,maybe winter will forget to make an appearance.
Thus far, maybe this year it won't!

A friend of mine stumbled across your blog, and suggested I check it out. I, too, have bipolar disorder, and live in UT. Sorry the sun has once again hid his head, and winter is most definitely here. Maybe I will make the most of it, and get outside with my kiddos tomorrow to make a snowman.

I have only read a few posts so far, but I wanted to introduce myself, and let you know I am reading. :) I am Heather, in Layton UT, the mom to a 7 year old boy, twin 4 year old boys, a 16 month old girl, and a 3 month old boy. Life is busy! And in my frequent highs and lows, and we have quite the adventure ride going on in my house. I am 33 now, and was diagnosed at 25. I would love to hear from you.
