In the early morning hours of the past two days, we have had very loud thunderstorms. Since I don’t usually get to sleep until these early morning hours, this is particularly irritating.
Saturday morning around 4:00 am, there was a lot of flashing and loud rumbling and one particularly loud boom which I thought sounded really strange for thunder. I guess it wasn’t actually thunder because my phone was out all day Saturday.
This morning was a repeat of the early thunderstorms and we’ve had showers several times today.
I hate that something like the weather has such a big effect on how I feel and how I think. Sometimes I don’t even realize that the reason I’m achy, tired and don’t want to do anything is just because of a little moisture in the air and my arthritis. Of course, feeling this way also makes me feel a little depressed.
Even watching “Madea’s Family Reunion” hasn’t quite cheered me up yet. And I loved that movie.
I think some bright sunshine for a few days would do the trick though. According to the 7-day forecast, I’m scheduled to feel good again in between the sunny and cloudy periods on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then again on Friday.
We all need something to look forward to.
