Depressing Day

I have been pretty depressed for most of the day.

This is primarily due to the fact that it has been raining pretty much all day and most of the evening, and coupled with the fact that it has been quite chilly, the weather has got me down and out. Couple this with the fact that my leg is still badly painful, enough that walking is an exercise in agony, and well... Add to that that I've taken in my car for servicing (the business with the oil or whatever fluid is leaking finally needed to get fixed, despite the fact that money is a bit tight right now). I'll find out tomorrow what's going on with that, but in the meantime arranged with Donna to get a lift in with her to work. I've known for a long time that I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), so it's just been a miserable day.

On the other hand, things are looking up somewhat. I've just finished watching Dancing with the Stars, and that always cheers me up a bit. Tonight, head judge Len Goodman was feeling somewhat peckish himself, obviously, and Cheryl Burke's partner suffered an injury, but those were the only bad moments of DwtS.

Tomorrow, the weather is supposed to stay chilly, but the sun will be out, so that will be good. And, of course, the DVD version of The Golden Compass comes out, so that will be a perk for the day.
