The Day After

I think the worst day of the year is "the day after". The day after Christmas (when all the presents have been opened), the day after New Year's (when you take the Christmas decorations down and go back to work or school), the day after the 4th of July (all the fireworks are gone and it's unbearably hot)--it can be the day after anything that you've planned and waited for....

It's like waking up with a bad hangover. And maybe it is a hangover, of sorts. You get all the adrenaline and excitement in the build up for a big day, and then all of a sudden it's over and all the happy brain chemicals are gone. It's no wonder days after feel so crummy.

But it is snowing outside, so at least it's a pretty day after.
