Driving Through Depression

I’ve actually had a good morning! It’s only 9:30 a.m. and I’ve actually done housework. What!? I never do housework. I also made myself breakfast and even cooked up some hollandaise which I adore. Very productive morning so far and I am very proud of myself for it. I have a couple things lined up for my day, like pulling up the garden and watching the new episode of Scream Queens, but I’ve been feeling the best when I get out of the house so I’m wondering where I could go or what I could do. I tried to go to support group on Saturday, did I mention that? But the big scary NAMI building was closed. I’m not sure why. I have lots of fun Saturday plans which I’m looking forward to (one is the college’s homecoming parade and the other is a dress-up-your-pets parade, both great photo opportunities I feel like) so I may not make it to the bipolar group on Saturday and thought about going today. The only group today that I think could be a potential one for me to go to is a women’s wellness group but I’m not exactly sure what it would entail and it’s in about 45 minutes and I haven’t showered. So yeah.

I read about a ghost town a ways outside of the city but I know Nicole would want to go with me so I can’t do that today. We’ve actually probably already driven past it during one of our many drives. We go on drives together almost every night, I know I’ve mentioned that before. Sometimes we just drive through downtown and people watch, other times Nicole picks a road and takes it out of town and we end up in some little small town outside the city. These photos are actually from our most recent long adventure on Saturday. We were actually out during daylight so I was able to take a couple photos although we didn’t really stop much so I didn’t get great ones. But I would like to stop more and actually take proper photos while we’re out on our adventures. She seems game for it. I’ve been reading a blog called The Dainty Squid and she photographs abandoned places which is something I’ve always wanted to do. Nicole said she would be up for that too, but said she would rather I didn’t do it alone so those will have to be weekend adventures we take together. Which is fine by me. I don’t know why driving or going on drives helps me so much, but it really does. I just get very clear headed and I feel so comfortable being on the road.
