I have several close friends (and one weasel-sister) that winter really agrees with. Maybe you’re in that category too? The I-Love-Winter-and-Winter-Loves-Me category? If that’s you, I have to tell you, I’m more than a little jealous.
See, each February, I look at the calendar, see “First Day of Spring” in the far-off distance and feel a smidge defeated. Ok, actually, I start getting antsy for sunshine on January 2nd (I’m fine with snow through Christmas and New Year’s).
`And even though this is an every-winter occurrence, it’s still a little disheartening to be here. Several things compounding my winter blahs this year? Jord being far far away, our after-graduation plans being up in the air, the fact that we are in the middle of the Winter Storm of the Year in Denver (17″ of snow and still falling), my Smooches simultaneously stumbling into ‘challenging’ seasons (mostly challenging for their mama- their constant state of disobedience, and even their constant tantrum throwing, don’t seem to effect their moods one bit). Blah. Blah. Blah.
Does this happen to you? Do things seem particularly gloomy right now? I’ll commiserate with you! What’s the worst part of February to you (AMEN in advance)?
Spring, we’re calling you! Come quickly!
