Is it just me, or does everyone have the winter blahs?

I’m trying, I really am. To be up. Positive. Smiley all the time. And it works, for the most part. But then, every once in a while, I just feel this big sluuuuuuump as my energy and motivation collapse. Then, all I want to do it crawl into bed, hide under a pillow, and stay there until April OR the daily average temperature is 70 degrees or so, whichever comes first.

(I’ll be honest: the ice storm in December, followed by this most recent cold snap, did not help matters. It was a like a mega dose of winter, total excess, and now we’re all hungover and suffering. Or something like that.)

This is about the time of year I am sick of wearing sweaters, sick of bundling up. Sick of all my jeans, which I swear are shrinking in the dryer, because I just won’t even entertain the possibility that all the chocolate I’m eating could turn against me like that, no way, can’t happen. Aaargh.

*takes deep breath*
*smiles*

Anyway, so how are you?

This weekend, I bought Titanic on DVD. (Stop laughing!) Okay, so I love that movie. I do. I’ll admit it. And I had so much fun watching it, jumping past the boring parts to the parts I love that *still* choke me up. Goodness. My DVD collection is getting a bit out of control. I might have to put a moratorium on trips to Best Buy until I watch every one of them again. But what are movies if not escapes? And people: days like this, cold, with February still looming, we need to escape. Big time.

Speaking of which, I’m going shopping.

have a good day everyone….
