The Winter Blah's

I saw this picture and it reminded me of how I've been feeling lately and honestly it had me wishing I could take a nap.

It also brought to my mind thoughts of the Winter Blahs, I have them this year. Sometimes I get them and sometimes I don't it's never a definite for me unlike so many who actually suffer from Winter related Depression year after year. When I do get them though everything suffers, my reading, my reviewing and my energy level.

I can't wait for Spring and Summer, we've been getting glimpses of it here in PA, but nothing that stays for days at end. When I was younger I never understood why so many people were down over the winter months, but in recent years I seem to relate more and more.

One of my friend's mother suffered severely from the winter blues, so much so that she up and moved to Florida to escape them. She happier now I assume, but such drastic measures seem to be over the top IMO. Although if I felt like this ever year I can't say that the thought of moving to a warmer climate might just seem like a dream come true.

So I say bring on the nice weather, so I can go outside with my kids, teach my youngest son to ride his bike and walk my dogs without freezing to death while I do it. I see a light at the end of the tunnel, I just wish the car would go faster.

  1. I hear you on the winter blues. It seems as though spring is never going to arrive. Love the picture. You can never have enough naps...especially this time of year.
