I have the winter blues. I'm stuck in a place between here and there. And in the south it can be even more confusing. My little boy wore shorts on Saturday. Last night I had to turn the heat up. Way up!
The winter blues bring on all kinds of problems for me it seems. I lose my zip! I can't get a thing finished and it gets dark at five o'clock in the afternoon and I want to go to bed by six. Daylight Savings Time kicked my butt.
There's a lot of research out there that says we have good cause to be depressed in the winter due to the fact we get less sunshine. Ok, I'll say I believe that. I'm feeling pretty down these days and technically it's still Fall! But to me, winter has arrived.
On top of just having the general blues, I've got bronchitis. Yesterday I thought it was better. This morning, I'm back to square one it seems. So I'm getting my little boy off to school and crawling back into bed. How many times during the winter do you do just that?
Someone on television suggested a winter sport to get rid of the winter blues. Yeah, right. For those of you who ski or ice skate, God love ya. I can't do either. I don't live in an area where all of that kind of activity is prevalent either.
So I'm trying to figure out what to do to beat these blues. Hmmm...curl up in bed with a really great book? Now that sounds like a plan. A really steamy romance to help keep me warm--for lack of man material at this time. lol
Suddenly skiing and ice skating take on new meaning. If I were to go ice skating and fall down a lot, surely some handsome hunk would help me up. And I can see myself in a cabin in the mountains--SNOWBOUND--with a gorgeous ski instructor. How about lying on a rug in front of the fireplace? With the ski instructor. Yep. That's it. I think I've found my winter olympics--dreaming about hot hot hunks in all these fantastic romance novels. Yum.
So what are you doing to beat the winter blues?
