i know i can't really complain about winter in georgia but i guess 11 years in new york earns me the right a little bit. this time of year i get so blue. i know intellectually spring is right there but something inside just seems to shut down. i want to curl up in bed and stay there. i can't seem to get anything right these days. this week i am burning meals, acting grumpy, finding very little motivation or creativity. i keep thinking of projects but can't seem to start or finish anything. i want to go do things but the days seem to slip out from under me. i am cross with the children and can't come up with enough fun ideas to get them inspired. what do you do this time of year to get rid of the blues? i always seem to do the opposite of what i know will help... eating lousy food, too much sugar and caffeine, not enough exercise, not enough sunshine, feeling sorry for my self, avoiding socializing with friends. why is this? come on sun and warm breezes, i'm ready for you... but not mosquitoes. that is one thing i am grateful for in winter.
this is what i really want to be doing right now. i love the photography on this blog. oh, to be so young again, just for a moment.
