Call it the depression of "waiting", call it the doldrums of winter - but man, am I LAZY lately. There are things I could do around the house: laundry, clean up the winter cobwebs, clean up my office, go grocery shopping, scrape the ice chunks off my driveway --- but I DON'T WANNA!

I called my friend Suzy on Friday night and asked her if it was horribly lame for me to go to sleep at 9:15pm. (Ironically, this would been about the time we would have started making arrangements to go "out" in college!) She assured me that it wasn't lame -- however, thankfully we talked for a long time and I didn't get to go to sleep until at least after 10pm - much more respectful!

This winter has brought SOOO much snow - and brought it so early (we've had snow since before Thanksgiving up here). Combined with the freezing weather, I am so OVER winter. I'd like to bribe Mr. Groundhog tomorrow to please bring the end to winter.

But instead of continuing to whine, I will realize that I am very lucky these days to have laundry to do - as that means I have clothes to wear and get dirty to wash, and that I have machines to clean them and water to rinse them. And I will gladly go to the store and be happy that I have enough money to shop for food without really stressing all that much. I just forget sometimes, don't we all?

Okay my house is a mess too!

I am the same way this time of year. I am so ready to be able to go outdoors and stay outdoors. Winter always bring laziness with me. I completely understand "I Don't Wanna!"

Yeah, we do forget sometimes but that's okay. I am with you on the winter depression. I am over being in the house all the time. Everyone down here doesnt leave the house during the winter, super annoying. Thank goodness it's February - almost over!

Sounds like we are all in the same boat here. Take some comfort in knowing you are not alone!

I don't wanna either and my bathrooms are telling the tale...UGH...they HAVE to be on the agenda for tomorrow!
House a wreck and laundry galore!
You'll get motivated and clean like a mad woman when you get that court date!

Amen! This time of year is hard and we don't even have snow! I can't stand to be cold and poor little Andrew loves to be outside - doesn't care what it's like! Cabin fever... By the way, 9:15 is NOT early. Wait until you are home with your little one. 9:15 will seem like a LATE bedtime for you! :-)
