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?
