January Exhausts Me.

Last year, when winter failed to arrive, I worried. I worried about global warming, about my not-as-fuel-efficient-as-it-could-be car, about my less than stellar recycling efforts…

I worried winter would never return.

That we had entered the beginning of the end (not in a religious sense. Just in an environmental sense).

I even found myself wishing for snow.

Well, guess what? Winter remembered where it lives this year. We’ve had snow, freezing cold temperatures, and day after day of ¬†gray, sunless days.

And now I remember how much I hate winter.

I really, really hate it.

It saps the energy from my bones. The happiness from my day. And the words from my brain.

Did I mention I hate winter?

I’d be happy to hibernate until spring, but unfortunately, humans aren’t wired that way.

So instead I’ll whine and moan and groan the days away. And eventually? Spring will come again.

I hope.

    Oh, winter… It sounds good to us in Texas, after days of 70s and 80s. Well, good might be stretching it, but a little more winter than we have would be nice. I do not, however, want the kind of weather you’re having. Basically, I’m the Goldilocks of Weather!

    Hope you’re well. I’ve been a terrible commenter, but I promise I’m still out here reading!

      70s? 80s? That sounds like paradise, sister. Do me a favor and go outside and sit in the sunshine tomorrow, okay?

    I am sick of the gray, dismal weather. Even though it warmed up here in Michigan it’s still wet, soggy, and very gray outside.

    I miss the sun. A lot.

      I don’t think the sun lives here anymore. It’s cold. There’s no sun. And Indiana drivers? Can NOT deal with snow. At least that’s one thing Michiganders do right…

    I HEAR you. Oh goodness, so much moaning goes on this time of year.
