I’ve come to realize that I enjoy January for about 2.5 seconds.
What I mean is, on January 1st I’m completely ready for the new year. Fresh slates and new beginnings. Setting goals & making plans.
But by (oh, give me a date from a week or so ago) mid month the newness has fizzled out. I’m over the short days & hum drum routine and I’m craving spring. I don’t know what I’d do if I lived in a state where it snowed. Or maybe, because snow means it stays cold, I’d deal with it better than this up & down crazy weather we have here in Florida.
I think what gets me most are the short days. The fact that by the time the kids and I get home from school there is hardly any light streaming through our windows and barely any time for us to be outside soaking up the sun & fresh air. It makes me & the kids unhappy and after working a long day with a room full of rambunctious kids, having three of those same kind of kids on my hands while I’m trying to make dinner is not fun at all.
I think that is what is partly to blame for my lack of blogging, or anything else lately for that matter. Laundry is piling up, meal planning hasn’t been great, and we haven’t completed any kind of house project since part one of the laundry room makeover. We (or me at least) are in a slump.
Does anyone else feel like this? What on Earth do you do to get through?
