Hello, Friends! I hope this Wednesday-Hump-Day finds you well. Today is cold, gray, dreary and snowy and we are gearing up for our first real snowfall of the year. I love the snow, especially when it first falls and no one has yet attacked it with their shovels. As soon as Hubby gets home from work (early, I hope), we will hunker down with some comfort food, a fire and a hot, steamy mug of hot chocolate!
I have had so many posts in mind for this New Year, and already the time has gotten away from me and I haven't been able to write. Partly because our holidays got extended with a last-minute, post-Christmas visit from my sister who is currently living in Europe. Partly because of the death of a dear, dear friend whom I miss to the point of tears and whom I am desperately anxious to see again someday in Heaven. And partly because I am just kind of blue these days. Ever just been in the dumps for no apparent reason? I don't feel like cooking, don't feel like calling up a good friend, don't even feel like getting up to my old trick of attacking my house with bleach wipes and a broom and working myself into a better mood. Yesterday I tried napping, but Baby Boy wasn't really into a nap, himself, so I couldn't fall asleep. This morning Baby Boy was kind enough to sleep in late, so I did too and thought that would help. Not really. Then, after a lengthy fuss (which is not normal) he fell asleep for a good nap late this morning. So while he was napping I let myself be lazy and read a book, watched my favorite tv show (Real Housewives - ashamed to admit it but I am a huge fan), ate a comfort food lunch (lasagne and Texas Toast)....and still am not motivated!!
This is not exactly how I wanted to begin my blog for the year, so I have to apologize in advance to all my new friends out there. But I would love your input here! What do you do to work yourself out of the blues?
P.S. I promise the Christmas theme will not stay up until July! I am working on some new stuff and have a few kinks to work out first...
P.P.S. So I haven't chosen a new graphic theme for my blog yet but at least the Christmas decorations are down! And it isn't even July! And I found a new trick for beating the blues: crawl around on the floor playing with the cutest baby you've ever seen until your knees are bruised. Why didn't I think of that two days ago? Worked like a charm!
