It’s tooth-shattering cold here, though at least we have sunshine. My winter-blues fight is not very adventurous as I hate driving on the sheets of ice that make up our roads (no plowing here). We stay inside as much as we can, and read a lot. I still don’t have my Christmas taken down. Maybe next week… Sabra January 14, 2013 at 11:55 am (5 years ago) Hope you are all feeling better!! WIsh you could come enjoy our winter, but we still have been cooped up a little with this rain. I want to run around in the snow! I am a bit more content to stay home, though, and waste away time trying to come up with random schedules of productiveness that never get implemented. Haha. I just have a hard time starting projects. I wonder why that is?? Anyway! Hope things are looking brighter up there! xo Manda January 15, 2013 at 2:04 pm (5 years ago) Hey, sisters! Thanks for the comments. Sorry about my sad and depressing post. I am feeling much better now. Everyone is on the mend, excluding the constantly runny noses, and things have picked up a bit to keep me busy enough. If I have some things to do then I can’t think about myself so much. I think that is key. Stop thinking about yourself and think of others. xoxo Caitlin January 16, 2013 at 1:07 pm (5 years ago) Hi there, stranger over in Oregon here! I’ve read Jessica’s blog for years and found my way over to yours. Do you take Vitamin D? I HAVE to take it in Oregon to beat the winter blues. They are terrible up here – grey, rain, cold…blah. I live for the outdoors – hiking, camping, running – so I know how being locked up inside can feel. Anyway, just thought I’d drop the tip. When you’re not getting vitamin D from the sun, you can feel lethargic, dull, and groggy. Good luck! Oh, and also, maybe planning something for Valentine’s Day to look forward to?? Tallyho!
