I hate to say it, but I really don’t like this time of year. It’s just so gloomy. It’s still winter, but no the cheery kind of winter that comes with Christmas. It’s just kind of soggy.
Usually, February is the worst month of all for me. Even though it is short, it seems to drag on and on. I just can’t ever wait to get to my favorite time of year- SPRING!
But this year, I’m begging February to come so that I can get as far away from January as possible. Wait- before I go any further, I would just like to say that I am exceptionally blessed and truly happy with my life. I just want to let you all know why I have such dark circles under my eyes, and why I may be a little grumpy.
We got home from our lovely Christmas vacation to Arizona and I had a nasty back injury from sitting on the airplane all funny. Then, we all got a yucky cold and flu that hit really hard.
The bright spot in our month was the one week we were all well, and for the first time since November (really) my house was clean and my Mom came to visit for the weekend. It was so nice to see her. Actually, we see her quite often but it had been a really long time since she had come down to see us. We got to relax and spend some time together and we finally went to Sweety’s for frozen yogurt. HELLO! I could go there every single day and not get tired of it. Seriously. 9 different kinds of yogurt and over 60 toppings?! Did I mention that it’s a SELF SERVE frozen yogurt place? Yummy!
Unfortunately, the day Mom left, Nathan came down with the flu. This time it was the barfing kind. Yay. Then I got it, then Ryan got it. Now, we are all well. We did end up taking Nathan to the ER after 4 days of being sick, but thankfully he wasn’t dehydrated yet. They gave him some medicine for his sick tummy, and within minutes he was sitting up begging for snacks (after eating pretty much nothing all week).
Yesterday, we were finally all healthy again and now the car won’t start. Dang. I guess I should take this opportunity to catch up on laundry or something.
So anyway, I’m thinking that this year February can only be a step up, right?
Okay, now a little bit of good thoughts because I really don’t want to be ungrateful. I’ve been following a new diet and so far I’ve lost about 6 pounds. It feels really good to be taking such good care of my body. Although, I’ve been aching for more of that frozen yogurt . . .
Also, I’m planning a giveaway in the somewhat near future. I’ve been wanting to do a giveaway once I hit 200 posts and I’ve got less than 10 to go! YAY!
All right, enough rambling for today!
