OK, I'm just plain bored now

Am I bored or really depressed? That's the big question today. I'm sick of this weather - more single digits. I'm sick of being cold. I'm sick of making dinner for kids who complain no matter what I cook. My clothes all bore me stiff. I'm ready to burn my parka. My van is just plain dirty and gross, but it's too cold to clean it out. I've got a small migraine that won't go away. Pinching pennies is starting to hurt my fingers. All I want to do is curl up on our comfy couch and nap until late April.

Addendum: it's a whole 6 degrees right now. It was 7 BELOW when I went to work this morning. Will someone please dial up Minnesota and let it know it's MARCH?

Oh, man. I'm thisclose to actually wishing winter would end, just so you could enjoy spring! It sounds like you need it. (I'm in full agreement about the filthtastic cars: I think you could catch a disease just closing our trunk.)

Grab a good book and snuggle in. To hell with the kids, go buy some ramen noodles by the case and let them at it. Get your sewing machine out and create something. Bundle up really, really well and go for a brisk walk, don't ask the kids to go with you, they'll just whine about it. Go to a matinee! Clean out one closet. Type up more of mom's diaries. This should keep you busy for a while. Spring is coming, I saw many signs of it this week on my walks. There are little black bugs all over the snow on the trails by the river, the trees look like their holding a secret under their bark, we're thinking about maple syruping soon, and I could here the melt deep in the rocks on the cliffs. Hang in there MJC!!
