Cooped Up with Winter Funk

Hi.  J Monkeys here, channeling my inner Ross Geller.  Can’t you just hear him, in that whiny, dejected voice saying “Hi.”  Oooh, maybe I can find a video on YouTube.  Yup.  Here it is.  I feel like the 3rd one. 

I’ve got the winter blues.  It’s been WICKED cold here in CT for the last week or two.  I don’t know, it feels like forever.  I can’t seem to summon the energy to do anything other than huddle in front of the fire, wearing my warmest sweatshirt, bundled in a blanket, watching a movie. 

Yeah, yeah, I’ve been working in my office – reorganizing, cleaning and getting rid of the clutter.  But the job isn’t done yet.  I’ve got a good 7 hours to go.  And I’ve been working toward my other January goals, too.  But I’m feeling down.  I’d love to get out and go for a walk, but I’ve been busy with boring household chores and the wind chill hasn’t been very inviting. 

groundhog-10I get like this every year this time.  I hold out hope that Punxsutawney Phil will predict an early spring, but it always seems to come around March 21st no matter what the rodent says.  Maybe I need a viewing of Groundhog Day.  Or maybe a pedicure.  Either way, my creative juices seem to be frozen, along with any motivation I usually manage to muster.  What’s a girl to do?  Maybe I should check IMDB and see what Mr. S has got going on.  Hmm.  I haven’t seen Disconnect or What Masie Knew.  Maybe I should get them on Netflix.

Today’s secret: I’m frozen.  And not just because I keep the thermostat at 58.

Today’s question: How do you recharge your batteries when the sputter out on you?  Unfortunately, a much needed trip to the Caribbean is out of the question.

    1. Hey! How are you? Yeah – my boys are exhibiting signs of cabin fever – big time. The one day last week it was warm enough to go outside, the yard was full of puddles and it wasn’t warm enough for that. Yikes. I’m taking them to the gym today to run around the track!
