I Think I Have The Winter Blues

I don't feel like doing ANYTHING! I feel like a total and complete slug. And what makes it worse is that whenever I start watching a show.. I get addicted. I swear, it doesn't matter what it is.. it could be the Power Rangers... I just HAVE to know what happens next. So I have been watching Heroes. I started with season one at Christmas time.. it has been sucking all my time. Why do I have to like TV so much? It is such a waste of time. But as they say, old habits die hard.. and this is my struggle. 


Anyhoo. Kirk and I celebrated our 4-year anniversary last week! That was fun. We celebrated by going to mutual. Yah, we really know how to party. We did, however, go to Village Inn for lunch for some tasty french toast. They have the BEST french toast. 

Any suggestions for fighting the winter blues.. without having to fight too hard?  :)

I have the same problem. So I decided to do a media fast, NO TV, blogging, computer I cut it all cold turkey for a week. Holy hannah did I get stuff done. Got a jump start on food storage and a ton of other stuff done on my list! Make a list and do it!!! You can. My shows I like are The Biggest Loser and 24.

I think we all go thru the winter blues. I think you just have to have something to look forward too. So maybe you should plan a fun date and then surprize Kirk by takin him out.

I have to go to bed with a plan. I have to wake up with a plan. I get the winter blues really bad and having a lively 5 year old at my side makes it hard to accomodate. I have to go to bed with a plan of what to do the next day. I rack my brain for fun things and necessary things that need to be done. At the end of the day, if my plan worked, Chase and Jeff are well taken care of and happy. Then, I sit down and reward myself and spend my night doing a few me things. Makes me feel like I have had a good day fighting the blues. Another thing that I find very necessary to put in my plan for the day...service. I look for someone EVERYDAY to serve, not always big, just small. It helps immensely!! Sorry for the long post! Love you, Hobber!

Well if I could I would go somewhere tropical or warm!! I know that is not always possible, but if I had my way that is where I would be right now!!

Wow. I don't think you're alone. For me, I feel like to top it all off, when Curtis comes home, he looks at all the things I haven't accomplished and gives me the look like, what have you been doing all day? (He's very gracious and doesn't really think that, I'm sure it's just my guilty conscience) But I've been having a pretty good week. I haven't had sugar in 6 days. I have gone exercising everyday for this whole month. I try to do the dishes every night before bed. I'm not trying to brag. But it got to the point were I didn't like what I saw in the mirror. I HAD to do something about it. It took (and is still taking) SOOO MUCH will-power, but it's really rewarding to get something done. When I finish a day where I've done nothing but eat and watch TV, I feel aweful. I got to the point where I didn't want to feel that way anymore. It's easy to do things that will make us happy, that's Satan's plan. I find it fascinating that the natural tendency in all of us, or the natural man, is the very thing that will make us unhappy. It takes me a long time to actually enjoy work and the fruits of my labors sometime. Whew... I've never shared any of this with anyone. I guess I just feel like I can with my Sis. Hang in there. I love you Very Very Much. Call me anytime.

My comment is going to differ a bit from the rest.... Embrace it. Enjoy it. Love it. (When reading Love it, you are supposed to draw it out really slowly like, Luuuvvv it.) This is coming from a homebody who loves a day so cold that it's impossible to do anything else but stay in! Enjoy that TV, maybe not the Power Rangers but the rest is not going to hurt you. It will pass soon and you'll be buzzing around like you always do. Love ya Heather!

Heather said...

Thanks Everyone! love you all. And I'm impressed that you all had very good suggestions.

I will try them out :) And if you can believe it I'm off to go running at the indoor track with a friend. Way to go me!

Heather you are so kind to offer a baby shower. Kurt's cousin is throwing one for me on Feb 7th at 1pm @ my house. I'm supposed to get the invites today, so I'll drop one by your house sometime soon. Thanks again for offering.
