I have the Winter Blues. I am a sad sack. Ho-Hum-Hum-Drum. It usually happens around this time. The Holidays are over. The crappy weather has set in. No Spring in sight. The realization that the next Holiday isn’t until Memorial Day, in May, a long 5 months away. Nary a flea market to be found. You know it’s bad when even the fleas pack it in. No trips to Europe on the horizon because we are recovering from Holiday spending….and the dollar remains lower than Barry White’s voice. And my creative juices have escaped, took a long vacation, set sail to the Caribbean, without me I might add. Inspiration, a dirty word. Passion-shmashen. Like Austin Powers, I feel like I lost my Mojo, baby.
So what is a girl to do? How is one supposed to survive? How do you make it through to Spring, sane and smiling?
Some of the things I try to keep me going…
Scour Ebay for flea market deals
Drink more wine
Watch reruns of Frasier and Seinfeld
Redecorate the house (again)
Depending on how massive the redecorating is, I come up with a honey-do list for Chris (he’s thrilled at the notion)
Drink more wine
Enjoy a nightly hot chocolate, with a little nip perhaps
Try new recipes…and then eat them
Drink good wine
Work on a new blog design
Go skiing (just kidding, and you thought you really knew me)
Dine out with my girlfriends
Wine more drink, hiccup, I mean Drink more wine
Oh yeah, almost forgot, I also ogle over Johnny Depp in Sweeney Todd. There is nothing that man can’t do. Maybe he’d like to join me for a glass of good wine?
So, do you get the Winter Blues? How do you cope? Share some of your secrets…you may be able to help me from pulling my hair out. And from becoming an alcoholic. Seems like alot of wine drinking going on.
