The winter funk

I am in a funk. So much so, that I haven’t even been compelled to write anything lately.

…and for me, that is rare.

Every January, February, and early March, I find myself here. I don’t know if it is lack of sunshine, an abundance of illness, or just the everyday blah of cold weather and dark nights.

What I do know? 

I. Am. Tired.

So totally tired.

Lately, I have been okay with just not thinking or analyzing my situation and feelings. To be truthful, I feel so exhausted each day that I no longer have the energy to ruminate and over-process every little thing.

The days are going by in such a blur, I feel like I am really only able to get the essential things done, come home, go to bed, get up, and start over again. It is the reality of the working mom.

I am continuing with therapy. I am continuing to read Daughter Detox. I just haven’t had the energy lately to do much about any of it.

It isn’t really a good or bad thing.

It is just a tired thing.

I am in a funk.

I am ready for spring.

…and a really long nap.

    When I wintered in Wyoming (3 years), I took multiple hot showers to stay warm and wash away the blues. Use soap that smells good.

    This is how I have been feeling lately, except that I have been oversharing on my blog.

      I feel like my blog is the best place to overshare— ;). Hugs. Hope you find a way out of the funk.
