Maybe it's not so much the weather that's affecting us. Maybe mousy quiet January is just the unfortunate month that immediately follows hyper-supped up, roid-induced jingle bells Crazy Town Holiday Hoopla month of December. I mean we get bombarded starting in August, and things ramp up second week of November and go full tilt through December 31st.
Then, all of a sudden - nothing. It all goes quiet.
In the quiet below zero, dark days of the Midwestern New Year, I start to think about what I want to accomplish ...and then get completely intimidated and overwhelmed with all that I want to do, and frankly, January is the PERFECT excuse to just go to bed. That's it. Stop the presses. I'm going to cover my head with a blanket and wish everything would just go away.
I hate when I get in these moods because I have so much to do. So much to plan! So much paint to play with!
I'm glad it's nearly over. I'm glad that red and white full of hearts February is right around the corner. And then after that March, which is foreplay to Spring. And then Spring!!
Not that I'm a hater of January, but I'm never very sorry to see it go each year.
How do you fare in January? What do you do to overcome the January Blues?
