I'm looking out my window at a winter wonderland and I'm just not feeling the joy that usually comes from such a beautiful sight. This has been one snowy winter to say the least. The ground still has over a foot from the last blizzard and we're supposed to get another 12 to 18 inches. OK, so I do love to play in the snow and sledding with the kids is a blast. I keep telling myself that shoveling the white stuff burns significant calories and that's a plus. But I am so freakin' sick of my treadmill! I miss the trails. I miss my feet on terra firma. I miss the fresh air, the streams, the flora & the fauna. The roads even suck since there is no shoulder on them, just snow banks. I think I'm getting that winter thing...what's it called? SAD? Seasonal Affective Disorder? SNOW Affective Disorder. I need sun. I'm whining. I feel cranky. And what really sucks is that when this melts, it's going to be a squishy, muddy mess. *sigh* OK, let me go grab my sneakers and get my butt on the treadmill. Phew, glad I got that off my chest! If anybody reads this, sorry for the negative energy!
