Yep, It's January.

Winter's got me. I'm in full recluse mode, not making any effort worth mentioning to interact with my family or friends. My motivation to do anything has gone out the window and I don't have any projects started or being worked on, haven't made appointments I need to make, and the housework is falling behind. I just don't want to do anything. I haven't seen the sun shine in what feels like weeks and it's driving me bonkers, in a very low-key, unimpressive way.

(I want to say that it feels like this part of the world has fallen under the control of the Twilight Realm but I think that if I make one more comparison between real life and the video game I'm playing my husband might stop speaking to me!)

So, this is just me whining, except I don't even feel inspired to complain about the various things in my life that aren't going very well, so it's just a general mope. I guess I feel depressed but the way I feel now isn't even comparable to how I felt this time three years ago so I don't want to call it that. At least I don't feel like life is agonizing. At least my mind isn't choked with nameless dread. This is just the "winter blues"... feels more like it should be called the "winter greys" though.

I can't wait til Spring.

If only I could figure out how to package up a box of sunshine. I'd totally send it your way!

The wife and I feel the same. We're blaming the weather, too.

I think it's a nation-wide trend. Some friends and I were just discussing this today, and were deciding it was either a) the weather, b) something in the air, or c) all of the above.

I like the term "winter recluse mode". Encapsulates it perfectly.

I'm feeling ya, oh how I'm feeling ya. Surprising since we both have those little rays of sunshine following us around.
