February Blues

While I would love for this post to be about the color blue and somehow using it in February, it’s not. I’ve got serious case of the February blues. I didn’t even realize that’s what it was until this morning when I ws trying to figure out why I was so gloomy and then I realized what month it is. I’ve had some people tell me that they start getting more depressed in the fall when things die or they have SAD and the whole winter causes them to be, well, sad. Anyway, I don’t have those problems. I love fall, it’s one of my favorite times of year and winter (December and January) are so busy that I don’t have time to think. No, my issue is with February. And I know my issue is with February. Every year I know it’s coming and I usually try to safeguard against exactly this, by planning extra fun things and giving myself stuff to do and look forward to. I forgot to do that this year. Not only that, but this month has pretty much been terrible for our little family and I’m just done. Being pregnant doesn’t help either, since I’m so much more tired and I can’t seem to want to do anything. Last night I had a dream that no one wanted to help me or be around me and that is just not helpful either…

February so far has included:

Overflowing toilets (technically the end of January, but it counts)
Truck trouble
Car trouble
Me running into a light pole with th car and messing up the door we just fixed
over a foot of snow and terribly cold temps
Children not listening
Me being pregnant, tired and feeling miserable
Vomiting – I hate that!
One function that would have made me a little happier being postponed
Feeling unloved and alone
Toilet not working today and I have no idea how to make it work

So, sorry to complain, but I just can’t be happy all the time. Isn’t the saying, “if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”? Well, it’s pretty true here right now and I am not feeling the happy…could use a little extra love.

Alright, I’m done – hope any readers I have are not feeling the February blues and that you have a blessed day!
