Wish I Could

Post that is, but right now I’m in the middle of my post holiday slump.  It’s been gray and wet here for two weeks straight, which has made me a slow mover.  I should be posting on light boxes for those with Seasonal Affective Disorder.  But right now I’m in the middle of getting Christmas put away.  John helped me take the tree down last Saturday so its out, but my ornament boxes and little Fir needles are everywhere (even on the kitchen sink backsplash!).  I’m seriously considering limiting any future holiday decorating (beyond the tree) to wreaths and fresh and artificial greenery.  That way I just have to put the wreaths and faux green away and walk around with a trash bag for the real stuff.  Still planning a mid-winter look.  Have a few things in mind.  No hurry though.  Spring won’t be here before I know it.  Waaah!

    In the words of the gifted song writer, David Soul, “Don’t give up on us baby. We’re still worth one more try.”
    Don’t give up Troy. Just dive head first into your decorating. Its pulled you out of the slumps before, it can work again.

    I’m sorry it’s so gray and wet there. I wish you could have stayed in Arkansas longer! I think of you every time I see sun and wish I could send it your way.

    I have a lightbox for SAD. It does help—nothing miraculous, but it does feel a little bit like spending time in sunlight.

    That said, one of the reasons I don’t decorate for the holidays—aside from having two playful and mischievous cats—is that I would be too lazy to ever take it back down.

    Winter is too long and depressive. I long for hot humid summertime..until it arrives anyhow. I hate cleaning up holiday mess. I miss it when its gone though.

    i drink lots of hot things and just pace the floorboards, wishing for a breath of warm air and sunshine.

    let’s go tanning.

    You and I have the same problem, baby. The tree came down on January 1, and a week and a half later the Shiny-Brite bulbs are still in the middle of the living room floor. I am going to call it my 2008 art installation and apply to the Arts Council for a grant.
