A case of the blahs

It cannot be denied… I have a major case of the blahs. And now I’m going to briefly complain about it:

There’s a tyrant in the White House. His cronies are as bad or, in some cases, worse than him. Everything just feels very dark right now…

I’m doing a particularly horrible job balancing Life Things. Work…around the house items…social life…hobbies…I just can’t seem to strike a healthy balance right now, which leads me to feel overwhelmed approximately 99% of the time. (I’m working on it, though!)

The winter has been warmer than normal, which would be fine except for the fact that the warmer temperatures = SO MUCH RAIN and not much snow. Everything is just gray and mushy.

My reading game is a bit off. I usually charge into January plowing through books, but I haven’t hit my stride yet. My reading game being off = I feel off.

I keep getting little colds. One cold will clear up, I’ll feel good for a few days, and then another settles in. Come on, immune system!

There are, thankfully, a few rays of sun peeking out from the clouds:

As of TODAY all 7 seasons of The Golden Girls are on hulu. Granted, I have all 7 seasons on DVD, but that’s beside the point. Now, I can seamlessly hop between seasons based on what kind of hairstyle I feel like seeing on Dorothy. Amazing!

Yoga is still good! I’m going 1-2 times each week and I always walk out of class feeling calmer and less tense.

Also, I hopped on my bike 3 times last week. I didn’t want to believe Josh when he told me something so small as my slightly more than 1 mile commute to work would make a difference in how I’m feeling, but he was right. At this point I really should know: biking makes life better.

Most weekends Josh and I are able to hike or do some kind of outdoor activity, and that’s always one of my brightest spots of the week.

Citrus. Is this lame to include? It’s citrus season, and I’m eating all the grapefruits and blood oranges. So delicious!

Well… that about covers it. I’m just gonna keep on keepin’ on (and I hope you do, too!).
