Corner of Funk and Somewhere


I just can’t figure myself out.

I should be the happiest person in the world. I have a wonderful, loving husband, two sweet and beautiful boys, a home we can afford, a decent job, a generous and loving extended family… So why am I feeling so down? Why is my fuse so short? Why do I raise my voice? Why do I feel so empty sometimes? There’s no explanation – or at least no rational one I can find.
I want so much to be able to define this funk but I just feel so lost right now…

I hear you, I hear you, I hear you. I think I'm lost at the same intersection you are.

Wish you were closer. We could try to work it out over a bottle of wine.

It's the weather. I just know it.

I agree with carsick. I am craving a sunburn somethin' fierce. We all need a little sunshine.

It's called JANUARY - the longest, darkest, dankest most horrible month EVAR. Let's eat chocolate and drink till it's gone.

We call it "doublewide fever". If you think about all the things you do in the spring and summer, outdoors stuff, gardening, playing, you're bound to feel a little antsy when you are stuck inside most of the time.

I think it's the weather too. I heard some report that someone did a study and said that weather/seasons do not actually affect our mood. But, I think they are crazy. I don't know anyone who isn't affected by winter by the end. And, January is the worst month. No holidays, no excitement, just the mess and bills from Christmas. Hope you feel better soon.
