I am still alive

I am still alive...the past week or so has been one of slipping, sliding, shoveling and freezing. Next week on tap is below way too cold wind chills.

This time of year is the worst, but not much to do but carry on.

I remember winters in the 1980's that had wind chills of -60. Cars froze and would not start, it was a battle to keep your home warm. Hopefully this cold snap won't last too long.

The winter always makes me feel a little blue. Popping some B vitamins is helping. The family joined the fitness center and a few miles on the treadmill deals with me and my wandering mind.

Oh and candy cane Hersey's kisses they are my best friend...

My stepson left, finally, he's back with the enablers who have helped him stay immature, jobless, broke and stupid.

So I am down to one kid...weird....I wonder how long that will last??!!

I'll be wandering around to a blog near you soon...

SO glad that you are down to one kid...enjoy the silence. Ohio is getting slammed with that ice and sleet daily it seems too.
I love you,

We just had about 8inches of snow dropped on top of the ice here in NY. I use these cold months to sit back with a cup of tea and catch up on so long overdue reading.

It's always like that isn't it, they seem to always find someone to support the ugliness within them. Your in my thoughts dear one. (Hugs)Indigo

It seems like all we are getting is either snow or ice here. I think it's going to be a very long winter. It feels that way already.
Enjoy the peace and quiet while you have it.

I know exactly how you feel. This winter has been tougher on me than any I can ever remember, and I feel something just about every year.

Spring can't come soon enough!
