I'm ready for spring now.
I am quite impressed that it's taken until the end of February for the winter blahs to set in. It seems I usually have them by mid-January. But I haven't been in hibernation yet this year, until maybe today. (By the way, Chloe made it through the dentist, but it took all she had and she needed to come home and sleep instead of try to go to school like she was hoping. She did have to go to a faculty meeting with Joel while I taught my lessons, but I was able to postpone my preschool volunteer hours to tomorrow and the branch canceled Visiting Teaching Conference tonight. Too many sick kids, not enough people coming. And, if you only have 9 or so sisters coming in the first place, and only 4 or 5 drop out, it's not worth having. So my schedule is much lighter than I thought earlier. Thank goodness.)
Wow, that was quite the parenthetical digression.
Anyway, I think my lack of the doldrums (until now) may have something to do with having two major concert preparations back-to-back. Messiah in December and this last one. Kept my mind off all the cold and the snow and the lack of daylight.
But I'm ready for spring now.
Unfortunately, spring isn't coming anytime soon. When I drove past the baseball fields today and saw that the chain link fences were only a foot high, I realized that I have a good while left to enjoy the snow. Or suffer through the snow. Or endure the snow. But I might as well try to enjoy it.
I tell you though, I'd enjoy it all much more if it were only 70 degrees out at the same time!
