Longing....


This is an old photo of my patio shortly after we moved into our current home. Sad to say, it isn't this pretty anymore. However, I am longing for spring time... I am ready to get outside and enjoy the patio and make it pretty again. It's winter time now, and as usual, I am in my mid winter depression. This year it is so bad, it took me back to the doctor this week. Medication changes have been made and I'm looking forward to feeling like ME again!!! Number one on my mind is trying to get some things done: Motto: If you do stuff, stuff gets done. I'm off work all next week and I hope to get some stuff done. From cleaning, to organizing, to sewing, etc. My biggest distraction right now is this computer. I don't spend too much time on blogs, but I can't seem to pull myself away from facebook. You know, trying to keep up with family and friends. I've decided this is actually contributing to my anxiety and I think it's time to let it go. Have any of you had to let something go in order to get your sanity back? I would like to hear about it. Longing.... and looking forward to next week! :o)

I sure know what you mean about the winter blues. I've been contemplating a call to the doc myself. Why does it seem so bad this year? And as for the computer, I know what you mean there, too. Only my nemesis are those darn face book games or any online game, for that matter. Just at the end of last week I deleted them all so I could break away! You can't delete family and friends, though! Hope you find a method to manage them all!

Maybe you should delete the people that urk your nerves. ...and keep the family and close friends around. Its good to purge your friends list once in a while. :o) Love you

I finally deleted all the games, but I still visit facebook all the time. I've purged my friends list. I know all my mafia people wonder where I am... ha ha. Love you!!

I don't do the games..blogs are my weakness. I love finding links from like-minded people..then another ..then another..and soon, it's like WAY LATE! I need to focus..{my word for the year} so I am not letting myself buy another book until I finish the one I'm reading..not purchasing any more craft supplies until I actually CRAFT something.. and, keep remembering "Spring is around the corner"! I have a little book that I am writing quotes as I find them..and I've just included your "if you do stuff, stuff gets done" :-) so thanks..

You guys down south are a little luckier than us as your spring comes much earlier than ours in NH. I hate winter. I've been doing good and getting out more this winter for walks, even if it is freezing cold and I think that has helped my attitude greatly. But I still hate winter.

I don't do facebook must at all anymore but I do spend a lot of time here on blogs. Actually I spend anywhere from six to eight hours a day here. It is getting to me, I actually started clenching my teeth. I get so stressed because I want so badly to read so many blogs. I can't just drop these people who I have become friends with. I know if I turn it off and actually do something else I feel a lot better. I don't have an answer for me yet. I feel so dedicated to blogging. I also have let my housework slip and I don't feel like I'm living my life to its fullest. However saying that I also know that blogging has brought so much joy to my life. I just need to find balance.

Hi penny,
I gave up Facebook too. I have also limited my computer time. I wrote a post today for you.:)
Cheer up Spring is coming.
Hugs,
