Winter Sucks

Winters up here are never, ever easy.  They're long and cold and dark.  I usually manage to survive without too much trouble.

This year is different.

I don't know why, but the past few weeks have just kicked my butt.  It started with getting the flu a few days after I got back from my trip.  I'd gotten my flu shot in October, but I guess this strain wasn't part of the shot.  And it really knocked me out of commission.  I woke up that Thursday with a sore throat and stuffy head, but I still went to work that day.  I made it through the day, but came straight home and crawled right into bed.  I stayed home the entire next four days except for one quick trip to the store to get orange juice and cough drops.  I was really miserable for those few days.

I mostly recovered quicker than I expected, considering how badly I felt.  But I still feel rather run down.  Like I just can't get any energy.  Ugh.

The weather has been crappy.  It's just cold and snowy.  I hate shoveling and I keep having to do it.  We're slowly getting more daylight, but it's still dark a lot of the time.

I just feel blah a lot of the time.  I don't know why this year is worse.  Harder.

It's funny that you ask. We called it off for a while, but we're all getting together next week! I'm really looking forward to it!
