  1. I am way beyond the “winter blues”. I am in a deep and serious funk right now thanks in large part to the ridiculous amount of snow on the ground and the extreme cold blast we are enduring.
  2. Temps in the 30’s today…and that will be the last time for awhile as we are heading into a deep freeze with more bitter cold for about the next week and a half…yay .
  3. Struggling today. Didn’t sleep all that well and I continue to not be busy enough at my job. Work coming in has been less than usual of late and even moreso with the holiday this week. I have to stretch the work I do have out for much longer than I should and that isn’t a good feeling and makes the already long days feel even longer.
  4. I live among their fanbase…and lets just say, they are uh, extremely loyal and passionate…as in throwing themselves into card tables for fun. Ans sitting for hours in 6 degree weather to watch them play. Not my thing at all but Buffalo is a super depressing place (and covered in deep snow at the moment) so if it helps the morale of others…than so be it.
  5. Nearly 2 feet of snow in about 24 hours. And it is windy blowing the snow around so some of the snow drifts are even higher.
  6. It seems for once they were correct (at least in my area) on the severity of this storm. Last I heard the total was around 20 inches. And looks like it will stick around for awhile. Maybe we will see the grass in tge backyard again by Easter time???
  7. 81 degrees year round… !!! It only gets that warm in July and August here…perhaps a few scattered days in June and September as well. But the weather here sucks for most of the time…including today. There’s close to 2 feet of snow on the ground right now…all in the last 24 hours as well.
  8. Well after speaking with my therapist, I am feeling a bit better about things as I head out of town for the weekend. Still not sure how it will go but I will try my best. There is nothing I can do about the storm that is coming in a few days and I have to force myself to remember that. It is going to suck but it is Janaury and winter…so of course there will be snow. And my location is far from the only one who will be impacted by it.
  9. Not doing well today. Have a lot on my mind and have been holding it in but today is my therapy day so at least I can get some off it out there.
  10. I think today is the last “decent” day for awhile with normal temps. Starting tomorrow, bitter cold is returning. There is a uh, rather large outdoor event happening here this weekend and it is supposed to be beyond bitter cold. I don’t care either way but you could not pay me enough money to be outside for hours in single digit temps with negative wind chills. Plus, the annoying weather folk are already teasing a “monster storm” that might be coming.
  11. Ugh…today is really bad, this week has been really bad. I think I don’t have a choice at this pont…I have to find a different space in the house to work. It won’t solve all my problems but I think it will refresh me some and maybe motivate me a bit more. My bedroom is just too cold, lonely and depressing. As bad as I have been of late…I am not at all behind, in fact I am pretty caught up. Because the workload coming in of late has been less than usual. I don’t have enough to do most days and have to stretch out the work I do have for as long as possible. Not a great feeling and it makes the already long days go by even slower.
  12. Thanks. I think part of it was I was certain the event would be cancelled and I guess it still can at the last minute but she has been actively promoting it on her social media. Also, driving anywhere (especially in these parts) is risky but the weather appears to be okay and the drive a few hours and one we have done many times before. Gonna talk about it with my therapist also as he knows how much I enjoy going to this place.
  13. I used to take pride in my work and be extra cautious. Now….meh. I do the bare minimum required of me and I came across a error…which was clearly an careless not paying attention type of error…and I really wasn’t bothered by it. I fixed it of course but in the past, that would have been the type of thing I dwelled on for a good while.
  14. Really miserable….winter doldrums got me down. Here is how I know I am not doing well. Have plans this weekend visiting my favorite city…going to an event plus shopping and not really looking forward to it at all.
  15. Spot on. And things seem to be getting worse by the day. And not just national politics….happens here in my community as well. The guy is charge here…I will be nice and just say…I’m not a fan.
  16. My head is a total mess right now….so much going on and now something else has been thrown into the mix to make things even worse. I haven’t been doing well to begin with and I fear things are about to get much worse. I have little support and I know I continue to be judged on a regular basis. My therapist always tells me to reach out to him in between appointments if I need to. Looks like I might just have to do that. Even just talking with him for 10 or 15 minutes would help some.
  17. Well at least it is sunny. But it is cold, very cold. And the snow looks like it will be sticking around for awhile. I see next week bitter cold…single digits/teens temps are in our future..yay!
  18. Wasn’t a great week for me either. My seasonal affective depression has really kicked in now with the recent snow event. Plus, the really cold temps are sticking around for awhile with little moderation. I am so bad with this that I keep my blinds closed and work in minimal light during the day so I do not have to look at the snow outside my window. And work…it has been issue after issue of late and it takes 2 or more emails usually for my boss to respond. Frustrating!
  19. Coffee, TV and movies from the 50’s/60’s, outlet malls, warm nights in the summer, the beach!
