I've had several friends ask me how I'm doing with the "winter blues." I can honestly say, thank God, that I'm doing great. I was worried when we left all that wonderful sunlight in CA so I began taking a tablet of Vitamin D every day. I try and exercise every morning, and I've found that even though it's been raining almost daily, it's important for the girls and I to get out of the house so we go do story time at the library or go play at McDonalds or take yet another trip to Trader Joes. Anything to get a little fresh air and just maybe a glimpse of the sun.
Today Karly complained because the sun was "wrinkling her eyes." I guess that's what happens when you only see it a couple times a month.
The upside of these chilly, gray days is the cold, dark nights. I have a good excuse to start the fire and cuddle up with a good book, a hot mug of tea, and usually a kid or two who have decided that my bed is warmer than theirs.
