The Flu. Coming To A Person Near You.

Well, it’s been one of those weeks for me. I’ve been running around like a dog chasing his tail, scrambling to find time for just about everything, including this blog! So, I’m sacrificing the gym tonight to write; don’t tell my trainer!

This past week found me on my annual Valentine’s road trip to my parents’ house with my kids. Just imagine little-old-me trapped for ten hours in the car braving the wilds of the highway with a toddler and baby in tow all alone with no help, Yikes!  It was an adventure to say the least, including crying and screaming and ten rounds of my daughter’s Christmas music CD that she begged to listen to.

It’s no wonder some people suffer with seasonal depression during the winter months. Winter can be kind of depressing especially when one is cooped-up with children who are bundles of energy. I’ve probably already been suffering from cabin fever since August; the winter months will just be an extension of the already long “maternity leave.”
