The Long Winter

Currently, there is 8 inches, give or take a little each way,  of snow on the ground here where I live.  We are on our second snow day, with school already canceled for tomorrow. The snow is not even the worst of it. It IS COLD.

Sometimes I feel bad about whining, because we have been so desperate for moisture.

But winter has always been really hard for me.  And this one has been especially.

 I am so sick of it.

I'm tired of feeling trapped in my house. I'm tired of darkness, and how the cold hurts my bones when I'm out in it.

I'm ready for a new season.

Spring brings hope.
And warmth.
And dirt on my fingernails.

Spring....Let's do this!
