When you add in all of the rain and gloom it doesn't make people very happy.
It has caused me to feel very discontented.
Spring is normally my favorite time of year. I love seeing the trees bloom and green popping out everywhere. I love the feel of sunshine and warm breezes on my face. I love shedding winter clothes and putting on sandals for the first time in months.
This year that has not happened. Instead, every time I try to pack away my winter clothes the temps once again take a dive downwards.
I am trying to take on the attitude of.
I am trying hard to be positive about where I am living, but to be honest it is difficult. My family is 400 miles away and I am missing out on watching my grandchildren grow up.
It will be another three years until I can get into the apartment I have signed up for. By then my oldest grandchild will be leaving for college.
I think I need an infusion of childhood smiles, of playing, and giggling for no reason at all.
I think I need to plan a road trip south next month.
