It seems like alot of people I know are in what I call a ‘funk’ right now. And it’s not too surprising. I mean it’s the middle of winter, and here in East TN we’ve had an unusual amount of real cold and snowy weather. A couple of days it was so cold I could not even make myself sprint from the warmth of inside the house, across about 20 feet, to the warmth of the hot tub.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love my hot tub. People ask me if it helps with my Parkinson’s symptoms and all I can say is “It really helps while I am in there!” There is only one problem: I can’t stay in it 24/7!
There are lots of other contributing factors to the ’funk’ mode so many of us find ourselves in, such as…
~We may be having health issues or someone we know may be ill. I don’t know another time past when I know so many with seriously ill family members.
~The economy is in a major down-turn. We may have family members unemployed or know more friends having to deal with economic crises.
~As if those two are not enough…then the Tiger Woods thing happened….
~The Colts lost the Super Bowl, and I couldn’t make it to Kentucky to see Sherri while she was there….L .
But don’t give up my friends…just as the seasons cycle, so do there dreary times in our lives. Personally I am starting to feel some better because:
~My daughter’s basketball team won their regional championship and my so very talented and athletic daughter was MVP!
~The sun was out for 2 days in a row recently
~Girl Scout cookies just got here. I love those shortbread cookies and a cup of milk!
~Survivor is one with a new group and this time it is former players of “Heros’ vs. Villans”, plus college basketball NCAA tournament is coming up soon, and the winter Olympics are on TV as well.
And in the PD world, excitement is building for the Unity Walk in April and a fundraising climb with the Regulars up Mt. Washington in late July.
Let us know what is happening in your world that is helping you out of a ’funk’!
I’ve been looking through some old pictures and found this random set. You can view my eclectic group of pix in the slideshow:
And I’d be curious as to what traits you can see of me from them!!
