............feelings of depression set in. I must put away my Christmas decor and trees this weekend. That always gives me a down feeling. My daughter is back to TX with no formal plans to see her until May. So nothing special to excite me.
I also get down when the weather is gloomy and cold. And it is, here in southwest Missouri. It has been for a few days. I know. I know. My sister (in NH) says sun's been hiding for weeks there. And low temperature of 10 with high of 30 is not cold to my friend in AK who was excited when thermometer reached +7.
Other family circumstances seemingly have declined in the past couple of weeks. Mostly things I cannot change or control, regardless of how I try.
So now, I am in a funk. Feeling sad and depressed. Only want to sit at home in front of the television.
I know this will pass. But not as quickly as it has set in.
