taking one day at a time. Only 6 more night shifts after this one and I am taking one of those off for medical reasons. I am looking forward to a time that I can sleep! I am also taking on the project of replacing my front porch. I have the lumber and I have the screws and I am starting it on Saturday. If help shows up I may even finish it on Saturday!!

Went in to see my boss after my shift ended at 0900 this morning. Let her know I just cannot do the night shift anymore. I asked for per diem. She is changing the shifts this month but it has not been announced yet. She accepted my request to go per diem and I gave one month notice. On the way home from work I got a call from the Roseburg, Oregon VA with 2 job offers. I have been sitting here all day trying to make a firm decision. I then picked up a voice mail on my home phone to call the clinic near my home. I got another job offer and the job is not even posted yet and I did not apply BUT it's 10 minutes from home. I think there are no more winter blues!

It's a new year I have made it 7 months at this night shift and the winter blues/blahs have not been the issue I have passed my clinical exam last week so now I will give notice at the night job and get some sleep before going forward to new horizons Maybe even sunshine!

No blues or blahs here yet.... too busy with life.... January is usually when I begin to get a little down... but just keep pushing through... I've found focusing on others is a GREAT fix.

Interestingly I haven't had the blues yet. I have noticed in the last few years I would drag around, but then I wasn't exercising. Now I am. I'm sure that's the diff.

It's not the destination, it's the journey. Make it worth the trip!

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Enjoy the endorphins!

I have continued to dance. The rain is not stopping and the bluff where I walk winter and summer has slid so the beach is now about 1/2 as wide with huge piles of trees and clay and rocks. It is still very unstable and more of it is sliding daily. We had to stop today when more started coming down.

What winter blues? I live in Texas! emoticon

Before you get too jealous, though, remember that the Texas summers can get unbearably hot and, in Houston, unbearably humid, too! So, while my walks outside right now are positively delightful, it won't be long before a wall of heat & humidity slams me in the face every time I step outside the door!

I am dancing through the winter. I am starting 2 more classes, possibly 3, on the 24th of this month. That means I am taking classes or workshops 3 or 4 days a week plus zumba once a week.

The warm weather and rain in the mountains messed up my goal of getting back into skiing. I have taken up dancing lessons and I hike rain or shine. I get to the gym on a regular basis and plan sunny vacations which gives me incentive to get back in shape again for my bathing suit and diving this spring!

I used to go to water aerobics but got bored. I found out that it was the instructor. One day I went in a day that was not my regular time and there was a different instructor. He really worked us. See if the aerobics is offered any other time under a different instructor. emoticon

Wow! So many positive comments! I must say that I agree with several of them. I,too, enjoy the changing seasons and try to appreciate the beauty of each. However, this part of winter has been unusually cold, windy and wet. I speak the truth when I say, "That's not attractive weather!" Right now, though, the sun is shining and the sky is blue which makes me feel SO much better...

Judith, I used to go to the YMCA. The monthly fee is not too bad. However, since we moved in 2007, I have to travel farther to get there. So, I "unjoined" and started doing Spark People. I do miss it, and often think of going back. But right now, I'd rather have more time to work out and not so much time driving.

This is probably WAY MORE than any of you wanted to know! I'll just enjoy the warmth of your comments and stop complaining. emoticon

In California we don't really have the winter blues, even when it rains for a week. However, my biggest problems is trying to drink my protein drink in the morning (as suggested by my doctor) when it is 55 degrees outside. Other than that, I'm handling it pretty well.

I prefer the winter but down here, we don't have the snow blizzards that are in the north. So I am able to keep doing pretty much the same.

Is there a local city rec center you can use? I know mine is only $40 for the year. And they offer all kinds of programs and even personal trainers.

I know I'm having some trouble getting back into Spark mode. I get started on an exercise or a realistic eating plan only to sabotage myself. I need some help here friends!
