I woke up to a light layer of snow today and the living room freezing because my youngest left the balcony door open a bit last night.

She likes to sleep in the living room because she gets overheated in her room, or so she says, and she likes to freeze us out.

Speaking of her, her 12th birthday is this week which is super crazy.

I can’t believe that we are here again and the holidays passed this quickly.

At least after the winter solstice, it starts to get lighter a bit earlier every day again because I feel like I have been living in perpetual gloom since we turned the clocks back.

It has literally never bothered me before. It never used to affect my kids when they were young, but it really has taken its toll on me this year for some reason.

There is someone that I follow on Instagram who lives in Svalbard Sweden, and she gets polar nights for 4 months a year which means it is as dark as night 24 hours a day for months.

It is pretty and her life and home look cozy, but I don’t know if I could handle it. It is a good account to follow because it is so different and interesting.

I also neglected to take the cushions off of the balcony chairs before the snow fell, so that sucks. I just hope it melts, and they dry, so I can store them away until spring.

I’m also not sure why I seem to consistently place Instacart orders on Sundays because they are always out of groceries by then.

That just means I will have to go out tomorrow and pick up everything that they missed tomorrow.

Apparently, I never learn.

  1. totally get how you feel during the time change!!! I despise the winter, hate the rain, live in the Bay Area and really prefer sunny warm beaches 24/7/365
    this year I went on low dose of Wellbutrin – I am 54 and I’ve tried e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. to offset my seasonal disorder – its been a game changer for sure, very positive
    hang in there, find what works for you!
    love your style and really look forward to your what I wore posts!!!

    • Thank you for this. I’m hoping that things start to reset themselves after all the Christmas stress starts to wind down. Everything just seemed extra hard and stressful this year. I’m sure it doesn’t help that my sleep schedule is completely out of sync and I can’t seem to get to bed earlier no matter how hard I try. I appreciate you taking the time to comment about this. It’s nice to know I’m not alone. Happy Holidays ❤️
