This weather, guys. It is seriously getting me down.

It is so that time of the year.

I can't tell you how many of my friends have been going through bouts of sadness or fatigue.  My relatives keep talking about moving to warmer climates.  And all I personally want to do is sit on my couch in my snuggie - snacking and watching Netflix.

It's too far past Christmas to continue to revel in the holiday glow.  It's too far away from spring to get excited about the warmer weather to come.  And at this point in our lives - there is no pending spring break vacation to dream about.  Just dark, dreary, cold, weather.

And snow.  Lots of snow.

It's tough though, because at this age - it's hard to do anything with the kids.  Little Man wants to go everywhere and do everything, but Little Lady can stand and somewhat walk only.  Put her outside in ice and snow, and she's definitely not sturdy.  To actually play outside, I wear her while I'm playing with Little Man.  But even to get to that point it takes about 45 minutes of potty breaks, diaper changes, coats, shoes, hats, gloves, boots, and scarves - only to turn right around and take everything off less than an hour later.

And that's just playing.  Going anywhere is a huge pain right now as well.  It's just such a whole boat of crazy running errands around town - getting everyone bundled up, out, around, un-bundled, buckled, and onto the next.

Most days when I wake up and grab a tea, I stare out of our windows and think,

Hmmmm.  Not so much.

The past few years have been easier on me because we've been, well - occupied.  Basically for the past four years we've either been actively trying to get pregnant around this time {lol, you know just to put it all out there} or snuggled up at home with brand new babies and a perfect excuse not to be traipsing around town.  But this year we have neither of those excuses and still a whole lot of not leaving the house.

We've added a few more outings and playdates each week to force me to take the kids out of the house, but otherwise - if you need us... we'll just be snuggling on the couch.

  1. Also in the past, it hasn't been THIS cold!! Ugh...I'm definitely moving, DH is actually looking for jobs...I can't do it. DDs are outdoor kind of girls and we go to the playground above 32*. Safe to say before this winter, there has only been a few days we've actually stayed inside our place!!

  2. I totally get this!!! That's how I feel at this time ever year. I've grown up in the same province and each year around January/February I vow to move away from here before the next winter . . . but it never seems to happen!

  3. I am hating this weather too, and kind of going insane. We've been super sick too, so that hasn't helped at all. Cold or not, I opened the windows for an hour or so on Sunday and the fresh air was ... refreshing. It was kinda like being outside, but not. UGH SPRING!
