Avoiding the "Tilt & Nod"

I just spent 30 minutes composing a post about how I've been feeling the last two weeks, but deleted it. I just can't find the right words, and it would have depressed anyone who read it. And, I definitely would have gotten the "sympathetic head tilt and nod" the next I saw you. I hate the tilt and nod.

In short, I feel like winter is sitting on my chest and bouncing up and down in an effort to knock the wind out of me. Spring cannot come too quickly.

Instead of depressing you further, I'll share this little gem from after we took Jack sledding shortly after Christmas. It's the ultimate in hat hair.

Just today I was speaking to a friend of mine and told her of some of the specific challenges ha I am dealing with right now... She was upset that I hadn't told her sooner. I said "oh please... I can't handle people feeling sorry for me."

In other words... I TOTALLY get your post!

Hang in there!

I understand, too... In fact, that is part of the reason I have not blogged much in the past year. I either 1) can't talk about things that are going on, or 2) don't know how and don't want to sound depressed all the time.

LOVE the picture!
