Still blue? Yep.

I've been trying to think of what to blog about, something fun, interesting, even controversial.

The best I can come up with is: Did everyone/anyone see the Kansas governor's response to Bush's State of the Union address? She kept talking to "Mr. President". This was nonsensical on two counts. One, he WASN'T watching. Two, if he accidently WAS, he DOESN'T CARE. He's done his time, made him and his friends their money and is on his way out. Why should he do anything that doesn't profit him and his own friends? He hasn't before now, and he isn't going to do anything in the last 300+ days left.

Fun? Interesting? I've got nothing. It's knit, clean, walk dog, diet. That's it. Do I need to get out? Probably, but the Husband is in one of his "Save Money" modes. I could run around, but would have to listen to the current "Save Money" lecture.

Maybe I'm just depressed because of the cold weather. We had a taste of warmth over the weekend and Monday. Today, it's worse than a deep freeze. I tried walking Lucky just the short walk and couldn't even do a fourth of it. The wind was blowing sleet into my face. It was horrible and poor Lucky didn't even get a chance to poo. My thoughts were, he can poo on his own time, I'm getting back in the house. Fry just checked and played with him for a good thirty minutes, so I know his house is warm. We turn up his heater as needed. Lucky and I did walk not only the long walk of 2.4 miles yesterday, but also added a good half mile to that. The weather was so nice, we had to!

I think a part of the depression is not losing weight despite eating out only once a week, if that, and exercising every day by walking a mile or two with the dog. This time, I'm logging every bite and every step, no matter how good or bad they are. It might make a difference in the outcome, it might not.

I'm so sorry you're depressed. As far as the disgust over dieting/exercise, let me tell you, I've had the same exact frustration. I think it's middle age hormones. Seriously! I've been meaning to blog about it, and maybe I will in the next few days.

It's the time of year, the lack of sun etc. And yeah, we're in a budget frame of mind right now too.

I agree with what Chelle said. In addition to normal depression it may be the weather and a lot of other factors. I don't know about you but I do suffer from SAD. That is why I always try to get out of the office at lunch and get some sun, if there is any.

Thanks, Chelle! It probably is middle age. My not exercising as much I probably should isn't helping. I'm trying not to be a whiny baby about it, but it's tough to be active when it's so cold outside. I need to just 'suck it up' and get out there.

Carol, yep, I'm SAD, too. I didn't realize how much until later that day when the sun came out. I try to time Lucky's walks for the sunniest part of the day. :)
