The Winter Blues
I used to love skiing, sledding, playing in the snow and yes those occasional snow days of being buried in snow. But, I am a grown up now and I don’t appreciate all the snow like I did when I was a child. I hate bundling up in coats and gloves. I hate having to wear a coat period. I have to drive in it and you can no longer throw on your shoes and walk out the door. You have to start your car and let it warm up. After December, Mother Nature can keep the snow. I don’t want it. My daughter always says, "Ahhh... it's so pretty outside." I say "No, it's not. All the flowers and trees are dead. It's ugly outside." I would much rather look at the window and see the green trees and pretty flowers. Not piles of white fluffy stuff and dead treas.
