Hmmm....

Making deliberate efforts to avail myself of simple pleasures and healthy pursuits helps, but I'm still falling into grouch mode for hours each day. I find myself such unpleasant company, sometimes! What's going on here? Why am I so anxious and stressed out? Am I depressed?

It's 3 am and I cannot sleep. But life should look better in the morning. Meanwhile, I made some tea and English muffins and am going to do some writing.

Well, I do have some advantages over you guys I guess. Should count my blessings. Good health... and good weather. Even on Friday, the shortest day of the year and a storm predicted, we had a beautiful sunny morning. Even when the predicted snow moved in at about 1:00, it was light and fluffy and easy to drive in, stopped before midnight, and this morning was all sunny and pretty again.

But there's still something about Christmas that can strike us wrong. Stress over money or shopping or traffic or too many special events...and confronting one's unrealized hopes, unmet expectations.
