It happens every year around this time, and it's rather unfortunate. I am an optimist and feeling deep down blue feels unnatural for me. I've been feeling depressed lately and it's getting old real fast. I am sluggish and moody. Food doesn't taste as good, I overeat anyway. I count down until bedtime and drag myself out of bed in the morning. I have no energy to clean, no energy to shop, but don't want to sit home as I go stir crazy. Winter blues are real and they affect me every year. Bummer, bums me out, bummed about it, bum...bum...bum!
