The Winter Blues

winterWe are so ready for winter to be over.  It’s been a long, cold, and snowy one this year.  I’ve gained around 7 pounds of weight, and have been very inactive.  Bleah.  Hopefully things will warm up soon.  Work is still really slow.  Thanks to the credit crunch, dealers are still having trouble getting financing for their boat orders.  The future is very dim right now.  Nothing is breaking loose like we hoped it would after the inaguration.  Honestly, things have gotten worse in the economy since then, not better, and the spendthrifts in Congress are only hurting us all long term by driving the national debt to unsustainable and possibly insolvent levels.  The level of angst in our area has been especially high.  More boat companies have laid of worker, more RV companies as well, and our suppliers are even working part time.  I’ve had two weeks of layoff time since January, and am still fighting to get unemployment for one of those weeks.  I’m thankful for it, but wish it wasn’t so complicated to get.  And the government wants to run the health care system as well?  Not a good idea…

Our house still hasn’t sold.  We haven’t had many showings the last few weeks.  This is a good thing, since we’re still not sure what we want to buy since the layoffs/company wide salary cuts.  So that’s a blessing in disguise for right now.  God may be protecting us from getting into something too inflated in price.  We do need to move though, our house is too small.

We need warm weather, the ability to go out and enjoy it, and I think the winter blues will pass.
