The lion is here... now we wait

I don't think I'm any different than anyone else I've spoken to over the last few months.  This particular winter has been harsh, difficult, tiring and draining.  I have the winter doldrums the same as the next person.

I started to feel a twinge of it begin to dissolve last Friday, since it was the end of February.  As mundane as it sounds, the weekend began March in a positive way - get haircut, come home and do laundry, get a solid night's sleep, take the car for a wash and vaccuming, get groceries - be home before 11 a.m. and then do "pre-spring" cleaning (which equals clothes purge) and then write, winding up with no less than 5 reviews, one for each day of the week.  The work week wasn't as fruitful - just go to work and come home exhausted - but at least laundry is done and I'm about to head out for groceries.  Tonight is dinner and a show; tomorrow will be more writing - maybe I'll go to the gym if I'm up early enough.

Again, it's these little things that help push me along.  The more I see items ticked off my list of things I want/need/should do, the better headspace it puts me in.  And positive is the only way to think.
