A Whine!

I am cold...I have been for several days. I am tired of being chilly and I am letting myself complain. I don't have spring fever per se, I am just tired of feeling cold! The past week has been a little warmer outside (lower 30s) as compared to some very cold weather earlier this winter. We are still walking our dog for 30 mins or so each night...and we really bundle up. That doesn't really bother me because I wear sooo many warm layers. I'm just cold in my house. About 10 days ago our whimpy space heater that sat not too far from me started dripping oil. We didn't think that it was all that powerful in the first place, but I have been SOOO chilly since then. You'd think that with all my Wii-Fitting that I'd be warm. Maybe I'm losing some of my blubber layer and I just can't stay warm.

OK...I'll get over my frigid self, put on an extra sweatshirt, and shut-up now!

Do you think I'll warm up if I give this blog a bright & cheery new look?

  1. Bella is sending loads of sunshine, and warmth your way


  2. I'm tired of being cold. I'm tired of looking out my window to see nothing but GRAY. I'm tired of breathing in the same air because I can't open my kids getting nose bleeds from the dry air...

    Then yesterday I heard there was a tent city on the shores of the Mississippi river, here in St. Louis. A friend of mine, who is doing construction in that area walked over to the tents to see what it was all about and learned that it was a city of families that have lost their jobs and their homes. I am haunted by this vision and can only imagine how cold they must be. I can turn up my thermostat. All they have are some cold, wet logs in which to try and get a fired started. I will count my blessings and wait for the day that I can open my window. :)


    I've been warming up some corn bags and throwing them at the foot of my bed at night. Its helps.

  3. I know how you feel! I dread the windy days when I feel the drafts through the windows...brrr! Not too much longer and we'll have warmer days. Hang in there! :-)

  4. Oh Robin...that makes me sooo sad. At first, I was sure you were going to talk about Haiti, then you said this was in our very own city. Of course I know there are homeless in our city, I drive by them every single day. What can we do? I hate letting fear stop me from reaching out to these people, sitting on the corners - begging for money, but it does.

    Diana...I think everyone is right there with you. Just remember...February should be the end of this ENDLESS cold. March will start to have some nicer days and then...spring! Speaking of...will you and Dori be visiting again sometime this spring? You are MORE than welcome!

  5. Hope you're feeling better soon. My partner got knocked on her butt on Saturday. It came on all of a sudden. Very bad upper respiratory infection. I've been doing everything I can to not catch it. I've been Lysoling all the door knobs, light switches, my computer and mouse (my partner uses it too) and I slept on the couch for 4 nights. Guess what? I still caught it. I feel like crapola today. When she was sick I made her OJ smoothies, chicken soup. Guess what I get? Nuttin'.
