Ok, Internet, I don’t know about you, but I am experiencing some SERIOUS cabin fever up in here. This winter has been SO COLD. In Chicago we just got over our third POLAR VORTEX and I am just DONE. I am so cold and all I want to do is go outside and walk around and ride my bike (which is WEIRD for me, because in general I am not a fan of nature. It’s the dirt thing. And the grass thing. Fun fact: I am allergic to grass. It makes me super itchy). Anyway, it is strange for me to have a hankering to spend time outdoors, but a-hankerin’ I am!
I just really want it to be spring! I want flowers and sunshine! I want to be able to see the grass that makes me itch so much! I want to wear dresses and lightweight jackets! I want my lips an hands to stop being chapped all the time.
I’m about ready to pack it all in and move back to Florida.
It doesn’t help that 85% of all my favorite bloggers are in the south somewhere. They keep talking about the warmth and the sunshine and I am super happy for them (I am.) but it is just making the cabin fever worse.
This weekend I decided to throw caution to the (considerable) wind and talk a few walks anyway. It was lovely to get out of the house and be outside, but unfortunately many of our sidewalks were still covered in a layer of ice and a good walk is never as nice once your face goes numb. Plus Marcie and I hardcore almost got run over by my neighbor not 5 minutes into our walk. It was like the universe was trying to send us a message: “It’s not warm yet crazies. It’s not time to go outside yet.”
So this girl is a-prayin’ for spring to come SOON. But I heard a rumor that we are going to get another storm this week. And then I cried and cried.
