January Blues


You knew it had to be coming, right? My annual Post-Christmas Blues post? It is January, after all. Every year around Christmas I think, "I'm feeling great. I really think I might avoid the blues this year. Why would it suddenly change just because Christmas is over?" Oh, but give it a week or two. It'll come. It always does.

It was just a few days ago that I realized The Blues were in full force. I stopped to assess my life and, sure enough, the evidence was undeniable.

-Pity and self-loathing over failed resolutions? Check.
-Feeling akin to a deflated balloon after the hype of Christmas came to an end? Check.
-Desire to sleep and play pointless games on my phone overpower any desire to do an actual hobby? Check.
-Making myself feel better for failing my diet by eating chocolate? Check.
-Trying to remember how two weeks ago I was caught up in the Christmas Spirit? Check.

See, it's all there, written all over my makeup-free face. I refuse to admit how many days this week I have not gotten dressed at all. Of course, I've been using my head cold as justification for that, but only I know that really it's because getting dressed is something that happy people do.

The only thing brightening my day today is the hope that maybe you'll find this post entertaining. For past January Blues posts, see my archives. They're all in January. Go figure.

You're not the only one Leeshie. January is not fun. Although I do have an anniversary to look forward to at the end of the month. :)

Here's hoping the the sun will show it's pretty face soon.

I know the feeling. I always get the January blues every year. Today when you saw me, it was literally the first time I was wearing jeans in a week. My pants are all way too uncomfortable from having way too much fun eating yummy treats from Christmas.

Good thing that we have things like blogs where we can all commiserate.

I just love ya, sister! Seriously. Today was the first day I wore makeup and got dressed since Sunday. I didn't have a head cold reason, either. ;-) Just the blues. Although, blue is much too pretty to be used in this case...more like the blacks. Dull Gray? Yeah, you get what I mean. I think the lack of movie popcorn for my birthday might be making it worse this year. There's a new chick flick coming out this weekend, maybe we should try a movie night again soon? :) BTW, been making myself loony designing for you (instead of getting dressed, or doing laundry, or making dinner...), send me some of your ideas soon! No worries, it's a good loony, just wanting to make sure I'm going in the right direction...

Maybe you just need to rock it out....as in rock it out with the Beatles and some girlfriends and some treats......

I've never really gotten the January blues, but this year... a bit different... I think it has to do with this blasted sinus infection though!

Hope you feel great soon!

New Years Resolutions don't mean perfection, it just means you'll try HARDER! Don't give up!

I know what you mean. I would really love it if the sun would shine for longer than 14 seconds. That would definitely help relieve my case of the blues.

On a side note, I meant to tell you yesterday when we were chatting how beautiful you looked!

Can I get an amen?? I was glad for school to start back up just to give me an excuse to get out of bed in the morning and out the door. There was a huge upset in my family, and that didn't help the post holidays blues one bit.
