Cabin Fever

It appears as if I have forgotten about this space this week. My work usually isn't very busy, except 4 months out of the year when everyone is traveling at once and I have a Board book to send to the printers and meetings to schedule and lunches to coordinate. That time is now. I forget to even check Bloglovin and read my favorite blogs. (sad face)

I can't just blame work for not sharing my super exciting life with you. Frankly, I blame this never ending Winter. I'm sorry, I'm beating a dead horse here, but I just want this winter to end. I'm craving sunshine on my face, toes in fresh cut grass, a warm breeze across my skin. I want to sit at the end of the dock with my feet skimming the water as little fish try to nibble at my skin (pedicure?). Cruise across the lake with chilled water hitting my back to cool me down. Sit in front of a roaring bon-fire with a cold beer in my hand because said beer just came out of the fridge, not because it's been sitting outside. I want to smell burgers and hot dogs on the grill wafting through the air.

I guess I have to confess that I've been diagnosed with Cabin Fever.

cab-in fe-ver
noun informal
1.  irritability, listlessness, and similar symptoms resulting from long confinement or isolation indoors during the winter.

I have it bad, so don't get too close. I would hate for you to suffer through this with me.

The only thing that's been slightly boosting my mood has been running and getting in little work outs. I was supposed to have a 5k next weekend, but alas, this winter had to interfere with that as well and the course is too bad that they are postponing it until next year.

The following weekend is the Get Lucky 7k though, and regardless of if the race is still on, I have a hotel downtown and I can't wait to either use it as a place to rest my head after a day of running and celebrating being Irish, or use it to enjoy the 10th floor hot tub that looks out over the city, drink champs and watch lots of hotel TV.

treat trays also help me feel better. then I feel fat and I feel bad again.
