    Default Got The Winter Blues? Try This...

    Here's my remedy for the winter blues.
    First, get some Coppertone sunblock or tanning oil. Make sure whatever you get SMELLS like the beach to you!

    Second, chop up plenty of fresh fruit or get cans of pineapple, mandarin oranges, and anything else that reminds you of summer.

    Third, you'll need a lamp that puts out some heat.

    Fourth, some music. Beach Boys works for me.

    Fifth, perhaps a magazine on sailing or some other summertime activity for visuals.

    Now put on your suntan lotion, plunk down under the heat lamp with your bowl of fruit and start blasting music! Leaf through your magazine of choice and escape! Works like a charm and you'll forget all about what is going on outside.
    Hang in there peeps, Winter will pass!

    Nice idea. We have had the first snowless January in New York in 75 years! Yay!

    Get in the van and drive south to your house.

    Well..................

    After I posted my reply to your post lafitte I left to take my son and some of his friends to an indoor park to ride their bikes. Once I skated across my driveway and into my car. Had a hard time getting in and out of two other driveways and had a large piece of ice hit my windshield that flew off from the top of an eighteen wheeler - I hate route 80 - I think I'm ready. We had freezing rain here yesterday - schools were either closed or delayed and it's impossible to get some of it removed without industrial strength chemicals - which I won't use. However I would feel like I am abandoning the boys of the house - and quite frankly don't think I could face what I would return to if I left. But I am sooooooooooooooo close. And there is at least one peep on these threads that knows I am enough of a free spirit to just get up and leave. But I am a devoted mom and can't during the times that school is in session.

    But please, please - the forces that whirl the weather - fix it.

    Sounds good to me. I am waiting patiently for my kids to finish school. Then I am heading south for good. Just don't know where I want to live for the rest of my life just yet.
