Have you ever heard of S.A.D.? This time of year I understand how people can get completely lost in a world of gray, boring misery. I sat for a solid hour yesterday and watch some freaking squirrel with OCD rebuild his/her nest. He (or she, who the heck knows without getting way too friendly with a wild squirrel.) would go out on a limb, chew off a stick, go back and stick it in his nest over and over and over. After I realized I had been watching him for an hour and was completely engrossed in this nesting thing of his I thought maybe it was time I got out and did something so I went to a basketball game. I watched kids run back and forth, back and forth and try to put the ball in the nest....err I mean net for a couple of hours. Today I am watching it rain. When my daughter gets home we are going to sears to pick up a toolbox my husband ordered so at least I have something to look forward to. My house looks like it was home to a wild party in the last few days and my laundry is way past needing done, but for some reason I don't care at all. I could lay down right now and sleep for another few hours or watch the deer eat acorns out of the yard but I don't think I can handle the excitement. I did hear rumors of snow in a few days, but the weather forcasters in our area can't tell me what it will do tonight with any accuracy at all so I don't believe them when they say snow Monday and Tuesday. It is 60 degrees outside now and has been that much more than it has been cold this winter. I don't like cold weather but I do like a little snow so I can watch the idiots that think they can get up the hill by my house slide in the ditch over and over. They do it every year. We make popcorn, and listen for cars all everning. I do believe I need a life!
