Yes, I realize that we've not had the huge amounts of snow that the Mid Atlantic and Eastern Seaboard have had....we had that over Christmas, but still having snow (as everyone can attest) on the ground constantly is a real bummer. This particular year, the snow has turned me into a big, fat chicken!!! With my knee difficulties I am overly cautious about when and where I walk. I even postpone grocery trips if I think the snow will be too packed down and therefor slick. I opted out of church on Sunday because the snow pack in the church parking lot is always slick. To clarify, I am NOT afraid to drive in this stuff, I'm leery about walking on top of it. I shuffle down the driveway to retrieve garbage cans, pick up mail, etc., but walking on the poorly shoveled sidewalks around the shopping areas kinda scare me. I absolutely HATE feeling this way. I can't get my cortisone shot (don't ask me why) until Mar. 25. That's when my knee will go back to feeling semi-normal, and I am anxious for that day. Perhaps that will give me some of my "oomph" back. I feel like I need a trip to OZ to get a dose of courage. I'd ask for a brain, too, but that would be just plain greedy. :)

Blah, Blah, Blah
I realize it isn't Weigh In Wednesday yet, and I'm a little early...but, I did manage to get my 1# loss. Even tossed in an extra .1# to boot. However, even sticking to the plan and accomplishing what I wanted to do has not alleviated the winter doldrums that have overtaken me. On last night's weather report the weather "person" mentioned that since Dec. 1 we have not had 5 straight days without some sort of snowfall. This week may be the first such week since then. We might just have 5 days without snow. There is also promise of continued sun this week. I'll believe that when I see it. It'll still be cold, but the sun would be a most welcome sight.
