February is the hardest month here in the far North. Well past the bustle and busyness of the holidays, the days are still dark and cold, and spring is much too far away to contemplate. We all struggle with fatigue here at this time of year. Many choose this month to go vacation in Hawaii and other warm sunny places. It is a battle to get up and face each day, and each small challenge becomes a Denali to be surmounted.
This last week has been especially hard, the exhaustion is overwhelming with all the emotion and distress that one is helpless to assuage.
But....the best cure is to stay busy and focused. And I must do so - I am trying to get geared up and ready to start grad school this summer. And the Steam SkyCity rebuild is progressing afoot, and we need to stay focused to complete and be ready for the big opening. The Newcomers group is up and running and we need to keep the momentum going there. The Caledon Games have begun and the Malaprop Ordinance Challenge is now scheduled for the 15th of this month.
And the Worlds Cutest Puppy - Sprocket the Wonder Dog- will be having his first foot surgery on the 17th of this month. So if I seem a bit distracted or lethargic, just pour in more tea and point me where you need me to go!
