I try very hard to be a "glass-half full" person and appreciate all that January has to offer – but the list is too thin to give my anemic optimism much of a boost.
It’s the long dark nights, the short days, the cold, the wind, and the chill. Then there’s the ice dam building up on my roof that will soon require me to climb on a ladder and hack away at it or else face the consequences of water drippng through a roof that needs even more attention. There’s snow to be shoveled and freezing rain to make the drive a nail-biter.
Oh yeah…and there’s at least another 8 weeks of it.
