the dregs

How are you holding up? Really? It’s what I’m asking everybody these days. Everyone’s been sick! Kids are all crazy! Weather’s yucky! And there’s no respectable holidays this time to year to even take your mind off it, really (sorry Valentines Day, you and Purim can go hang over there in the corner with St. Paddy). This is it, folks, the sloooow tic-tic-tic of the upward climb of the roller coaster of the year. But of course you all know what that means.

It means this: Spring is coming.

It is. It’s just so hard to remember sometimes. Things will get better–they always do. But this is a very hard time of the year for a lot of us. We remember last year–we have pictures! Photographic evidence of summer! I remember losing all the baby weight two other times. I recall eating dinner outside on the porch, running around the yard, gardening. I remember that for us, there were many months last year when nothing serious went wrong! But still, it’s hard to remember.

Do you love winter? Some do. But, for the rest of us, seriously–how are you getting by right now? Because I do know it’ll get better.

But I’m not sure I believe it.

“What YOU looking at??!”
