It's been four weeks since my mom's funeral. It's been three months since I last saw my dear friend who I'd come to rely on so much. I guess it's no wonder I've been in a funk. It's been hard to get out of bed but easy to climb back in. The colder and grayer the day is the more sedentary and gloomy I become. It's been common on nights that I don't work for me to have a drink and go to bed early. I know it's not normal. I know it's not healthy. I know I need to shake it off somehow before I sink too deep.
Today I got something hot in the mail. A Kindle Fire. A FREE Kindle Fire. Yeah, it pays to have relatives with connections. I've been wanting one of these since I first heard of them. And yes, it is awesome. So this afternoon I'm warming myself by my Fire and trying to think positive thoughts. And maybe I'll even read a book on it. After I play Angry Birds for a while.
