Ten more days!

"Time for the weather report. It's cold out folks. Bonecrushing cold. The kind of cold which will wrench the spirit out of a young man or forge it into steel."  Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider Northern Exposure  Lost and Found 1992

Where are great television shows when you need them?  I was so cold this morning I didn't want to get out of bed.  I was looking for something to express how I am feeling, when I came across the line from Northern Exposure.  Maybe if I had a great television show to watch this cold cold winter, I wouldn't feel so depressed about this cold.

I am so tired of bitterly cold weather.  Unlike these penguins, one of my favorite animals, I have no one to snuggle against in the coldest weather.  Now I enjoy having the bed to myself most nights, but especially in the winter, the nice warmth of another person would be so comforting.

When you have lived alone for so long, you start to notice some things that you really miss.
I miss the warmth of another human in cold weather, and when I really want someone to talk to.  I mean I love the animals and little Annie tries her best to talk to me, but somehow it is not the same.

It also seems like I might have a furnace problem.  I turned up the thermostat this morning because it is so cold and extremely windy.  It didn't seem like it was warming up much before I left for work.  So I will have to go home later and check on it and call the repair man if it doesn't get warmer.  

This is another thing I hate about being single.  I want someone to be there to help with stupid problems that arise!  I am totally capable of handling it all, I just hate it.

Well stay warm and think of March,  Only 10 more days of the dreaded February!

Oh how I agree with your thoughts about the things you miss when you live alone! Most of the time it's fine but I miss someone there for the highs and lows. :D
