1.Because By 9 PM, it’s been dark for five hours, and I have to fight every urge to go to sleep
Humans don’t hibernate. We need tans. We need serotonin production. We need three days laying poolside on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, or we may literally kill ourselves.
2. Because yesterday I tried to scrape the ice off my window and gave up after a minute with aching fingers.
When it’s cold, everything hurts just a little bit more. I, for one, am tired of trekking wood in to fuel the wood stove. I’m totally over wearing puffer jackets in the living room while we hibernate with Netflix marathons, too cold to even get out of bed on the weekends, and sick of wearing hats and socks to sleep to save on heating bills. I am ready for shorts, sundresses and flip flops. My Sorels can burn for all I care.
