Cabin Fever

Lone Dog in Meadow
Keller, TX

We've been hit by a cold Arctic blast here in North Texas.  For the last two days, we've not been able to budge from our homes.  Most of the local streets still have solid patches of ice glazing their surfaces.  Sidewalks and roads remain very treacherous to navigate.  Temperatures in the teens plus gusts of wind have turn our mild winter into full blown Yankee weather.  We would have been much better off if we had just been buried in snow.

Two days  of lock down and now possibly three have left me with tremendous cabin fever.  My body wants to start moving again and I feel as if I have to get out of the house or go crazy.  I don't mind working from home but I have to get out, get exercise, and socialize with the rest of the world.  I can't create without stimulus.  I feel lost without new ideas.

Today, I will try to venture out and walk to Starbucks.  Then after a hot cup of brew, I am going to work on my business plan.  Hey, I am a little slow and methodical, but I know its time to draw up my blue print of how I intend to reach my goals.  It will happen but I have to go through the exercise.  By the way, I even ordered my business cards, a tremendous step in the right direction.

If I really get bored, I suppose I could start getting rid of things that are cluttering my office.  I am sure there's plenty of needless paper that I've archived over the past year.  I've got cabin fever but I need to turn the hysteria into something positive today.  Let's see what the day will bring me.

  1. Winter's bane.

    I think I have reset my office several times in the last few months. I like how it is now. I liked how it was before too. Trying to adjust the aura hoping for a positive contribution to the rest of all that I do.

    Keep on with it Al.
