Happy Blue Monday? Am I being flippant? Maybe. This is said to be the most depressing day of the year. Any takers? Let me know how your day went in comments.
I was all set to do some errands today and then remembered that this is
Martin Luther King Day
Maybe that ties together perfectly with current events: An attempt on a congresswoman's life, Blue Monday and MLK Day. We've had two black Americas professing hope and change overshadowed by violence and hate. So I guess it is Blue Monday after all. They say nothing lasts forever and I hope that holds true for hard times but jeez it's sure taking a long time to get over this dark cloud. Me, I'm a realist. I always assume things will go wrong and plan accordingly. Maybe that's what's kept me alive for the last 20 years.
