If youíre anything like me, once the excitement of Christmas and New Yearís has worn off, the winter just starts to get rather boring and kind of annoying. The snow gets dirty, there is too much ice. You donít have time to go skiing or skating once school starts back up. Days are short, nights are long and you have more homework that ever. Iím depressed just thinking about it.

But this year, Iím not going to let winter get the best of me. Iím going to keep those blahs at bay, and I think you should to. Here are some of my favorite tricks for surviving until spring (or at least Spring Break.)

Spa Day

Dry winter air does a number on my skin, so every now and again I have a spa day for myself. I push off those nasty book reports and projects for a few hours and soak in a warm bubble bath. Then I lather on the lotion and apply a good facial moisturizing mask. While thatís drying, I spend some time doing my nails. Fingernails are fun year round, but pedicures always feel like a luxury in the winter since nobody ever sees your feet. Maybe Iíll just have to find a way to show off my cute toes!

Snuggle Time

As far as Iím concerned there is nothing better in the winter than staying in bed as long as possible. Iím fortunate to have a laptop, so on Saturday mornings (unless I have to be somewhere) Iím most likely still in bed, snuggled up under my covers with my laptop fired up next to me. Why sit at a freezing desk when I can chat in the warmth of my favorite blankets propped on my comfy pillows?

Okay, Iíve been known to do this at night, too Ė not just in the morning. Hey! A girlís got to chat, right? If you donít have a laptop, Iíd highly recommend just pulling your covers off the bed and taking them with you to your computer. You can always remake your bed later.

Fashion Show

Another way to make myself happy is to have a fashion show. Winter wardrobes are rather basic what with all the layers and thick sweaters. But when I get bored and canít stand another science assignment, Iíll just climb into my closet to try on everything I own in new and exciting ways. Break apart outfits you bought together and try different accessories.

You may discover youíve outgrown some old stuff and suddenly can use other things in new ways. Pull out the items you donít wear anymore and give them to a younger sister, friend or charity. Then you have new space in your closet to fill up. This brings us to my next activityÖ

Shop!

Stores, bless them, understand that we are over winter by the second week of January. That must be why they get their spring and summer clothes in by the middle of January. That also means those clothes start going on sale three days later. (Okay, maybe three weeks later, but whatever.) Save that Christmas money and get started on your new spring wardrobe now. You can bet I am.

That seems adequate.

But where I live which is VERY close to the equator, its like Summer (except in the mornings) every single day.

So, I'd be swimming in the pool more likely.

LOLS.
