because I am FREEZING all the time. Normally, I run hot, but lately, it’s All Cold All the Time. Is this how skinny people feel? You would think with this extra (extra extra) layer of fat on my bones that I’d be toasty warm, but you would be wrong. Shivery, is what I’m saying.

Also too, in addition to shivery, I’m also very DRY. My hair and skin are arid as a desert. I condition and moisturize and yet still…if you lit a match near my hands, they’d fire up like paper. Yes, I realize I need to hydrate but I don’t like drinking cold water when I’m already cold as ice, so I decided, why not drink hot water? This works like a charm for me, y’all. I seriously just grab my coffee cup, fill it with hot water (from the cooler – isn’t it ironic?) and sip away. I think I am one of those rare birds who doesn’t really care about how flavorful my beverages are – I mostly drink plain water, so drinking plain hot water doesn’t bother me a bit. I have been putting some lemon in my hot water when I get up in the mornings, but when I’m at work it’s just plain ole water. And I’ll drink 5 or 6 cups of water just while I’m at work, then I might have a couple of cups of hot tea just for fun. Having a hot drink makes me feel better during these cold days.  I should be well-hydrated soon.

The SassyPear Family is going through a Season of Crap. You know how sometimes there is a period of weeks or months when things just seem to go wrong or they feel harder than they should? Yeah, we’re going through that right now. Nothing serious or terrible, just lots of little things that keep cropping up. Just when we think we have one thing taken care of, another one pops up in its place. It gets tiring after awhile. However, I know that it’s just a season and this too shall pass. I just hope it passes quickly.
