I started to use the word "depressed" in my title, but I suffer not from that state of mind. Although I've never been "depressed", it cost me a marriage (25 yrs ago). The ex is still "recovering". I had a difficult time understanding it. Still do.

Back to the post title. Perhaps it's the weather. This cold and gloom is getting to me, despite my little two weeker in Florida. And no end in site. Global warming can't come soon enough for me! I'm an outdoor person--golf and garden and hiking. Hard to do when the weather is like it's been.

Second, the truck (Toyota Tacoma) I ordered in mid December (!!) hasn't even begun to be assembled. "It's not on the production list", I'm being told. Boo hiss. I'm considering cancelling the order and buying one off the lot, even if it isn't what I really want. But I want what I want!

My sister with breast cancer is not doing so hot. I'm worried and concerned about her life. She's lost her hair and is fatigued from the chemo. Only 68 yrs old. I'm close to her, so it troubles me.

My "sustainable farming" daughter and family is consumed with building problems and debt with moving their operation to a new location. It's overwhelming what they have to do. Multi-tasking with time running out (Spring planting) is virtually impossible. One can only do so much in so little time. I help with greenhouse seeding and babysitting (today again), but it's not nearly enough. Plus, they owe me gobs of money, and I mean gobs.

I could add more to my list, but it's "depressing" enough, as is. Still, I have much to be thankful for. Look on the bright side, right?

Hang in there Randall.  Soon the peaches and cherries will be blooming.  You'll be out in the garden planting potatoes and peas.  You'll smell the soil and hear the birds.  It will be good.

Seasonal Affective Disorder might be an issue, though it sounds as though you have some definite issues that would not help matters.  Might be worth talking to your doc about it.

Randall, there is a bright side. The month of March is always cold, wet and gloomy where you're at. I'm originally from Kankakee, IL - about 100 miles NW of you as the crow flies. Familiar with the weather during this time of year - including the flooding on the Kankakee River, which banks I grew up on.

As to the vehicle, yeah it's a pain in the ass. I ordered a car in October of 2011 and it was delivered in January 2012. Know the feeling.

As to your sister, I sincerely hope she gets better. But - thank science - without modern medicine would she still be with you?

As to the children, they going to worry you till you take your last breath. That's the nature of being a parent. Welcome to the club. As to the $$$, at least you were in a position to help. That's more than a lot of parents can say.

Besides, you live in Zone 5 planting are for the US. The last spring frost date is coming up at the end of this month. Time to be pouring through those seed catalogs and tuning up the tiller. There's something to look forward to.
