Living with months of a wintry white landscape and below-freezing temperatures outside can start to grate on one’s nerves, resulting in a “condition” our pioneer ancestors called “cabin fever.”
Some of the symptoms, according to Wikipedia, include restlessness, irritability, excessive sleeping, and paranoia. Sound familiar?
I’d include a loss of motivation and lack of creativity. Maybe it’s just the law of inertia in effect — an object at rest tends to stay at rest — but cabin fever could very well be what causes us to need a prolonged period of spring cleaning!
I spent all afternoon Sunday doing taxes, and that, combined with the weather, has left me a little unmotivated and non-creative. So, I thought I’d just share something fun today. No deep revelations, no heavy thoughts, no scriptural lessons… (I know, some of you are breathing a sigh of relief, and some of you are asking, ‘when did she have a deep revelation?’)
Here are the Muppets, from the movie Muppet Treasure Island, singing “Cabin Fever.”
It brightened my day, I hope it brightens yours!
