Ew. I lied. I said that January is a hard month. But, I digress. I think February might be worse. I feel like the thrill of the snow and the cozy evenings are at an all time low. The Christmas season is REALLY over and I am just over the cold, ya know? My students tend to get out of control because they haven't been outside to play. I get grumpy because my mental and physical well-being needs sunshine and warmth.
Yet, it has been 65 and sunny all week. I have noticed a significant difference in MY attitude with teaching and just life in general. I tried to keep myself busy in February because otherwise I get into a "funk." And I did just that. It actually wasn't too bad of a month. The cold got old. Real quick. But I had a ton of fun with friends, parties, the gym, etc. I am so grateful for people who love me through the winter ;)

Went to the Provo City Center Temple Open House. My choir in college was one of the last people in this building before it became a temple. We were rehearsing for a show the next evening. It was an electrical error that caused the fire. The LDS church saved it and it became a temple. So, basically, you're welcome. It was beautiful!
Played in the snow in the mountains!
This is what I do to relax...and during church. What? You don't? You should. I'm five.
Cheered on the Broncos during the Super Bowl!
Read the ever-controversial "Go Set a Watchman." I actually enjoyed it. GASP!
Wrote "love letters" to my students....and they wrote them to themselves. Ha.
Had a cabin getaway to Brian Head Ski Resort with friends. Such a fun weekend!
I actually cooked dinner. And I talked about how I still hate cooking.
