I need a change

The past couple of days I've found myself very antsy and craving something new... I get urges to go shopping, move furniture, paint the house (I've picked a new color for my bedroom...). I think I need spring. I'm the type of person who likes change...it's not that I want things that are necessarily big or expensive - just different. I always loved hand-me-down clothes (and still do) or getting a good deal at an outgrown shop. I love changing my decorations and planting flowers in the flower beds in the spring because it just make things seem fresh. I love season changes - all of them - because I'm just so ready for something new by the time the warm -or cool- sets in. But I'm not always the best just smack in the middle of stuff. Projects - I start strong and finish strong, but in the middle I tend to drag just a big. Mid-winter I usually get a bit down in the dumps, and mid-summer I usually find myself sick of the heat/humidity and wanting to stay in the air conditioning a bit more.

So here I am, in the doldrum. Don't feel any excitement urging me to clean (like I do when the anticipation starts building to throw open windows and let the fresh air surge through), and I don't feel the warm-fuzzies of looking forward to the holidays. I'm just blah... So I'm looking for something new and exciting to spur me on to productivity, and get me over the hump of the mid-winter blues. I'll let you know if I come up with anything fun! (I definitely think there's going to be some furniture somewhere moved...)
