Default Jan 24 is "officially" the most depressing day of

Read in our newpaper this morning about a psychologist who did a study... and has declared Jan. 24 "officially" the most depressing day of the year.

It's the day people are struggling to come to grips with they money they owe on credit cards from Christmas shopping, and waiting for a payday which they can call some of the money their own, combined with the short daylight hours, and the cold temps, with the sight of spring still a distance away.

So.. if you are feeling overly depressed today... at least you now know you're not alone.

I fortunately without even knowing this had come up with the perfect anecdote... I'm cruising this weekend!!! <G>

Can't feel depressed today. The Patriots are going to the Super Bowl again. Maybe I'll delay it until tomorrow

Maybe that's why I have a headache? At least I have Kuki's remedy!

Cheers,

January 24 is in fact the most depressing day of the year. Why? Because the temp is currently 14degrees going down to zero tonight, there are 15 inches of sbow outside and I'm sitting here reading about all you guys who are going cruising this weekend.
Now THAT is depressing.
Bon Voyage all.

I agree with Papabill. It's depressing to know that everyone will be cruising this weekend and I'm sittin here with 17" of snow. YUK!!!

Hi:
I was really depressed before I even knew about today being the most depressing day of the year. I usually have a cruise planned for the last week of January for my husband's birthday, and this year, we have to wait until September to cruise. I'm also sick of the cold and snow we've had already this winter in the midwest and I'm in a new job that I absolutely "hate" and I'm looking around for another job. Other than that, everythings great....
Happy cruising to everyone lucky enough to be getting away right now.
Anita
