Hi, there, MJKobernus,
Yes, the winter is hard and long, especially when you want it to be spring YESTERDAY. Maybe it will be fun for you to spend some of your time making plans for summer. If you are of boat
projects, that you want to accomplish, spend some thought there, and get them all organized, which tools you want to use, etc.
Other than that, there are books
, and films, and perhaps cross country skiing?
I want to reassure you that all will be well, but of course, I can't know that, just know that a bunch of us understand, and are wishing you well. And congratulations, as well.
