I understand why the groundhog prefers to retreat

This week, DH has spring break. I think it works out as my work has been picking up and I predict I'll be very busy this week.
I don't know if their is such a thing as spring blues but I think I'm slowly getting it. I'm not depressed but I'm definitely feeling overwhelmed and want to shutdown.
It's as if I'm seeing everything sprouting around me and I'm just here.
I think it's also a weird week as it's the last week of Easter and it can get a bit heavy.
I know I'm being hard on myself too as that cold that has been ping ponging back and forth amongst DH, TG and I is finally disappearing. TG still has a major sticky boogie issue but at least it's not like a leaky faucet.
I've decided that a child's illness will hit his/her parent 3x as hard as it hit the child. Unfortunately, as parents you don't get the luxury to hole yourself in bed with a box of Kleenex, some decongestant and bad daytime tv.
