…in that she is a hibernatory mammal.

only, not nearly so adorable.

This is why you have heard nothing about the house in months. I’ve been hibernating on the couch with the pups. I sometimes rouse to thaw my hands in hot dishwater, which has a side effect of being a (lone) sign of productivity and housekeeping.

I didn’t know this about myself when i lived in an apartment; it’s easy to mistake hibernation for everyday life indoors.

I don’t think it’s a particularly effective mechanism for dealing with winter. But giving myself permission to wear gloves at all times – including when the weather is “springlike” – has improved things greatly. Only, not when doing dishes – that is a bad time for gloves.
