Some people do feel their gloom more, come Spring --- the contrast between the climate outside and the climate inside is greater. Find a new and more affordable hoby or hobbies. Get involved in voluntary woprk, which is rewarding in itself, enables you to meet some nice people, keeps you useflly occupied, and helps gets one's problems into perspective.
Part of what you seem to be describing would be the Empty Nest Syndrome. It's so good and important to be a wife and a mother, but one needs to always recognize that you were and are also so much more than that --- you don't stop being valuable and significant in your own right when you lose a partner, or when the children are no longer so directly needy. But volunteer work can be a useful bidging substitute for some of this.
