What happened to January and February?

March 1st. Still freezing cold in Michigan, and the country as a whole I would have to say. So, in anticipation of the coming warm weather, (I mean it can’t stay like this forever, can it? CAN IT?? 😦 ) I am going to think warm and fuzzy thoughts!

Complaining about the snow should qualify as an Olympic sport, and I am pretty sure I would medal out on this one! So, no more complaining for me, I promise!

Looking forward to Spring, and especially Easter, I am going to brighten up my kitchen and bathroom with some warm, sunny, pastel colors. I redo my bathroom every year (small bathroom; new shower curtain and rugs, soap dispenser and trash can, a couple pictures for the wall, and a few towels to hang up and I call it good!).

I feel like I am looking forward to Easter as much as I did Thanksgiving and Christmas. Easter is actually my favorite holiday of the year, yes even before St. Patrick’s Day! I am looking forward to warmer weather, flowers blooming, and birds chirping. I am making a promise to myself that I will not complain one single time this year about how hot the Summer is. And they are already predicting higher than normal temps this year. Why not, right?

How have you been dealing with your snow and having cabin fever? I have read so many books it is ridiculous, and my Statistics class is now officially stressing me out! I make no promises about not complaining about my college classes, but I am pretty sure if I can get through this class with a solid B (which is what I need in order for my employer to pay for this class) the rest will be smooth sailing. If I have to pay for a class that did nothing but stress and upset me: YES, I am going to be pissed!

Here’s to a Happy March and warmth and sunshine on the way!

Enough Is Enough!

ImageHow I felt when winter came early this year!♥

I have been more than polite about it, even enjoyed it coming early in November and embraced it all through the Christmas Season. I didn’t even say on December 26th, as I do every year, “OK, Christmas is over, you can melt now!” I didn’t complain yesterday when my co-worker had to push my car out of a snow drift for me, or when it took 10 minutes to get into my driveway at home. I have been enjoying the snow on a daily basis, embracing the beauty of it, no matter how much I have had to shovel at work and home.

But now I feel I have been quiet long enough.

How I am beginning to feel about this Michigan weather

Honestly, after some jerk stole my snow shovel, I was ready for Winter to be over. But nope, I went a bought another shovel (safely stored in my house, dripping snow and salt all over my foyer floor), and Thank Goodness I did. But this is just ridiculous. I knew we were due for a bad winter here in Michigan, but I didn’t think a couple mild years were going to be made up for in a matter of less than 3 months.

My kids have been home since the middle of December more than they have went to school. They are getting serious cabin fever, and I ran out of ideas to keep them occupied about 2 weeks ago. They even ran out of books to read. Yes, they ran out of books to read in my house!!

Does anyone out there have some sunshine they are enjoying right now? Can you share? PLEASE!!!
