IT'S MARCH! I love March! Why? Well if you don't remember how I feel about February, stop and go read this post:
Van Buren Day
It's simply amazing to me how my frame of mind changes when I flip that calendar page from February to March as I did this morning. Of course, here in south Texas it has little to do with the weather and spring coming (it was 92 here last week) and more to do with going from the grinding bowels of the school year where we're all dragging to the hopeful light at the end of the tunnel, where May is clearly in sight! This happens every year and doesn't mean that we dislike the whole venture...it's just part of the cycle and represents the anticipation of another year about to be completed.
This year, with irritating health challenges, I'm extra-ready to close the books, but I realize we have a good bit to go. Never mind, though, the page says "MARCH" and that means that "MAY" is just month-after-next!
For those of you who, like me, are just stumbling out of the February blues, take a deep breath, buckle down for a few more weeks, and soon we'll all be breathing the intoxicating air of a few months of complete change of pace.
(And for those of you who school year-round, sorry, I can't help you there...I'd be in the insane asylum by now!)
