Stats are in...

Weather stats are in...the coldest March since 2001; no days at 70 degrees since before Halloween; more than 3" over in precipitation than average for the month of March; and my favorite: only 47% of the sunshine we should be getting for an average March.

Y'know, I'm just glad to know I'm not turning into some old crank. It ain't me! It's the weather!! Handyman is tired of hearing me complain and I am crabby! The barn is doing great. I can't believe how much longer the sawdust lasts now that we have the bottom skirt board installed. If Handyman were ever home for more than 8 hours of darkness, it'd really move along.

Also, I am really getting a LOT out of 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. I bought it off Ebay so I can highlight the good parts. It is hard to be a good parent. It really yanks on the lazy parts of me. The whole "only 13 more years to go" thing of being unselfish and patient and kind seems a little marathon-ish...

Maybe if it was a little sunnier...

I heard this: The husband sets the pace of a home, the wife sets the tone.

Groan--oh great, it's up to me again...

On a positive note--I dropped off my taxes at the accountant, and once again, I did better than last year and learned some important, simple things I can do to make my life easier next year. Also--the more debt I pay off, the fewer things I have to keep track of next year!

Gotta go hay (and thank God I have some.) Horses are starving in Georgia, I hear.

Can I just say, I'm right there with you on the weather AND the taxes! If this weather doesn't turn around soon, I may never recover. I understand why people get those sun lamps to stop depression in Alaska. No sun stinks! According to last year's garden journal, it was in the 70's every day in March then we had ten days of highs in the 20's in April. Ugh.

I wrote you a big 'ole comment and it didn't show up! Must be lost in this fog we're having! Grrr!

Well, I know what you mean about the weather. Sickening! :) You do know that last April we had 10 days of highs in the 20's?! Of course, we had 70's every single day in March. Where is spring???!!!
Have a great day!
