It Sounds Warmer Out…
This morning when I woke up, it was just a little better. My shades were down but I could hear the birds!! Chirping like they should be!! (Under the crying/ yelling of my two year-old who had just woken up on the wrong side of bed in his bedroom.)
There was more light at 6:40 AM than yesterday and it’s seeming to get better each morning. Could it really be here??
I’m afraid to open the shades, because I know there will be puddles of muddy snow and a mudpit of a yard to look at, so for now I’m just chillin in bed with #1 (Christian, our 2 year-old) and I hear #2 (Our two-month old, Justin) starting to squalk in his nursery.
I don’t know about you but I’m so ready for these:
… I did see red buds on our maple tree last week so it’s on its way!!!
Are you as ready for Sring as I am???
When I was a little kid, my grades used to drop a little in the Spring. I looked out the windows more and rushed through my homework. In the second grade, my teacher, Sister Marian, called my mom in for a chat about my grades. (They were usually straight-As but she’d noticed that my work wasn’t as good.) She thought maybe my parents’ divorce was having an effect on me. (I was 2 years old when they’d split up so it had been 6 years and honestly I’d never known what life was like with married parents.) My mom listened patiently and then simply explained that I got a little less into school in the Spring. Call it “Spring Fever” if you will, but it’s almost got me now. (And it “gets me,” it’s that strong.) I can’t wait!!
Anyone else got a feva???
ps- I need more cowbell!! (Saturday night Live)
