And Then,Bbefore I Knew It, An Entire Month Went By

It’s been awhile, yes, I know. What can I say? It’s all February’s fault.

See, I hate February. A lot. It’s a short month, but a pretty damn long one. Todd, the dogs and I all get cabin fever after awhile. Luckily February this year went by without any major spats in our house.

But let me tell you about the toll February has on me.

I mentioned the cabin fever. That can be remedied by a hike on a Saturday afternoon. However, this year the snow on the ground remained at knee height for much of the month. It had melted enough to be a soggy pain in the ass, but still too much snow to go tromping around in.

It also kind of pisses me off. I get irritated about having to spend each day of my life sitting in a cubicle from 8 to 5. I look outward chanting “There’s got to be a better way” under my breath. Exasperated, I haven’t found it yet. And so the month continues.

Now that most of March is over, I look forward to other adventures. I look forward to the Owl Prowl we’re going to this Friday night. I look forward to a vacation in Florida in June, and sailing back from Champlain in July. I look forward to diving. I look forward to spending whole days with the top down on the car.

But for now, I wait for March to be over. But on NPR this morning they said that we’re in for 2-4” of snow tonight. Just when I thought it had all melted for the year.

While our snow is mostly gone and the ice breaker has been through so we can see blue water again, instead of a bay covered in ice, it was 10 degrees yesterday morning when I went to work. Terrible.
