It's a little crazy how excited I get to turn the calendar page and start a new month. Some months give me a bigger thrill than others. March is one of those because we begin easing into spring (I'm just hoping Mother Nature will get the word soon) and also because my little one celebrates her birthday this month. This month also held my Momma's birthday as well as the anniversary of the day my Sweet Hubby did not propose to me. You know the day as St. Patrick's Day. I know it as Here's a Ring, I'm Just Gonna Fall Asleep Now Day. It's a lot to fit on a greeting card.
It seems every day finds me shuffling things around this nest, trying to trick myself into believing there isn't snow on the ground. I've been steadily adding to my milkglass collection. There is a pattern of behavior that may or may not indicate addiction. It goes something like: Oh pretty! I have to have it! I don't need it! I'm going to buy it anyway! I shouldn't have bought that! That is absolutely the last piece I'm buying! Look how pretty it looks in the house! I'm so happy I bought it! Yep. Not even kidding. But I'm sure I can quit anytime!
There is a lot of birthday prep going on around here. Also, some long overdue decorating is happening in my bedroom and some freshening up of my about to be teenager's bedroom. But mostly there is a lot of finger twiddling and impatient foot tapping and wish making for spring. Come on already March! Show us what you can do!
