I've had just about enough of this month. The rink is soggy. The driveway is soggy. There is dirt on the snow everywhere, and the snow is still piled deep and high. It's wet and cold and it's not pretty. Even a Steller's Jay does little to cheer things up outside.

Inside we are bored and testy. We had a Nothing Day today, one of those normally precious days where we had nothing scheduled. And nobody much enjoyed it. There was no creativity, no initiative. We sat around killing time on the computer, reading, puttering, lying on the living room floor. There was no imaginary play amongst the kids. There was no energy.

I'm just about ready for April. Enough with February already. Too bad there's still March in the way.


  1. Amen to that! We have less snow, but plenty of wet, cold, miserable weather.

    I'm trying desperately to be creative about our killing of time, but it doesn't always work out that way.

  2. Yeah. Right there with ya.
