I blinked and March was gone

March 2016
In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.
~Mark Twain

I have no idea how this  happened. One day it was mid-March and the next day it is mid-April. March seemed to come and go in the blink of an eye. In short, March was a blur. Spring began and I think I missed it.

I remember thrilling at the sight of daffodil blooms. I remember dreary, wet days of rain. Mom Nature teased with days in the 60F and when we got used to that, she plummeted the temps to a high of 40F.

I vaguely remember frantically trying to tie up loose ends with my class and work before spring break. Since The Recruiter wasn’t able to get off work for a week, Entrepreneur and I volunteered to drive the grand girls to Alabama to see their dad, hang around the area for a week and then bring them back home. This was Twix’s first time away from her familiar routine and surroundings and we weren’t sure how she would fare.

Re-entry after break was rough. Both girls came home sick, which was evidently passed to me during the 13-hour car ride back to middle Missouri. Sunday began one of the worst sore throats I can remember….prompting me to [gasp] go to the doctor a few days later. Twix is still fighting a cold, and thankfully it has not turned into anything worse. Behaviors in the 8-and-under crowd have been as volatile as the weather, which has not been conducive to making this Nana Nanny feel better.

The garden sits unattended with a partial fence built to keep out the critters. The spring booms are admired from afar as I don’t have the desire to fight the 20mph wind to go outside. And I honestly don’t know where the hours go in the day. Oh…wait…there’s a two year old in the house… who just announced she took the batteries out of the television remote. Ahhh…..now, I remember.

So, now it’s April?

  1. Life becomes a blur with little ones around, doesn’t it? I remember when I babysat my grandkids, even when it was only one of them, in their toddling years – complete exhaustion and fervent wishes that they could donate some of that energy to me.

  2. Lisa, I agree….where the heck did March go?!? Time is just flying, isn’t it? I can’t believe it’s already been a YEAR since I started my new job because it feels like yesterday.

    And speaking of a cold, I am slowly getting over one. I got it about a week ago (a head cold) and I’m still a little congested and coughing a bit. I never felt really bad, so I was able to still go to work.

    Beautiful collage! I especially love the photographs of the sleeping cat and sleeping Twix. ADORABLE!

    Have a great week, my friend!

  3. March did pass quickly and now I see April also seems on fast forward. I hope you feel better soon–take care of a 3 year old granddaughter every day and have caught many a pre-school cold from her. When she goes home in the evening to her parents I collapse on the couch and take a nap…lol Grands are fun but so exhausting at times!

  4. I do have to say, as much as I look forward to grand kids someday I am enjoying the freedom of an new adult and an almost adult. I can wait a few years for grandkids. Whooh.

    Happy Spring friend. I hope you are feeling better soon and get to enjoy it. We do nto have as much color up here and I am missing it.
