At last

Goodbye February! PLEASE let the door smack you on the way out!

Ahhh... March. I am crying figurative tears of joy at the beginning of a new month. February, though busy and fun, sucked monkey balls. I wasn't depressed or anxious or SAD this year, but it still affected me. The blah-ness. The ongoing depletion of Vitamin D and fresh air and colors besides gray and brown.

But March is here and with it the tiny little sprouts of green in the trees and bushes. The crocuses will soon angrily thrust their way through the frozen ground with a chlorophyllic middle finger to Winter. The air has begun to warm noticeably to the point that I wore a TANK TOP under my hoodie today. I mean, 43 DEGREES, y'all. That's practically sandal weather.

And so, to give Spring a brilliant Welcome, I do believe that my children and I shall hit Brookfield Zoo this week and enjoy the breaking of Winter's back.

Shit. The weather forecast calls for snow on Thursday... Bollocks.*

*In addition to making a more deliberate effort to "Be Funnier" I am also making a deliberate effort to swear with more creativity. Don't like it? I don't Bloody Care!

No kidding. Fare thee well. February is my most hated month.

I was more than happy to kick February's a$$ on the way out. Then I woke this morning to -51C with the wind. March can suck-it right now, too. >:(

I love British Swearing. It's so fancy. Arse is a good one. I think bollocks is quite dirty, though. It's bleeped over there on the telly. (ooh, see what I did there? telly! now I have to get something out of the boot.)

I actually like winter, but I'm ready for some warm days and outdoor play. Bring it, March!

Julie said...

Heehee! February...the only real reason for valentine's day...so we don't go completely insane and kill each other? Hate February.

I've been watching Touch of Frost on Netflix lately to learn creative swearing. Now, I'm not a slag and you'd be a sod if you didn't watch. I might want to kick you in the ghoulies and take you down to the nick.

Ooohhh!!! Fancy, Julie!! Touch of Frost, eh? Lemme check it out.

FYI, March began with a headcold for yours truly. Insert creative swear word... NOW!

I am SO happy to see February gone once again. The reason it's the shortest month of the year is because everyone hates it!

My kids squealed with delight yesterday over the simple fact they could actually see the rocks in our driveway underneath the melting snow. That's pretty pathetic. LOL!

Okay, I know everyone knows this already, and that you (hopefully) know this already, but I just gotta say:
You are FUNNY! You totally made me laugh, especially the crocuses and the finger… yep. Good stuff.
Anyway. Just thought it needed to be said :) Thanks for leaving awesome comments on Deb's blog, because that meant I found you. And now I've got someone else making me laugh and saying wise and beautiful things. Thank you!

March is my favorite month of the year, not only is my birthday this month, but it's usually when you can start HOPING for spring without feeling like a fool. So glad to see the back of February!

When we moved to Hawaii I thought I'd be immune to whatever it is about February that makes me want to poke my eyes out with a stick, but No.

And now I shall always see crocuses as thrusting with their chlorophyllic middle finger. Thanks for that. No, seriously, thanks.

You crack me up. Damn snow. Just keep it there. We don't need more here!!
