Spring Fever


Is it finally Thursday? I am SO ready for a Friday, even if it is Friday the 13th. I don't worry much about all that garbage. It's been a long week. Nick was off work on Wednesday and today, it's just too chilly to be out hauling bricks, I guess. So . . .rather than hang out a Jen's parent's house, They came by here and just left this afternoon. I don't mind having them over, but it doesn't take much to throw off my routine.

I had to go to court today on my speeding ticket today. Court sucks, especially here in Johnson County. (they're such greedy little a-holes) I'm still fuming over a $342.00 speeding ticket - how absurd! And the judge looked at me like I was just going to pull that kind of money out of my pocket and hand it over to him. I told him, "Yup, I did that, I'm guilty, but I need time to pay." They gave me until April 20th. Gosh, I wonder if Obama can straighten out all this economy crap by then? I'm thinkin' chances are good, that I won't be much better off in a month. Oh Gosh, I really need to win the lottery.

Well, I guess the insanity will begin next week. Only two days of school, then the kids are off for Spring Break. I'm really praying that the weather warms up by then, so that I can throw them outside once in a while. Sheesh, I need to get outside myself! It was starting to look like spring for a while, now it's back to being cold! I need to get out, get some exercise with my dogs, do some yard work, and most of all, I really need to see some green and soak up some sunshine !!! The trees were just starting to bud, the spring tulips and daffodils had just poked up from the ground, when it snowed. I don't want another spring like last year - it took forever for the trees to fill out and the lawns to turn lush and green. I'm starting to feel claustrophobic with all theses house plants. It's obvious that they are longing for some real sunshine, instead of fluorescent light, and water that falls from the sky, instead of the chlorinated, fluoridated stuff from the sink.

I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining, It's actually more of hoping and wishing. Winter was a big disappointment this year, I'm ready to move on to spring.

Well, I'm going to get myself off to bed.
Good night all.
Love,
Susan
