By a Thread

My car is in the shop for the fourth time since the great spark plug debacle.

I'm still hacking from my second bad cold in 3 weeks.

We had water in the basement last week due to a broken gutter (due to near-record snowfall avalanching off the roof).

Our pet parrot cost us $750 in vet bills last week may be experiencing chronic kidney failure (such a copy cat!) and is probably nearing the end of his life.

February is over. Let us never speak of it again.

See? And now March comes in and we get to hang on Saturday with Marj to celebrate Heather. Woot! A better month already.

(Though I am sorry about your parrot (sniff!), your cold, your car and the wet basement. All of those things separately suck, and all together...well, you know.)

I don't care what the calendar says, February is clearly the longest month. Here's to spring!

I'm kinda thinking that we girls are to blame for your bad car karma.

I'm sorry to hear about your bird.

Yes -- March will be better! But it may take a while to warm up. Greta blog post today by my friend Elizabeth at Life in Pencil ( about "sloshing" around between seasons - both literally and figuratively.

Hey Grrl - Amen to Feb being over, and January for that matter - here is to spring and better times in both our lives.

If I lived closed enough, I would bring Grady over for a playdate. :-)
