Good riddance Febuary. . .
The girls certainly have been enjoying the snow but I have to say as the snow melts I am catching every tiny chance I get to get out in the yard. I have never been this spring-feverish to get things done as I am this year. I suppose it is partially because last year at this time I was so busy packing the house up for our trip to Italy that the yard was the last thing on my mind. I think I spread a little compost on the garden plot but that was about it. Which means lots of work this year. . .
Today I at least got out in the yard and put some dead leaves and dirt on out compost pile which was beginning to look like a bit of an eyesore. The hollowed out grapefruit rinds and egg shells were beginning to outnumber the plant matter. The squirrels were becomming curious and it was starting to feel a bit like the Monty Python peasent dwellings. Suffice to say it is all hidden now under a pretty layer of dead leaves.
I had my errands-day in town today and I did everything on my list execpt the post office which overwhelmed me to no end. I always put it off until last and frankly after the grocery store, the library, the health food store, the bank, and the thrift store I decided to buy those pretty stamps online and pay the stupid dollar in shipping. I don't know how people with more than two children ever do anything. I can't even go into the post office with two kids after a morning of errands.
In and out of carseats all morning. In-out -in-out. Jeesh i'm probably giving my kids complexes, in addition to stressing myself out. Which is why I have limited myself to one day a week of this madness. Otherwise I glory in the possibilities of online shopping in my pajamas, with tea in hand, children happily sleeping in their beds. Yes THAT is worth five bucks in shipping,
