I have no idea what month it is...

seriously, my natural clock is so screwed up because of the weather we have been experiencing in my part of the country.  Last year I didn't think winter would ever end.  I felt like Mother Nature had a personal vendetta against me.  She must have been feeling pretty crummy about that as the weather has been unusual and phenomenal for the past 8 days, maybe more, I've lost count.  For example today, March 19 it is in the 70's the windows are open, the breeze is blowing and it is GLORIOUS.  It has been 80 degrees for the last couple of days.  Not that we don't have a nice day in March every so often but this has been sustained nice temps.  What in the world is going on?  Is the world ending?  Is global warming for real?  Is Mother Nature trying to kiss up?  I have no idea but I like it.  Oh and if you think I'm confused you should hear the birds.  I have never heard so much tweeting and peeping and hoot hoot hooting.  It's crazy.  It's like a Dr. Seuss book come to like with all the happy noisy creatures around.  I can't wait for those furry, fuzzy trees to show up like they have in The Lorax. 

So enough about the weather - but really it makes me happy. 

I had a very nice birthday followed by a nice week.  The kids made me special gifts from their hearts and we enjoyed birthday cake and Outback on Saturday.  I think that makes it a celebration.  Last Monday I also spent the day in the big city with my friend Roxann visiting old friends and catching up.  It was good - very good - but it makes me miss those friends even more.  We did have a bit of a problem getting out of our friend Malia's cul du sac with the navigation system leading us to deserted and non-existent roads, empty cul du sacs and the children of the corn (it's a long story and really if we hadn't been laughing so hard we might have ended up on the right path sooner and not run into those scary kids one more time - , after 10:00 p.m., in the dark, sitting in the middle of an empty, undeveloped cul du sac, two kids in hoodies, faces covered - I was scared.  Admit it, it would have scared you.

TTFN... and remember those GPS systems don't always know what they are talking about.
