March 2009

Well, who would have thought that we would have a huge winter storm moving through on the last weekend in March.  For goodness sake, last weekend we worked in the garden, slept with the windows open, and simply enjoyed the beautiful spring weather.  This weekend, my race is cancelled, my trip to Kansas City is cancelled, my opportunity to eat and shop in a real city is cancelled.  Damn snow. 

I know other parts of the state have had some winter weather, but here in Jefferson City, we’ve mainly just had to deal with the cold.  I got snow boots and pants for Gaby that still have their tags on them!  I guess one good thing about the storm is that Gaby might actually get to play in the snow this year.  However, in all reality, I am not a fan of winter.  Bring back my spring. 

So, I am very disappointed that I will not get to spend the weekend with my sisters.  Although, this is probably for the best.  I would have stayed up too late, ate too much, drank too much, and spent too much money.  This week and next are very busy weeks at work with very late nights, so a couple days at home will do me good.


So, I pretty much spent last week unplugged; therefore, no blog update.  I took some decent pictures, but since I was off work I didn’t have the motivation to sit behind the computer and edit pictures.  (Plus I think our monitor has blown a color tube, and I can’t tell which colors are which.  The computer is almost 10 years old and won’t die, but we’ve gone through two monitors now.) 

I cleaned house, cooked real food, played with Gaby, and worked in the garden.  It was a great and well-needed week off work.  Now the craziness at work ensues.  The final eight weeks of session will be grueling, starting with this week.  I just have to remember that the prize is time off this summer.  Eyes on the prize, Ang.  Eyes on the prize.

Wow, it has been a long time since I posted here.  It’s been a long time since I’ve had much time for recreational computer use, evidence by the 1000+ new posts on Google Reader.  One great thing about working for the state legislature is that I get spring break again.  In previous years, I’ve only taken a few days off.  This year, I’m taking off all next week!  I’m sending Gaby to the babysitter for two days so I can get some serious spring cleaning done.  I’m actually looking forward to this.  So, look for some updates as to what we’ve been up to lately.
