Beware the Ides of March

I'm starting to remember how much the end of the long New England winter sucks.  It's too chilly and dreary and muddy and gray to really enjoy being outside.  The cozy house is feeling a bit close and dull for all its occupants.  Snow is expected for my weekly commute to Baltimore. Blerg.

We are trying to keep our spirits up.  I made an omelet for brunch.  I put on a random Crosby, Stills, and Nash album that I always put on when we are stuck in the house. We've also been engaged in Operation Less Milk/Fewer Bottles, as well as Operation Fewer DVDs.  Both were relatively successful after an unpromising start that involved extensive toddler screaming.  After a productive hour of searching for LB's swimsuit, we may be ready for Operation Family Swim next week.

For the moment, life is messy.


  1. It's messy here too. We're in Operation Less DVDs too. And Operation No More Juice. Winter in New England is hard.

  2. And...we are apparently getting more snow. Are you guys getting hit in this storm? I think there's something about the end of winter/early spring that just lends itself to Operation Find-a-Way-to-Make-It-Better.
