Does this mean winter is over??


Happy March 1st!!

Thank god February is over, though this month in many ways has been amazing for me, it's also been very, very stressful and cold, and icy. So, seeing March finally be upon us, well....I could not be happier.

March is a big month...we now have only about 6 weeks until the wedding which means I NEED to get my dress altered ASAP, it also means I need to start working out again no matter what. You see having this puppy has f-ed with my whole schedule, puppy time takes up the time I would have been blogging or working out...and my workload has been so high that working out when I should be working, well....could not happen.

Now, I have been running with the dog and dancing while playing with the dog so I have not been overly sluggish so I am not feeling too guilty.

This month also brings about the mean cheese's birthday AND one of my bubs and I's many anniversaries....yup it will be 4 years since the "official" beginning of our relationship, not really counting the months of grey area before that or the 12 years of on again off again pain and suffering.

Also this month I must (MUST) finish my taxes...ugh

so with all of this in front of me (minus the taxes) I am hoping that things will seem a touch brighter, you see this awful weather and almost constant darkness has taken a bit of a toll, the seasonal depression has been plaguing me and all I ever want to do is sleep, though the fact that my bubs and I have been collectively sick for a while does not help either.

Anyway, I am determined to do it all, work a lot, blog, exercise, take care of the puppy and do my taxes...also enjoy life....that needs to be in there, because my bubs and I have the tendency not to do that, we go through life, we work, we work...we enjoy each other, but there is always this pressure about needing to be working, well I am really hoping that with spring, that we will stop and smell the roses again.

ok, now to work, to work.....

picture today is of several new art cards, some have already been listed, some already sold.

I'm glad that your business is all good stuff!

Since you're so busy right now, you'll appareciate it even more when life slows back down (in a good way). I promise :)

Take each thing one step at a time and it will all get done!

We just had 6 more inches of snow last night--I am ready for Spring in a big way!

You really summed it up perfectly here. March is going to be a busy month, but hopefully the weather will break which for me, at least, makes things sooooo much easier to deal with.

And congrats!! Didn't know you were getting married!! Yes, plenty to do, plenty to do...I'm getting my taxes done on Monday; the pain is preparing for it, the relief is knowing that within 72 hours, I'll no longer have to stress about them for another year.

A whirlwind spring is in store for you which will make it seem like the sunshine comes all that much faster :) Always enjoy updates no matter how far between, just get some rest & stay healthy so you can actually SMELL those roses girl!

I agree, February was long and bothersome, for no reason other than it was cold and dark and great fodder for Seasonal Affective Disorder. I want sunshine!

I didn't realize that it was March 1 until I saw this post from you just now. So weird!

It is so good to see a post from you! Yay! I've not had a blog post in me in ages. I just am so out of the mood. Maybe I'll muster something up soon.

Love you dear! xoxoxo... :)

Taking time to smell the roses is important. Mr Meringue and I have talked about how we really need to start doing that again. It's so easy to get caught up in work.
Good luck with the wedding prep!

I totally need to do the shed the winter pounds thing too. I hope the warm weather of today will be a bit of an inspiration.
