take the good with the bad

good: spring is FINALLY here-we had a glorious weekend with lots of outside time. i even got to go running twice (good thing, since i signed up to do a 10K in a few weeks!)

bad: still have some chance of frost so i can't plant anything yet. and cleaning up the yard after winter is very hard work. i'm still sore from raking up sticks, leaves and old grass in the front yard and i'm not even halfway done!

good: we can actually go outside without a stitch of polar fleece on!

bad: no more shopping before picking up the girls at daycare. in the winter when it's about 30 outside, i can leave the groceries in the car for a long time with out worrying about spoilage. in the height of the summer? not so much. also garbage storage becomes more complicated, esp with things that have been stuck in the back of the fridge and are past their prime.

good: lawns are greeining up, buds are appearing, bulbs are sprouting.

bad: it's supposed to start raining tonight and continue for a couple of days.

good: days are getting longer, SAD is improving greatly!

bad: bug season approaching...and they LOVE me. we need a screen porch STAT!

good: air is getting less dyr which means i don't have to invest significant amounts of money in hand lotion

bad: air is getting more humid, which leads to toilet mildew in, i kid you not, a day or two.

heh heh

while researching what MB* stands for in the medical world, one of the options in the online acronym dictionary was "metric buttload". i think i will have to incoporate that into my lexicon.

*actual definition as it applied to my situation: Medici┬┤nae Baccalau┬┤reus (Bachelor of Medicine).

the gift of language

since i have a 5 year old and a (nearly) 3 year old, i try very hard not to swear at home. not that i swore much to begin with, but with the obvious parroting issues surrounding what parents say and what small children repeat, i'm sure you understand.

when i find something with a lot of swear words in it, i tend to giggle like a sixth grader at every "four letter" word. so that's why i find this video so freakin' hilarious. i hope you will too. (pretty clearly NSFW)

here's a helpful tip

whatever you do, don't listen to the storycorps podcast at work. unless your heart is made of stone, it will turn you into a blubbering mass of goo.
