Spring is here!

It's spring, y'all!  And even though it's cold today, I cannot be more excited about the change in season.  Like I've said before, spring to me symbolizes a new year - forget COLD January 1!  This time of year feels like new beginnings.  It may be 37 degrees today, but the sun is shining and I know in a few weeks, warmer temps will be the norm.

I hope to plant some things in my yard this spring, too.  My yard is SO boring.  No flowers or cute plants or anything. Sounds like a fun project for M and me.  I will also try convincing my husband to let ME cut the grass this year (or at least help him do it).  He usually pays someone to cut our grass (especially in the summer when the heat is crazy), but I think it's time we take our yard back. My MOM cuts her own grass and her yard is much bigger than ours, so I think we can handle it.  Plus, it's great exercise.

I've been reading the third book in the Fifty Shades series (which I'm enjoying), but am a little bummed that my loan period ends in less than 48 hours.  I'm only halfway through the book unfortunately -- I'm not sure I'll finish.  Every day I plan to go home, do my wife and motherly things, shower, and and then kick back and dig in to my readings. While that usually happens to an extent, by the time I read my daily devotional (which I have to read before I read anything else) I'm either too tired to read anymore.  Or I'm battling a four-year-old who is afraid of monsters in her room.

If I don't finish this book by the time my loan period ends, I'll just have to wait again (months!) to finish it - because I'm sure that's how long it will be before the book becomes available again.  Which is also the reason I'm reading the doggone thing waaaay after everyone else in the world has read it.  I just refuse to buy them, so I depend on my library (and it's crazy waiting lists) for books.

Anyhoo, spring also means it's March Madness time.  Got my bracket filled out and ready to go.  I don't give a flip about basketball until this time of year.  I actually do a bracket for basketball and football season. One of DK's coaching friends does a pool with friends and family, and DK and I always jump in. Unfortunately I never win, but my day is coming, y'all...(click the bracket to see it better)...

A lot of people are choosing Indiana to win it all (including President Obama), but I'm gonna be the odd one. I say Louisville. (And yes, I absolutely felt kinda smart when a co-worker showed me the president's bracket  -- AFTER I'd done mine -- and he and I had the same two teams in the final game.)

This is my first year posting my bracket on the blog, so I'm hoping that putting it out here will give me some luck! :-)

Last, but not least, spring time brings SPRING BREAK (which begins in two days)!  I look forward to spending time with our families and getting some sunshine. And of course spending longer days with my krew:

Have a great day, y'all!
