Happy First Day of Spring

Well, happy first day of spring! What a beginning. I was woken at 1:12a.m. to the sound of my son... um... well... not feeling so well and unfortunately his unwellness did not make it to the bathroom. A little over an hour later, I was able to climb back into bed. Tossed, turned ahhhh. Finally, I am just drifting off to sleep and hear a strange rustling sound. I go out to the kitchen to see my two cats plotting and conspiring. "Hey, if we go to that cloth gingerbread man stuffed with her plastic grocery bags and pull them all out she'll get up again and I'm pretty sure she'll play with us. It's not like she's doing anything." I get the look from them, you know, the I have know idea how that happened look. I get back to bed, well after three. (making sure to turn the alarm off) Spend the rest of the night, awake, asleep, awake, asleep. I am awoken to the sound of laughter and the t.v. I go out... it is 7:30 am. There is my son, wide awake, bright glowing eyes, laughing his BUTT off at Bugs Bunny. Oh my goodness. "Remember the rule when we wake up early dear? Close my door and keep the volume down." Well, when I finally get up, to the dull rainy day, I start ringing out the things I left soaking in the tub. Oh, I should have had my breakfast first before I started this task, I think to myself, when I am almost done. I realize, hey, it is spring, sunny days are sure to be ahead now. (Yes, I am A.D.D., thanks for asking.)So, I give a shout out to my daughter (who was kind enough to get up and help in the night with out being asked) Happy First Day of Spring. "Oh, Mom", she replied. Then we laughed and laughed and laughed.


  1. I hope that you had a better night last night! The tulips are lovely - the one on the right has a wonderful sheen.

  2. Hi Florence - This is lovely! And I really like your cat drawing too. Thanks for the comment you left for me. I really appreciate the encouragement.
