March On

I can't really express to you how excited I am to finally be in the month of March. This morning as I took Emma to school, she commented on how many birds were around. It's a wonderful sign! Spring won't be long off now, I'm sure.

This also means Sean only has 1 month left of this semester, which I know he'll be glad to have behind him. Turns out a 20 year gap between Calculus classes can make for a bit of a challenge. Next semester will be at the University Of Utah, and into his accounting program, which will be a nice change from having to take all the odd prerequisites like Basic Computers and Health and Nutrition.

March also reminds me that it's been nearly a year since I went back to doing hair. How this year has flown! I've made so many friends and wonderful clients, and I'm reminded each day how much I love my job. I'm very grateful I have this skill to use to support my family.

On a bit of less exciting note, I have officially failed at my first 2 months of running 26.2 miles. Wow. What a bummer. But I'm not giving up! I'm keeping my running log over there on my sidebar, and I'm sure one of these months I'll actually hit my goal. Now that the inversion is clearing and the weather is warming up, I'll have 2 less excuses for not going.

All in all, I'm pretty ready to get my March on. Can't you tell?

I think it's crazy that people even go outside in Utah during the winter, let alone go running in that ridiculous weather. Give yourself a break-it's not your fault you couldn't run-it's Utah's!
Oh and PS, Sorry we never made it over while we were up there...I don't know what happened to all the time:)

I was thinking how it's March and there are few if any birthdays in our family in March - at least among the children of Bob and Mary and the children and grandchildren of Harry and Barb.

Just an observation. It's actually a bit chillier here - we kind of reverse our seasons sometimes!

yay for birds chirping, sean finishing up his semester (calculus totally sucks), and that's awesome you love your job- there is nothing better, okay some things better, but loving going to work is amazing. i need to get back to running too. i ran 50 miles in jan- (i was uber motivated for hawaii) and ran a measly 10 miles, if that in feb. oops.
