Spring Has Arrived! *bounce bounce*

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

*bounce bounce bounce*

I love love LOVE spring! It is absolutely my favorite season, especially here in Texas, because it's when the weather is the most ideal to me. Everything is coming back to life, including ME! And my trees! I just love the cute new buds sprouting on the tree branches in my yard. I love seeing new growth on our baby peach tree and baby oak tree. I love to see the yucky brown grass turn green again, even if it does mean I have to do yard work again.

I've been in a really bad funk for the past few months, some of it was probably winter blues but a lot of it was the fact that I just have no freakin' idea what my financial future holds. Well, I've been getting a lot of hours at work and as long as that keeps happening, my pay combined with the roommate's piddly VA disability (it really is SAD how little he gets for the commitment he made to this country for years!! It covers HALF our house payment and that is IT) and our remaining savings to help us out, we should be okay. We can just barely afford our monthly bills, as long as we keep the eating out to a minimum and the unnecessary food buying to a minimum at the grocery store. I feel good about things for now. It'd be better if he could actually get a damn job! But that's another gripe for another time or never (he's trying, he's just not getting anything, sigh).

Aaaanyway... spring yep, it's here! I'm back and while I want to throw myself back into sparking (as in the social aspects of the site) I am going to try to take baby steps because otherwise I will spend most of my day here, catching up, instead of living life! I need to take a walk, it's so freakin' beautiful outside. Going to try for 30 consecutive minutes today, maybe longer!

I want a hair cut, too. I haven't had it cut in almost a year. I'm just so lazy, I hate going to get it taken care of, lol. I will, though, I'm sick of the length! Soon. Like, tomorrow!

Another thing I love about spring? Strawberries are so pretty!! Over the winter they were just yuck, but I bought some big beauties yesterday. I need to go slice them up for snacking! Ahhh, have I mentioned how ALIVE I feel in the spring? I truly need to live where it is spring year-round or at least 9 months out of the year.
