February has been a weird month, too. On Friday I mailed off the paperwork for the Six Flags reading contest, so that’s done. And tomorrow is Dr. Suess’s birthday and my Read Across America program. I’ve got 5th graders going to all the pre-k, k, and 1st grade classes to read a Dr. Seuss book to them and help them finish Cat in the Hat hats we started last week. So that’s almost done, too. Those two things have taken up most of my work life lately, so I’ve got tons of processing and lesson plans to figure out now that they’re drawing to a close.

And there was a birthday and a funeral. I loved my 30th birthday, and I like being 30. But I’ve got the winter blues, and I’m ready for a change. Plus I’ve had crafter’s block for a while now, and my new shiny machine hasn’t helped me think of something fun to work on. I’ve been cooking like crazy, exploring new things. And that’s been good. But I’m looking out the window and it’s snowing again, first day of March. I need some spring fever!
