    March is finally here! That means that spring is around the corner, only about four more weeks of cold and I can't wait. I am planning my garden, I just wish the stores had more of their things out and on sale. I am wondering what you do if you live in a home with no yard. We have a small patio that only gets a short amount of morning sunlight so it is going to be a trick to get the garden how I want it.

    I am also realizing how close we are to the end of the year (and yet how far!!). That means job hunting and packing up all over again. That makes me sad, I am hoping they tell me I can stay before the year is over.

    I am most looking forward to:
    1. Planting my garden
    2. Cleaning the house from top to bottom
    3. Finishing my grad classes
    4. Going for walks outside - I might even take up runing or rollarblading on a regular basis, who knows!

    What about you?

    If the snow would melt off the patio that would also help the process move along...

    April.

    Sorry to sound so cynical, but Easter/Passover will be my first vacation of more than one day since October.

    I'm most looking forward to:

    1. Finding out I have a job for next school year.
    2. Planting my landscaping (the people before us obviously had no plan!)
    3. The warmer weather. We got a snapshot of it this weekend!
    4. Being able to exercise outside.

    dizzy, is your contract a temp one?

    I'm jealous! My daughter played competetive basketball and we always end up watching many of the March Madness games both at home and when we are away at tournaments.

    Two more school days until our break!!!

    1.) Warmer weather
    2.) Jobs slowly starting to post for next year(I'm job hunting)
