Spring is here.

I am so discouraged. It feels like we are never going to get past this cold late-winter weather. I made the mistake of looking at the forecast for the next two weeks, and it doesn't look like it is going to get warmer any time soon. This has me in such a funk.

Coupled with the fact that all four in ourfamily have colds, to varying degrees, I am really struggling to maintain my composure. Nigel and Nora were both up at 3:30, after waking each other. It took over an hour to get Nigel back to sleep. I haven't slept more than 2 hours straight in 3 days. I snapped at Nora first thing this morning. Great way to start the day, huh?

I soooo need to turn my kids loose outside and just sit and dig my fingers into the grass. And I need sun on my face. And I need to look at flowers blooming. And to open the windows in the house and let the fresh air in. To hang the laundry on a line to dry.

To wear only one layer of clothing.

I know that the air will eventually warm, but I am impatient. I want to act like a 3-year-old and stomp my foot and demand that it be sunny. Ya think that would work?

Celebrity "What were they thinking"??

I don't normally blog about fashion. BUT, Charlize Theron's hairdo (I am not even giong to critique the dress) at the Oscars last night looked like she might have stolen it from Marion Mercer in 1981's TV hit It's a Living. D'ya think her stylist went to the hair people and said, "Hey, here's a thought -- Let's make one of the prettiest women in Hollywood look like a 55-year-old lady."

But then again, wasn't Charlize the one who showed up looking as orange as an Oompa-Loompa at the 2004 Academy Awards, after a horrible spray-on tan incident? Maybe she's just got a whimsical streak.
