The April Attitude Adjustment has been going remarkably well thus far. I went a whole week without complaining about being tired. Taxes are done; kind of glad we put it off because, for the first time, we owe some $. I got a hair cut, eyebrows waxed, pedicure, and bought some nice spring clothes & shoes (I took a day off this week). Last weekend was lovely, lots of outdoor time! I give full credit to the weather, its harder to be grumpy and lethargic when the whole world is blooming.
Today may break my streak, however. Its drizzly and gross. L has a fever. He's asymptomatic, so he's going to school. We were abruptly awoken last night by intermittent piercing shrieks...took as about an hour of messing with the CO2 monitor (and sleeping in between beeps) to realize it was the FIRE ALARM when all the ones in the house went off together and we ran downstairs, grabbed the sleeping kids, were heading out the door, and realized it had stopped. Another hour to let the adrenaline levels drop so we could fall asleep again, and morning came too soon.
I am looking forward to the weekend. Some things I want to do with the kids (dinosaur museum! park!), and for myself (basil seeds! window box flowers! tomato plants!) and maybe (please?) some rest for all of us.
