On The Bright Side of March...


In a desperate attempt to put the winter blahs behind me, I trying to look on the bright side of things and this is my attempt of looking for the positives in the month of March (in no particular order).

  • St. Patrick’s Day – What’s not to love about a day where you can drink green beer and kiss Irish people?

  • My Birthday – Also another day you can drink beer and kiss Irish people.

  • Mardis Gras -  Do you sense a pattern?  Another day to drink beer, but this time I don’t think you’re limited to just kissing the Irish.

  • Spring – The first day of Spring officially arrives – enough said.  No wait – WHOO HOOO!!!

  • Daylight Savings Time – More daylight!  Yeah!!!

  • Three Pay Checks – Bi-weekly pay periods are fantastic when you are blessed with three of them in one month.   What to buy? What bill to pay?

  • March Madness – I don’t really follow basketball any other time of year, but I am part of a “pool”, so I tend to pay a little more attention to what’s going on in March.

  • International Women’s Day – I’m actually attending a gala breakfast in recognition of this day.  I committed to going before I knew it started at 7:00 a.m. and will have to get up by 5:00 to make it on time.  Next time…I’ll ask for the details first.

  • Last but not least…a vacation.   Yes, I’m taking another vacation (next week).  I know, I know - that's all I do.  This one I can thank my income tax refund and the weekend hours I worked for my previous company, to be able to book a getaway.   Thank goodness for small miracles.  After this one – there will be no more vacations in my near future.  I need to get saving for “Philippines 2012 – Epic Dive Adventure 3.0”.

What’s on your bright side of March?

Nice list. That next vacation sounds amazing! I am so jealous! We were going to go to Vegas last fall if you remember but we ended up moving instead. I think we are going to try and go this fall.

I'm not sure what March will hold but hopefully if nothing else, less chaos for me. Hopefully our house will be put all togther by the end of the month!

Here's to beer of all colours and kissing! Thanks for looking at the bright side of an otherwise sloppy, gritty month.

March sounds like a full, fun month. Enjoy.

We have a Peppa Pig party to enjoy this week - our grand daughter will be 4! Of course, it will be held in a children's play area - at the local pub. We might manage a few drinks while we're there.
