Dear March of 2011,

You were a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month.  You were.  You know it.  You had so much potential to be awesome, but you failed.    Sure, you had brief moments of improvement, but then you'd go right back to being a big ol' meanie.  And I'm not just referring to the weather.  I could go into detail, but that would just be fuel on the fire.  I'm really,  REALLY over you.  And while I can move on to more pleasant times, you are stuck being March of 2011, in the record books, facing the pain and inconvenience you caused those who were only trying to live peaceful, happy lives.  If I could send you a bill for damages, I would.  And you wouldn't like it.

Screw you, March of 2011.
Good riddance.

Jill

P.S.  My dog doesn't like you either.  Consider yourself pooped on.

Whew.  That felt good.  As much as I'd love to leave it like that, for my own complete healing, I think it would be best to come up with just a few things that went well in March.  Hmmm....let me think...

Online purchases.  Yep.  I just couldn't seem to help myself. 1- Shoes, 2- Romper (not available?), 3- Socks, 4- Business Cards, 5- Tights...seems like there was more.

Thursday nights.  Steve and I have some friends over every Thursday for dinner and shows:  Survivor, Community, Star Trek: Next Generation (Netflicks), and whatever else looks interesting.  I tend to fall asleep ridiculously early, but nevertheless, it's a good time.

March Munchness.  Going out to lunch every Sunday at particular restaurants with proceeds going to the ABC Youth Choir.  Not sure that we made a whole lot of money, but it was fun and tasty.

Blogging.  I hit a good stride and taught myself some new (yet primitive) tricks this month.  Also, meeting these ladies was very fun and encouraging.  I met Dawn there (future blogger?) and we met up last Friday for blog-talk, dinner, and shopping.  We found in-season merchandise at J.Crew for $5!  I walked out with 2 sweaters, 2 pairs of pants and a belt all for under $22!  I'm not even lying.  Oh, and this super post from My Fair Lady completely made my day/week/year. *blushing*

Miles.  Graduated and since then has picked up a few more impressive skills.  Like, he learned how to ring a bell when he needs to go potty.  Though sometimes he does it just to see if he'll get a treat.  Lil' glutton.  We also signed him up for Advanced training, which he'll dominate, I'm sure.

See there now...there's always a silver lining and rough times always pass if you let them.  Consider that my Weekly Gratitude.

Welcome, April.  Please be nice.

Here, here! Work was really tough for me this month, there was the tsunami in Japan which overshadowed my small complaints and made me feel trivial, and it KEPT ON SNOWING all month long.
Hoping April is better!

March was pretty miserable for me as well. April is bound to be better!!
And ps. Those shoes are adorable and look super comfy. Might be ordering myself a pair for work this summer.

Here's hoping to a better April!

But, as a fellow [sometimes] Minnesotan (and fellow Jill!) how did you find in-season stuff at J.Crew for 5USD? And which J.Crew was this?! I'll be back in MN in a week and I cannot wait to visit J.Crew (pathetic? Maybe) but a J.Crew trip for 22USD--now that sounds like a good month to me!
