Early March

It’s national pound cake day. And grammar day. And four other “national” days. Did you know that pretty much every day is a national something day? Check it out:  http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/

I like the idea of finding something to celebrate every day because I like looking forward to things. There are not enough celebrations in life. I am looking forward to the weekend; we are going to a beer festival in Madison, WI with a bunch of friends. It’s not the drinking of beer as much as the getting away that I’m itching for. Well, that and the fact that we haven’t spent much time with our friends this winter. Since math dinner crew disbanded and Patrick’s closest friend moved to a different state, we’ve spent most of our time huddled in front of the tv at home, binge watching one show or another. These days it’s Battlestar Galactica and we’re almost finished. But at the end of winter I’m always feeling antsy to move beyond the walls of home, so I’m grateful for a quick excursion.
