There is hope...

that spring is almost here.

Today was a lovely day.  So much so that, although I took my jacket with me when I went out, I quickly shed it.  I'm not sure just how warm it got today, but a medium-weight sweater was just enough and that gives me hope that it winter is almost over.

Technically, winter is almost over.  Tuesday is March 1 and that is the first day of meterological spring.  That makes it one of my most favorite days of the year!  While I was out today I saw a crocus in bloom.  Spring can't come fast enough for me.

The weekend has been nice.  The weather was good, I wasn't stressed out too much, and the weather was good.  The scale wasn't so good to me and I have decided to go back to old school Weight Watchers.  This new plan they have right now is too complicated for me--at least trying to follow it online it.  I am going back to what worked for me a few years ago.  I dug out all my old materials and found a notebook to write my food journal in.  That, along with being able to head back to the gym this week, should get me some results.  I have so many cute clothes that I haven't been able to wear and I have some brand new linen pants that, if I can't wear this spring/summer, I am going to HATE myself come fall.

I only had to work three days last week so the five day week looming before me seems particularly dreadful.  Trying to do the work of three other people besides doing my own job might just kill me before the end of the school year.  I have an "assistant" but how much help is it really when you have to go behind them to make sure it is done right? much as I want spring.....I think I want summer more.
