It's official!  Spring has come.  But with snow showers, cloudy skies and general brown and grey scenery, the only thing to convince me of it is the start of spring sports.  This week I began the endless drop off and pick up and sit around waiting for practice to end.  I don't mind, though.  I love lacrosse.  Even if I can't get any of my girls into it yet.

I've had one of those weeks when I feel like I am in perpetual motion, and yet feel as though I'm not actually accomplishing anything.  And my back has been killing me.

I picked up the book Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald at the library and fully intended to continue my streak of accomplishing nothing by ignoring everything to finish it today.  But the sun is actually coming out and the sky is I don't know if I'll succeed.

I've been sleeping horribly.

In general, I'm a bit of a grouch!  But, I think things will pick up next week.  Perhaps I need to make a date with my husband to see The Grand Budapest Hotel this weekend.  I'm a huge Wes Anderson fan.  Anyone seen it?

Have a great weekend!

And for the anonymous poster who seems real (versus my mountainous pile of incoming spam) we ordered the Corley sofa from Ashley Furniture.

It will be a nice spring day here today, but cold will be back for the weekend. I'm ready for some consistent good weather. My kids are grown and married now, but I do miss soccer and football games. Nice Pic!

Thank you for stopping by and wishing me well. Even if you are feeling grouchy. :)

My back has been killing me, too & I haven't been sleeping well, either!
Spring is here & we had serious snowfall today, too.
That's a fantastic photo!

We had a really gray and gloomy day on Wednesday and then Thursday and Friday the sun shone, what a difference in my attitude.

So sorry about your back Brandi -- I know all about back issues. Mine has been feeling a bit better the past few days and I have no idea why.

Neat photo, but I admit I know nothing about lacrosse.

Hope you get some rest this weekend. xo
