Hooray for March. Or, um, anyway, at least it isn't February.
My whine: Sore right hand and muscles on right side.
Anti-whine: Soreness is the result of a community service project I engaged in yesterday. By which I mean, I dug the ice away from the curb near the storm drain just uphill from my house. My motivation was not entirely community-oriented, I admit. The water that was trickling in a big circle around the storm drain was pooling in the slush next to my car door and I wanted it gone. I managed to make some headway by myself, but the ultimate raging success owed much to a neighbor who joined me, first with his own spade and then later with a large ice pick. The ice pick did the trick!
Bonus anti-whine: After nearly four years in this house, I now know the name of the man 3 houses west.
Bonus whine: Tonight's forecast is snow, ice pellets, and freezing rain.
Great big bonus anti-whine: Uccellina had the twins! She's already updated her first announcement with good news about Little Girl. Welcome, pixie twins!
