Rainy (Make That Snowy) Days and Mondays

Here it is... March 18, just 3 days from the vernal equinox and what is the weather like outside? It was SNOWING today.  I know that snow after St. Patrick's Day is not unheard of here in the Chicago area, but gosh darn it, I'm ready for SPRING!

And why is it that gray days, whether rainy or snowy, are so much worse on Mondays?  It's so bad that Karen Carpenter famously sang about how rainy days and Mondays always got her down:
I have to say... there are Mondays when I get to school and play this song because it just fits my mood. Today was one of those days.  I had a pile of work to get done before I led a book study after school.  I still have more to do for some meetings I need to lead tomorrow.  It's March and snowing and my kids are crabby and we all need spring break!

I tell ya... on Friday afternoon I'll be feeling this:

Thanks for indulging my fondess for the Carpenters.  Now you all know the true extent of my nerdiness.

  1. I felt this way too and the temperature later this week is supposed to dip so that there are wind chills below zero overnight! I am so over winter and feeling super crabby today. We have parent conferences this week and another week until Spring Break...we are so ready for break! I hope Tuesday is better for you and you can get to that Friday feeling quickly! (P.S. I am a nerdy music fan too)
