I started writing this post on Friday night, but finally gave up, due to my headache and runny nose and general lack of concentration and wittiness. So I am finishing it up now, on Monday. I don’t know what’s up with me and writing half a blog post and then stopping. Maybe someday I will be able to sit down and write a full post in one sitting again.
Well, I was going to go to church tonight (Friday night). But there has been a change of plans, and now I am at home doing a blog post instead. Never fear, though! I am going to church tomorrow night instead!
As for tonight… tonight, I shall write all about the month of March and then I will go to sleep, because guess what? When you are asleep, you don’t have to blow your nose. And I am sick of blowing my nose and constantly feeling like I’m going to sneeze.
I took a picture for you all:
I’m sorry that that was the very first picture! I thought we should get it out of the way first, and then move on to happier things.
the time that Trisha and I went for a Sunday afternoon drive!
And the time that Meg and I went out for Valentine’s Day (about a month late):
This March, for the very first time in my life, I went to a Target that is in Canada. In Guelph. I was quite disappointed, actually. But I think that they might have still been in the process of stocking the store. Unless the shelves were supposed to be so empty…. But despite my disappointment, I did manage to find one thing that I liked.
And some quotes from around here:
Me (driving home after eating supper): I think that was a dead raccoon on the road. Kenton: I think it was a cat. Me: No, pretty sure it was a raccoon. Kenton: I don’t know… Me: Curt, what do you think it was? Curt: A big mouse.
And there was the time before I had my interview at school, and I just didn’t know what to wear, so I asked Mom what I should wear. She gave me some very helpful advice. She said, “Wear something nice, dear! With a sweater!” Thanks, Mom. =)
Then there was the day that I was grumpy, and Kenton said, “Wow. Someone put on her grumpy dress this morning.” That almost made me feel not quite so grumpy anymore, because it was funny, and I wanted to laugh.
Mom: “I did try to buy the hockey bunny! It was just the wrong hockey bunny!” There is just too much background there to even explain! But it made me laugh.
I learned some things in March. Mainly from Jason. Hopping is a national sport in Nicaragua. In fact, hopping was invented in Nicaragua. Did you know? Betcha didn’t. Everyone there hops. They don’t even have a word for walking. Tigger was actually Nicaraguan. I learn so much from Jason!
And while I was chatting with Jason, a message from Renee popped up. She didn’t say much. She just said, “We are never ever ever getting back together.” Thanks, Renee. It’s crazy how just reading one line from a song like that can get the song stuck in your head for the next few hours.
What else happened in March?
Well, I decided to become a teacher!
And there was Easter weekend. Good Friday was lovely! Church in a beautiful sanctuary (with good acoustics! ;)), lunch with friends, and then a beautiful walk with Trish. My favourite part was when we sat on a bench in the warm sunshine and talked for a long time. I said wise things like, “This has to be taken completely out of context.” Also, we have Christmas and Easter plans together for the rest of our lives. It’s gonna be awesome. 😉
And you all know about my Saturday. It was great.
And then there was Sunday. Sunday was so nice. There was Easter caroling, and breakfast, and church, and lunch, and pictures.
As well as chocolate bunnies, and Northanger Abbey, and a nap, and then church (such good church!), and then talking to friends (can I get a Ben Ch Ee, anyone? Meg, Jamie? :)) and math jokes and people asking eachother if they buy their groceries in town.
And then I went to Meg’s house for the night. It was quite a wonderful way to end March. There was various kinds of Easter candy there, and an aca-awesome movie, and lots and lots of talking. Oh! And I had a dream about me and Meg that involved bacon and scalloped potatoes and salad and a Steaming Nostril bike race. And then there was more talking. And then I left. And then I went back, because I had forgotten something. When I got home, my chocolate bunny and I had a very happy reunion.
So that was March. A month of very big things and very small things.
I’m looking forward to finding out what April will be like.
At this point I have approximately no open weekends anymore, and lots of stuff happening in between the weekends. So hopefully I will make it through.
My brother is going to go away for a WHOLE WEEK sometime this month.
I don’t think I’m ready for this.
