Are you kidding me? A windchill of -30? In March? That's it. I quit.

I have never been more ready for spring. Usually, I try not to complain about the weather. What do I expect? I live in Saskatchewan where it's stupidly cold in the winter, freakishly hot in the summer, and spring and autumn are lovely and last 2 weeks each.

But this past month at work has sucked big time. I've had to sit and watch wonderful co-workers and dear friends get laid off, and every day I wonder anxiously when I'm next.

I'm SO ready for one of the coldest winters in 30 years to end. My whole body is aching for above 0 temperatures. I want to shrug off this parka and kick off these Sorels and run free in the muddy, flooded streets!

I want to gulp down too many pints of Grasshopper on the patio of my favourite watering hole!

I want to see the trees and shrubs blush green again!

I feel like a 3-year-old having a temper tantrum in the middle of the cereal aisle at the grocery store but I don't care. I'm on strike against the weather - who's in?

(Yes, I just wrote a whole post about the weather. So? If I was in an elevator with you, I'd ask if it was cold enough for you, too. Deal.)

Yes, I am alive

I've been hibernating the past couple of months and being a bad, bad blogger.

Thanks to those of you who check back from time to time to see if there's anything new. And thanks to those followers who remain followers. Love you! Here. Have this delightful video as my apology. I'll be back soon.
