It's here! It's finally here!

No, not that, silly.  Spring!  It's here!  I'm so excited!  It's my favorite time of the year (allergies by damned) and now we have had two consecutive days of 60* weather.  Whoo hoo!  It's here!

Now comes the hard part.  I LOVE to spend money this time of year.  I want to buy plants for my flower boxes, veggies for my garden, fertilizer and crap for the weed infested yard that I inherited when I bought this house.  And I really want a little table and chairs and a grill for my patio out back.  It's not much to ask for, right?  Unless you are adopting.  Correction, unless you are adopting two kids and you are a single woman on a nurse's salary.  I know I can stay strong.  I know I can go without yet another year...or maybe I'll have to splurge a bit and spend some of my tax refund.  Yeah, maybe I can rationalize this out. 

My dad generously volunteered to pay for a storm door for the front of the house.  Currently, I don't have one.  And a neighbor that attends the same church as me generously offered to put it up.  And once I replace the drafty sliding glass door in the back of the house, this place will look pretty spiffy.  Yeah, things are looking brighter already.  Thank God I have people in my life that want to help.

I think I am going to have to cut back on the number of flowers I buy this year- boo!

This started as my story, but has evolved to OUR story. This is the story of life as a single parent to a wonderful little boy while we wait for baby sister. China LID 2.12.07.

But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day.
