Hello, February

I have high hopes for you, February!

Every February I begin the month with excited anticipation of what Punxsutawney Phil has to say. Even though I know there are always six weeks (or more) of winter here in Very Northern Maine, I hope they will be gentle. This year, however, our prognosticating rodent says not so much. The days are getting longer, mornings are a little lighter. Superbowl Sunday is coming up and I live in Patriot Nation, so there is excitement surrounding that--to be honest, I'm more of a PuppyBowl fan--but I'll have the big game on in the background.

There will be the flurry of teen angst surrounding Valentine's Day. Who gets, who gives, and what color carnations will be bought and received causes high drama.

And then there is vacation! A whole, glorious week off!

So--I have high hopes!

I think if you have to be at school in the midst of all that teenage angst, you deserve at least two weeks off to recover! (But I am glad that you get one week and have that to look forward to.) Enjoy!
