The weather here has turned upside down. This March was the warmest March in recorded history here. It was 12 degrees above normal. We even had hot and muggy days around 90. The past 2 days have mirrored our typical April. It got near to freezing on both nights. There was wide spread frost. We had to take our transplants in every night and cover the other tender plants with floating ground cover. My husband is always irritated by this.

On Tuesday I finally finished my son's taxes and our and got them ready to mail. It was a relief to get it over with. My husband continued to gather information for his mom's taxes.

On Wednesday I got my bills ready, my grocery list ready, and went to town to do errands and shopping. I picked up our mail and mailed our taxes at the post office, I went to the newspaper office, the accountants office, the power co-op, the bank. And then went to CVS, Walgreen's, Aldi, Kroger, and Wal-mart. My son was still home when I got done and he helped me unload everything and put it away.

Today I didn't feel well and I spent most of the morning in bed. My hubby got some important estate papers or I wouldn't have even gone to get the mail. I fed Baby and she came and ate today at least.
I managed to get some work done and fix a real meal. Hubby and I are still forcing ourselves to walk every day.

    Taxes...such a pain. As I get older, I am less interested in getting them done and out of the way than I used to be. Today, I got Mitchell to come over and finish his younger brothers and sister's state taxes done. I did the federal ones some time ago and then I just let it all go. I got to thinking a few days ago about the fact that they needed to be finished and since I knew that I had a lot of homework to do, I called out the cavalry this weekend to help me out.

    I've been feeling yucky this week too. I don't know if it is stress induced, weather induced or something else altogether. For both our sakes, I hope it is gone before another day passes.
    Take care!

    I heard on the news here in Austin that it has been THE hottest March on record in the past 30 worries scientists.

    I can tell I'm gonna be in for one HOT summer! I think I'll be using my pool more this year.

    Your weather description sounds like mine in NC e-x-a-c-t-l-y. It's weird, isn't it?

    Good for you for walking!!

    Wish I could say that this was a consistently warm March BUT we need the rain/ snow/ mixed precipitation. We didn't get all that much snow last winter which was in total contrast to the winter before.

    I am also glad you are getting the walk in but I hope you get some time to yourself-you deserve it. emoticon

    I'm a bit jealous of your nightly walks with the hubby. emoticon These days I get to see my BF for about a half hour to an hour (if I stay up late) at night -- just long enough to shove the poor guy's dinner down his throat the second he walks in and then get myself to bed. Blah!

    Our weather is much the same here in Maryland though they are calling for warmer weather by Sunday. It is great that you are keeping up with your walking. I have been fighting some of that blah feeling myself and getting back to my exercise has definitely helped. I was also struggling with my eating, or rather struggling with NOT eating. If it wasn't nailed down it was in my mouth. I am thankfully back on plan now.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Our Sunday is supposed to be in the lower 80's! I can hardly wait!
    The weather has been screwy for everybody.
    2846 days ago
    Our weather has been cool (cold), too! It's quite a shock following such a warm March! But, I guess it's supposed to soar back up to 80s over the weekend and the first of next week. Crazy! I'm sorry you're not feeling well. You have just been under so much stress and so busy. Maybe you can slow down a bit this weekend? (are you laughing at this suggestion right now?) Thinking of you!

    You need to rest and take care of yourself! You'll have to give yourself a mini vacation right where you are! LOL

    I hope that you find time to take care of you and your health. You as a nurse know that saying take care of the caregiver or she is of no use to others. HUGs and wow your MIL had a lot to do with her estate. My mum passed 3 years ago and we had nothing to do, now granted dad is still here and they had allready sold their house.
    HUGS and yea our weather has been worse since those 3 hot days end of Feb.

    You sure got a lot done. Wow. Though, I think others are right about rest. It makes a world of difference. I did not get good rest this week and I was under the weather. Though, last night I got to bed earlier and woke up early. It made me feel so much better. I feel perky again. I can not wait to go out and walk. We are going to have 60 degree temps today and I am so happy that it will be a nice day. I hope you get recharged. Wishing you well and sending you love, light and peace. Yours, Karen emoticon

    You did so much work and so much running around that your body probably needs a good rest. Thank goodness for your son helping you unload and upload everything. Hopefully you'll feel better in the morning. emoticon emoticon
