Lousy Smarch Weather

Okay, it's only St. Patrick's Day, it's not supposed to be topping 85 degrees (it was over 95 last week). Gah. It jumped directly from coat to shorts weather in the span of about four days.

Of course, I have been doing the dance of "make it cool again in Phoenix," which has been to away the heaters and pack up the winter clothes, because that is a sure-fire method of holding back the heat for at least a few more weeks (or at least bringing back at least one more cold snap).

But speaking of St. Patrick's Day, Slainte! Hope it's a good one for everyone. Although I was just reading that the snakes are coming back to Ireland... the same way they're coming to the Florida Everglades, apparently (pets released by people who can't afford/don't want them anymore). And, as with the Everglades, these snakes have no natural predators.

I wanted to buy a bottle of Jameson's Irish Whiskey at Costco this weekend because it was an extremely good buy, but I didn't. I did buy a few pairs of jeans at Burlington, though.

Taking a page from cornerofmadness, I did a little de-cluttering: I finally chucked a brown paper bag full of brown paper bags in the recycling bin because seriously, we're never going to use them. I also decided I may never get back to size 8, so I weeded many pairs of pants out of my drawers so I could actually put away the clothes that fit me now. (Size 12/14.)

We keep going back and forth between temps in the 50s and snow, more of which is apparently supposed to fall tomorrow. Grrrr.

PS - I would kill to fit into a size 12 again. :-(

Well, there WAS some snow here, albeit not in THIS part of town!

I'd be happier if the sizes were at all consistent. I carry a bunch of size 12's into the dressing room and can't fit into any of them, then the size 14's are too big. :P

It's been a pretty nice spring, but way too short. It's going to be "cooler" this week -- low 80's instead of high 80's -- and I hope we can keep it at around there for at least a little while longer...

I haven't gotten rid of nearly enough yet.

I always told my ex-girlfriend that it's not the number. I'm a 22ish. I haven't been a 12 since high school. But it's a number. It's what fits my body right now. So I don't worry about it anymore because it's not worth stressing about.

Today, the high is going to be 89. Which is RIDONKULOUS for mid-march. The A/C is starting to no longer compensate for the heat, which is usually not a problem until late April. I blame Punxutawney Phil for the early spring. Jerk.

Don't the Irish have badgers? I would think that they might be somewhat predatory, though the Irish badger has NOTHING on the Honey Badger (if you can deal with lots of cursing, watch the Honey Badger youtube video, it's hilarious).

I'm generally speaking more concerned about the fact that I have a bureau and a closet full of clothes which I bought and I love that I would dearly like to fit into again, whether size 10 or size 6 (which I got into briefly).

It is ridiculously hot again today.

I honestly have no idea. I just read this article. I blathered more than I perhaps should have done. :)
