The third month of the year.
Also, the first day of Lent and I may not be religious, but I’m big on practicing deprivation. Does that sound weird? No matter, it’s true. I like to give something up for periods of time and see what happens. When I was a kid, we always had Pancake Tuesday. Now that I’m an adult, I do Lent. (I’m not that into pancakes.)
This is the month when we will move into our new place!
This is the month when we will send out wedding invitations!
This is the month when we will have fewer plans than normal!
This moving thing is taking a lot of our energy and attention and that’s mostly in good ways. We knew we were moving more than two months before we did so it’s been a little agonizing being excited to get to the new place, but having to wait so long to make it happen.
I have vacation this month. Twice, in fact. One week next week, two (very busy) weeks back in the office, and then another week again.
In the midst of all the packing and the cleaning and the decluttering and the unpacking, we’re also going to try to have some fun…
- Start tomato seeds
- Celebrate St Patrick’s Day
- Visit the library
- Run 25km
- Clear out my remote garden
- Order wedding invitations
- Secure wedding photographer
- Read two books
- Plan first dinner party in the new place
- Write! Write! Write!
What do you have planned for March? What are you looking forward to?
In a move that is completely to an OCD freak like me, I am taking an absurdly long time to unpack. First I wasn’t doing anything because painting wasn’t finished, then all my stuff wasn’t here so it was hard to pick a place for things to go with the rooms/furniture/storage not in the right spot. and now I’m trying to work (busy week) and unpack at the same time and it’s not really happening. Biggest shock is that I’m pretty ok with how slow it’s all going.
Enjoy your move and vacation time, and all the other fun stuff on your list 🙂
