The Merry Muddy Month of March

March is National Optimist Month. Pray tell how that happened? It happened because it is the month we need optimism.
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.  A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.  ~Bill Vaughan. As far as the month of March, what is your side of the story?

March is the month you finally realize the playground set you bought on sale in September, is still in the yard. 
Not to mention every sort of excrement; like a Whitman's sampler, has been flash frozen since November, and is ready decompose.
And the missing mailbox, is found down the road, with last months bills still sealed in their envelopes, along with water logged catalogs that have lost their sales appeal. 
And March is the month that you have a robin siting, it is a glorious site, you call your friends, but day after day, you witness the robins fighting for bare ground, over and over again amid the ongoing snow falls. It is just too much heartache to watch, so you put in a good movie instead..
 Freeze, thaw, freeze, thaw, mud, mud, and more mud, no matter how hard you try to clean, It is dirty again. So let it happen until it stops happening.
Our complexion is pale, and our spirits are weak; we actually welcome the Jehovah witnesses to our door. Anyone with a few inspiring words is welcomed.
Those seeds that were so awe inspiring in January, now look burdensome, as if to go from shoveling snow to digging in the dirt; with no rest in between, where is the humanity? 
And they say we earned an extra hour of daylight. We're just witnessing extra hours of dreaded spring trying to seek its way into our hearts. The torture of it all?

Yea, I'll wrap this up quick....
If you are an optimist, you are staying UP to see spring happen, and if you are a pessimist, like me, you are staying UP to make sure it is over!
