Why I Am Glad We Are Nearing the End of This Month…
January is cold, dreary, and usually pretty boring. Yeah, that’s the problem with January. Of course, there are no birthdays in our family in the month of January, and if there were, I’m sure that would change things. But if you think about it, there is something to look forward to every other month of the year, even if you don’t count birthdays….
February has Valentine’s Day, and even if you don’t celebrate that holiday, I still look forward to the awesome chocolate available and the excuse to go out without the kids.
March usually includes Spring Break and sometimes Easter.
April sometimes has Easter, but the weather is starting to get a little nicer and not so cold more consistently than before (at least where I live).
May has Mother’s Day and Memorial Day and the weather is usually really nice.
June is the start of the summer and what everyone is looking forward to. Father’s Day is also in June.
In July we celebrate Independence Day and have more warm/hot weather, and it is a prime time for cookouts and get-togethers
August brings more opportunities for get-togethers and trips to the pool. It is also when school usually starts.
September has Labor Day and the beginning of fall weather.
October is jam-packed (for us) because my husband celebrates his birthday this month, and we celebrate our anniversary. There are bonfires to go to and pumpkin patches to visit. The weather is usually absolutely wonderful and at the end of the month, we do Halloween. October is probably my favorite month.
Thanksgiving is in November and everything seems to move at lightning speed once that holiday is over.
December is full of holiday parties, my birthday, St. Nick’s Day (which we celebrate), and of course, Christmas.
It seems as if the whole month of December is spent building up to Christmas and then New Year’s Eve, and then once we get past New Year’s Day, there is the vast 31-day hole that is January…
Yeah, that’s the problem with January.
That being said, this January hasn’t been too horrible, mostly because I’ve been prepared for it. We have been trying to do some fun things inside to keep us all from going crazy! Plus, I have these two little crazy kids to keep me entertained!
What’s your least favorite and favorite month of the year?
