So, yesterday, I was all happy and cheery because it finally started to feel like Spring.

But in the later afternoon, as I was sitting in my office, I happened to look out the window. Snow was falling.


It started coming down a little harder. And then, as quickly as it started, it stopped.

Very strange.

I feel kind of bad, posting on Good Friday. Me entire childhood, I wasn't allowed to do anything on Good Friday - no tv, no radio, no jokes, no rollerskating. No unnecessary lights on. No unnecessary speaking. Codfish for dinner. It was the way my family observed.

It feels so wrong - to be using technology today. But nothing is like is used to me. I have to work. There's no observance anymore.

For my Christian readers out there - how has Good Friday changed for you?

My family didn't ever celebrate Good Friday, but our Sundays were always boring like that. It wouldn't be bad once a year.

I spent the day wanting to pull my hair out. Lexi came to work with me b/c the daycare was closed. Keeping her quiet & not wrecking my office is tough.

Life changes. Like the old saying goes, the only thing constant is change. I always try to embrace the new rather than miss the old. I can't say that I'm always sucessful, but I try.
