Same As the First


I have a co-worker who refers to March as "Drag Month." Not in a RuPaul sort of way, but in that it seems to take forever. And while I would not disagree with someone's lived experience, I also can't claim that it has been mine. I suspect this particular version of March will pass by in a blur.

However, there are those individual days throughout the year that seem to go on forever. Whether it is the number of meetings, fatigue from managing the "spring forward" time change (Coming soon!), or the ramp up to the end of the school year with all of the testing and faldaral, it can feel like running a marathon on a treadmill. I am the Red Queen who exorts Alice to run as fast as she can just to stay in the exact same place.

I have a few of these sorts of days sprinkled into my next two weeks. I'll catch my breath and then experience several more in April. I'm hoping that by the time May rolls around, the pedal will be moving slightly further away from the metal. Until then, I'll make sure to eat my Wheaties.

This year, I am selecting a tweet from a list provided each day by On This Day as a prompt to get back into blogging.  You can see my full list of tweets posted on this day, or start seeing your own by following that account.
