Welcome to February

Hurry, come in sit down, grab your pencils and score cards, there is a lot to pack into this short month. Ready?, February 1st

Super Bowl Sunday, just putting that out there for any of my followers that might live under a rock. Some time around 5 PM CST the Pittsburgh Steelers kickoff against the Arizona Cardinals. I will most likely be confined to my room watching Damages and General Hospital, madly running down thirteen stairs every time Whynot yells, "it's a commercial!"

Monday, February 2nd

Ground Hog Day. The day that little bastard lovable, furry creature, Phil from Punxsutawney determines whether we have 6 more weeks of winter or if spring, in all it's warmth and glory will arrive in six weeks. Yeah I don't get that either, but I play along, for the kids. TOF and I will be making a craft of some sort.

Tuesday, February 10th

Big Mouse's (aka the Prodigal Son) Birthday. Which coincidentally is the very same day that I will celebrate the 24th anniversary of motherhood.

Saturday, February 14th

Valentine's Day. Another one of those Hallmark holidays that leaves me slightly disappointed. Somebody please email Whynot and remind him!

Sunday, February 15th

Ninny's Birthday. Ninny (seriously, that's what the kids call her. She didn't want to be Grandma, she wanted to be Nanny, but when Big Mouse was little he said Ninny and Ninny stuck.)(Thank you TOF for saying Mema and not something objectionable) Anyway, Ninny is my former MIL, that during my entire seven year marriage to her son called me RUTH, (my name is Rita.) I need to remind Glitter Gurl to send a card and call her grandmother on her birthday. This I can remember, so why is so hard to fill up with gas or thaw something that will resemble dinner?

Sunday, February 22nd

Two birthday's today! My best friend Judy will turn 47. (Please note that I am still 46 until October.) The second birthday is TOF's Birthday. Funny coincidence again, it's the THIRD anniversary of my Mema Hood.

Other significant days scattered throughout the month include Abraham Lincoln's Birthday, (celebrated in NJ, MO, NY, CT, CA, IL) Presidents' Day, George Washington's Birthday, Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday.

February is also Blog Luv Comment Month.

When you see this button, leave some love, starting with me!

Hey- I'm passing on the Life is Grand award to you.
All you need to do, if you want to, is list 5 reasons why life is grand and then pass it on.

I don't like February. LOL But I'm glad you have things to look forward to!

Happy February! My mom didn't want to be grandma or granny, so she got MeMaw. Yeah, like He Haw only with M's. Ty couldn't say "Mom-Mom" quite right, and it came out as MeMaw and stuck.

I think I would prefer Ninny.

Leah said...

Wow, Feb's a busy month for you!

Happy Birthday to all the birthday people and Happy Anniversary for those mom/meme dates.

and LOL about remembering about your ex-MIL's birthday over thawing meat for dinner!! Isn't it funny the stuff that finds it's way to the surface of our brains and the things that don't??

You do have a busy month ahead!

And it's my little guy's 11th birthday on the 21st, and my best friend's bday on the 9th, and and and...

Lola said...

Busy month even though it's so short.

Any chance Pux Phil will NOT see his shadow? I've had enough of winter already.

MIL are great aren't they? At least your former MIL called you a civil name. My former MIL called me a b'word that rhymes with "itch". I would definitely have taken Ruth any day. LOL! Kudos to you for gently reminding your children to refer to her as Grandmother. LMAO!
