You know how I know it’s spring? Because my clocks sprang forward last weekend and now everything’s all whucked up. Maybe the season doesn’t officially start until the Vernal Equinox but to me, it’s already spring. The flowers are blooming, the weather is beautiful (at least for the next 15 minutes), and the pollen count is rising.

Aaaahhhhh… Breathe it in.

I love this time of year, but I’d be lying if I didn’t share with you the 9 reasons why it’s not even officially Spring yet and it’s already kicking my ass.

Spring has Sprung And So Has the Work!

Spring Forward and Never Sleep Again

My children seem to think that just because the clock has changed an hour that any semblance of a bedtime schedule no longer applies to them. I don’t understand. Yes, it is lighter out at dinner than it was yesterday, but it is still dark when you need to be in bed. So please go to bed. PLEASE. It’s now 10pm and you are all still awake and I am getting all eye-twitchy. I love you but it’s time for sleeping now, little ones. And a week after the time change, nothing has changed and I end up doing the Samuel L. Jackson version of “Go the F*ck to Sleep” and my kids are scarred for life.

    When the towels acquire the funk smell, add a cup of vinegar when you run the washer again and it gets rid of the funk (and your towels will not smell like vinegar either). Love this post! Funny and true!

    I keep the funk in the towels at bay by always adding vinegar (1/2 to 1 cup) in the rinse cycle. It’s easy to do automatically if you have a fabric softener dispenser in your washing machine. And what is with all the funky smells coming out now?!?! My goal for the day is to track down the mysterious poop smell that is somewhere between my bathroom and the stairwell….
