"200"



I just noticed this will be post #200 here. Nothing special, other than a nice, round number...

April has been a slow blogging month if you haven't noticed. Lately, it seems like crazy things happen most often in April. From the OKC bombing to Columbine to Virginia Tech to a hundred other smaller events. I wonder if it's cabin fever? We've all had a long winter, some have had a long school year, and everyone is ready for summer. It makes people go mad. I'm not intending to make light of any of these situations - just making an observation about how so many of these types of events seem to be clustered in April.

So, take a deep breath and don't do anything crazy. May will be here in a week.

Uhhhh... Brenda, I have heard the story of your wedding and honeymoon. I don't know if I would put it in the good category or not.

I'm always crazy. I don't think April has anything to do with it. :)

Though, I will admit this month has been particularly difficult for me as well. I have had loads of blogging material though. :)

Did anyone notice that the title, "200", kind of looks like the word "Zoo"?

Brenda said...

Peter....maybe I should just celebrate the fact that I'm still married after all that disaster!

April is so strange, in fact, that some are proposing we change spring break from March to April. They propose that it would be a way to help get through this time and possibly cut down on all the copy-cat craziness that surrounds these school tragedies.

Congrats on your 200th post, but really "Zoo" is a very accurate description for this time of year!

Brenda, I agree, April does have some good things too! My birthday for one!

Ohhhhh, I read your blog just in the nic of time! I was about to do something crazy and go out and wash Jason Thornton's car!

Whew! So glad you brought me to my senses. Hurry up May!
