To All You Diamonds Out There...

I love April. It's a great month. I have always looked forward to April because that meant, the snow would melt after a harsh winter, spring break vacation, new fun clothes, driving with the windows down and the music up... you know what I mean.

Now that I live in Florida, I don't have to worry about the snow and all the months run together and I never really know what time of year it is, just the day of the week.

The thing I love most about April... The birthdays. Yes, the birthdays. It starts on the 2nd and doesn't stop. And I am not saying, "Boo hoo, I have so many birthdays to remember this month." I remember all of them. Every year, at the end of March, I set out on a big shopping trip. New Mr. Tia laughs because it's like Christmas for us again. We have 10. That's right, ten birthdays to remember in April. And only 2 of those ten are close friends. The rest of those birthdays are family.

This, my friends, is the price I pay for having my birthday the same week as Christmas. That has always been my reasoning. That, and if you're into astrology, Aries and Capricorns are very compatible. All but one of my important birthdays to remember are Aries. (Sorry, Tito)

What month do you love?

I love any month where the snow melts. I don't know what month that is anymore.

I do have to say March and April and September and October and November, and even Awwwwwgust.

I'm a big fan of May. It finally starts to get nice and school lets out of the summer.

Oh and I'm sorry to hear about your itchy hands. And I hope for you and Mr. Tia that you aren't experiencing 'roid rage.

Oh, and you may want to check out - i got a sweet pseudo-insurance discount plan from there last year and saved a bunch of money.
