IMG_3953“Tra la! It’s May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev’ryone goes
Blissfully astray.
Tra la! It’s here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear!”

Yeah right.

May is a funny month. It is mostly something to get through. As soon as the calendar page turns over from April my eyes go immediately to when is Memorial day weekend, when summer begins in the eyes of most Yanks. Until then it is merely counting the days. May weather doesn’t help. In theory we have a month of spring. This seldom happens. Both in the Midwest and in the Southwest there is a sense of going from inclement weather right into the ardent temperatures of summer. May feels simultaneously slow and quick. The days drag yet the month whizzes by.

Indeed there is nothing on the Spo-calendar in the merry month of May. On the positive this means I may get back to more regular gym appointments.  I can do projects at home as well.  I lead a dull life, and there is no month like May to be so.  Good Mr. Mahoney (the investment man at ML) advises us to set up a budget in order to have a regular monthly amount come his way. He also got us to sign up for some sort of fabulous new ML credit card that accumulates points towards fabulous prizes or something. There seems to be a mixed message here to both save and spend money.  I would love to get Someone to sit down with me and make us  a budget. As for spending money to rack up points, well there is no lack of things to buy.

If May is to be a quiet month then the Archetype Women’s Union should have many opportunities to deliver onto me erudite and/or comical blog entries.  Blue Apron regularly sends me three meal kits every Thursday; the AWU can do like-wise.  I should also be better at reading blogs, which I haven’t done in a while (Oh the embarrassment).

That’s all for now. It’s Tuesday morning prior to work. I see over 30 patients today in ‘med checks’. Most of them are well over four feet and up to no good that’s certain.
