Leap Year

Every four years we get bothered with an extra day in February.  As a rule, I hate February.  It's cold, it's dreary, and between seeing that rodent check out his shadow and having to give up something for lent for some of you, it's just not a fun month.  Oh yeah, there's Valentine's Day, but some people get so upset about not having someone to spend it with (our kids) or expecting us to buy things for V-Day (our kids) that it ruins it for everyone else.  And don't even get me started on the jacked up prices on flowers and chocolate on the days before V-Day.

So what do the wise calendar people do?  They decide to make our lives worse by adding that extra day on in FEBRUARY, the worst month to do this.  I think it has to do with February being the shortest month, but did they ever think of the reason for it being short?  People HATE February (at least I do).

I think leap year's day should be in June or something, so we can enjoy the warmth for one extra day, even if it is just a mental thing.

What do you think?

Have a great week!
