30 Days Has September
March 3, 2015
I found out the hard way that February is a short month. I was trying to reset the start and stop dates for an online payment, and the system would not let me pay a fee scheduled for February 30. After sending a note to customer service, I finally realized I had forgotten there are only 28 days in February. And, I knew this going into the month!

It really seems like yesterday that women were venting about the return of summer, and bathing suit season.

We can carry many topics from month to month, season to season and, if anything, this reminds us that 2015 is flying by.
"Little darling it's been a long, cold and lonely winter," is the tune for lots of women. My girlfriend Robin has a cruise planned for next month.

She's got something to look forward to and prepare for, regardless of what happens with the weather or work.
Tanning salons and gyms are running specials, hoping to attract others who are ready to segue into another phase of this year. What special are you running, and are you running with her? It doesn't matter if you're running in front or behind, because she's looking after a toddler learning how to walk, or she's chasing down a teenager who needs to be accountable, or a boss who must give her specifics so she can get a job done, or conversing about the color of a dress on the internet. The way you run with her is critical to whether or not she strides- I mean listens- to you.
