Mid-March! How's It Hangin?

Mid-March!  How did that happen?  Let's see.  January, was okay, yes?  No, January was better than okay. Right?  Hmmm, I should go back and read blog post from back then.  Now, February, that was a different story altogether, wasn't it?  Actually, I don't remember anything about February.  So, yeah.
Hey, but March... we've made it!  Ha, I don't know what I mean by that.  How's this month going for you?  Good, I hope.

What's that saying?  March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Who even said that for the first time ever?  Why would the saying have been repeated, then used and spread out from wherever it originated.  How much did those sharing the expression actually know about lions and lambs?  Not much, I bet.  Also, where exactly did they live? Coastal, mountain, desert, plains, jungle, savannah, or frozen tundra region? Which continent? Northern, or Southern hemisphere? Where, where, where?

According to Wikipedia, this saying is considered weather lore, or more aptly, false lore.  March can pretty much come in like a lamb and leave like a lion. So it's an either or sort of thing.

First week of March in the Southern California desert this year was absolutely gorgeous, see...

From my perspective, back end of March 2015 will be stressful.  First of all, there's a move last week of the month.  We still haven't found a rental to move in to yet.  We have no idea how we'll be able to afford move in costs when and if we find a rental, nor how we'll be able to manage high rents financially. There's a ton of uncertainly and tensions are already high at The Place.  But we're all adults here, so I guess that means... uh, I have no idea what that means.
