A Look Ahead: One year on job for Pope Francis

We know how you feel about Monday morning -- not the greatest day, right? You fumble for the coffee, stare bleary-eyed at your overstuffed inbox and wonder why you aren't still wrapped in a blanket cocoon on the sofa watching reruns. We'll ease your pain and let you in on some of what this week has to offer.

MONDAY, MARCH 10 - Sochi is back in the spotlight this week, hosting the Paralympics Winter Games through March 16. Alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, ice sledge hockey, and wheelchair curling are among the competitions on the schedule.

TUESDAY, MARCH 11 - Musician Bobby McFerrin turns 64 today, so you may as well celebrate his most-beloved song by taking a moment to let your cares wash away. Good advice, Bobby!

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12 - The Girl Scouts were founded by Juliette Gordon Low today in 1912! If you still have any cookies left, now is the time to be thankful for them (By eating them all). 

THURSDAY, MARCH 13 - Pope Francis celebrates one year since he was elected today, and he continues to say and do things that are making waves in the Catholic Church. 

FRIDAY, MARCH 14 - Famous funnyman Billy Crystal turns 66 today. To celebrate, we look back at some of his classic standup routine from way back when. Best of all, he's still got it.
