I know, most people think I am crazy.
I have never liked hot weather. I would rather it be 20 degrees than 90.
The only thing I like about summer is swimming. I love water. We don't have a pool though. Or live by an ocean. Once or twice in the summer we spend the money to go to a water park for the day. We mostly spend time in the wave pool and the lazy river. I love them both.
Other than that, I really hate summertime.
My work schedule stinks. I work 11-12 hours a day for less money than I make during the school-year.
My allergies are bad.
I'm always hot. (I am assuming this will only be made worse by hot flashes this year?)
My parents are going away for two weeks. We have to take care of their cats, get their mail, water all their plants, mow their lawn, etc, etc. Plus, I am completely anxiety ridden when they travel. I don't know why. It's always been like that for me. Even growing up I had bad anxiety when my mom would go somewhere that I knew I wouldn't be able to reach her if I needed her.
We have a family reunion July 17th that I am already dreading.
And the biggest reason summer sucks.....
It is homestudy renewal time. AGAIN.
(We still haven't sent the check in to start the renewal process. Probably because we have no idea where the money will come from.)
So, really, I would like to just go to sleep and someone can wake me up when this summer of hell is over with.
For now I am going to daydream of the Fall.
Adam and I LOVE the Fall.
Here are some pictures that make me very happy:
Oooo....the scary pumpkin room....eeek
The apple mill we go to every weekend in the Fall.
Just a part of our Halloween village
We have a Fall party every year and I made these gravestone cupcakes for each guest one year.
