So yesterday was absolutely gorgeous outside. I was totally loving being outside. I was enjoying the sunshine, the flowers, the tress, the breeze, the happy music on the radio, and I was even having fun with my GPSing. I was enjoying it until 3:00. Then, it started to get a little hot and I was reminded of what's lurking just around the corner that threatens to make me a miserable girl over the next few months: Summer.
-Summer comes creeping out at you right around May.
-Summer catches you between your car and your front door (even though it's only 20 feet) and makes you start your day with a bucket of sweat.
-Summer catches you doing your Tuesday job (which requires you to be outside all day) and then gives you the worst skin-peeling sunburn.
-Summer hinders any and all road trips because you know you're going to want to run your air conditioner but you also know gas costs at least $2.50 a gallon.
-Summer makes your electric bill go up.
-Summer beckons you to get in or near a pool or ocean, which means some unlucky sap is going to have to see you in your swimming suit.
-Summer causes you to spend more time wearing shorts. And if you're like me, you just can't find a flattering pair of shorts no matter the cut, the length, or the style.
Have you figured out yet that I'm not excited about summer? Thankfully I awoke this morning to find it back to good old 50 degrees. Yummy.
Jared and I went to Boone last night in hopes of escaping the most awful time of the year. It was so nice. Two beers a piece and some warm, yummy, Mellow pizza, and we were feeling just right. Balanced.
