Go home Mother Nature, you are drunk

We have been having some beautiful weather lately and it is pissing me off.

Let me ‘splain. No, there is too much, let me sum up:

On Saturday I dragged my kids to the park so they could play while I banged out 2 miles on the walking trail (the trail surrounds the park, so I can see my kids the whole time. I may not be a great mom, but I’m not a stupid mom either.) It was 75 degrees and sunny. I wore a tshirt and thin workout pants while my kids wore shorts and flip flops. Everyone and their dog was out there just enjoying the beautiful day –  playing, throwing Frisbees,  picnicking, all those things one does on a lovely summer day.

Um, hello?! It’s December, not June!! I even saw the cutest baby ducks as I walked around the duck pond.



What is wrong with you, Mother Nature? Don’t you realize it’s supposed to be snowy and cold, not warm and gorgeous? Do you know how hard it is to get in the Christmas spirit and get my shopping done when you insist on giving us beautiful days? DO YOU? Cold and snowy  = inside = shopping malls. Warm and gorgeous = outside = BABY FREAKING DUCKS. Seriously Mama Nat, you need to lay off the nectar and get your head on straight. Do you and Jack Frost have a little thing going on the side? Is he so happy that he can’t be bothered to blow a little cold air our way?

We had a cold front move in last night. Guess what today’s high temperature is for today? Sixty-five degrees. Whoa, get out your light jackets!! That’s not a cold front, that’s just a waste of my time.

I’ve got shopping to do!! I’ve got a boatload of gifts to buy and I cannot possibly do that when I am compelled to sit on my porch and soak up the sun! I’m thinking of staging an intervention for Mother Nature because clearly, she is snorting some trippy drugs.

As if I’m not crazy enough these days, I have to put up with unbelievably nice weather too? Life’s so unfair.

  1. ROFLOL – you are too funny!!! I’m all for mild winters, but this has been ridiculous so far. Heat wave in December??? Mother Nature MUST be on the sauce!

  2. Haha, I don’t know where you live, but over here it’s raining, snowing and storming. It’s lovely. I’d happily move to wherever you live after reading this!
    Love, Anne

  3. Too funny! It’s very mild here in Utah, too. We’re supposed to have “the greatest snow on earth” — it says so on the license plates.

    I grew up in Phoenix. I’m kinda used to not having a white Christmas. We sure belted out the lyrics to Elvis’ “White Christmas” when it played, though. 🙂 Maybe if we all sang the song at the same time and did some sort of “snow” dance, Jack Frost will sweep Mother Nature off her feet.

  4. Here in Australia, I am forced to do my Christmas shopping because it is too hot to be outside. Except for today, when it is suddenly freezing and I have long sleeves on and probably could do with a jumper. In December. In Australia. Mother Nature, wtf are you doing?

  5. Oh wow, it`s summer at your place, I guess it`s not like that usually? I see beautiful snow outside and sun shining, it`s so llike December should be. I just hope Christmas will be like that as well, I don`t want to see rain like last year:-) have a great-before-Christmas-time

  6. I grew up in Colorado. People go to the beach here on Christmas Day. It’s wrong. It’s been almost 25 years now, and I’m not going to adjust.
