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.
