Man I hate winter. The cold, the snow, the slippery roads, taking an extra thirty minutes to get out the door because of all the layers, not being able to open my windows or dry my sheets outside without losing an eye on their frozen corners. Ugh.
T and I were looking at some pictures on my phone the other day and I realized that, the day we hauled the wagon full of stuff down to the Toys for Tots donation spot (in December!) we were wearing sweatshirts. And shortly after that, the deep freeze set in. Ugh again.
But today…Today was glorious. Foggy at first, then sunny warmth that invited a long walk with the dogs and many trips down the slide. T got a bike for Christmas and, except for the day he decided to ride it down the stairs, it has mostly collected dust over the past few months, waiting for just the right moment for him to make it FLY.
So I take this day, the first of Spring, to declare the end of my annual hibernation. Sure, the next few weeks could bring more snow and sleet. But I’ve had just enough sweet air to get me over the hump and my loving husband just brought me a Bud Lite Lime Mango-Rita (seriously – it’s a thing!). So suck it, winter – there’s a new season in town.
