I LOVE SUMMER, I don't want it to end.
I KNOW it's hot. I KNOW I have hot flashes on top of that. I KNOW our frickin' central air-conditioning broke this year (it was hell) & we made "do" with a window air-conditioner in our upstairs bedroom. (Worked fine, & boy did we save on the electric bill!) I KNOW the mosquitos could give us west nile virus or worse... geeze I could go on & on...
I KNOW the changing of the leaves are spectacular & the most gorgeous time of the year, esp in the Poconos. I KNOW the crispness in the air is so fresh & revitalizing. I KNOW the flights get back to 'normal' with all the rugrats back in school, vacations over & just regular business passengers that are 'aware' of the fucked up changes in flying & are already 'over' it, thus easier trips.
But I LOVE SUMMER. I love the smell of sunshine, fresh cut lawns, flowers, the ocean waves crashing on the shore, chirping birds & even crickets & croaking frogs! Summer is so short here in the East. I should SO live in LA. But Doris won't go. sigh.
Yeah, yeah yeah - Fall is the greatest time of the year, BUT it too only last a short minute. Like summer, the bliss is SO quick. Then here comes the weather, rainstorms, sleet & snow, & there goes the sun & light. Here comes my depression from light deprivation, there goes the lazy hazy days outside, here comes the prison of staying indoors from the frickin' 'elements.'
Waaaaa waaaaa waaaa, oh let me just shut the F up right now. It is what it is, this is where I live with my frickin' beloved...
I'm lucky I'll have trips to Lax to get to the sunny skies, green grass & palm trees in the winter time. Hopefully. The way things are going our airline may take that away from us too, they've already CANCELLED all but ONE Los Angelos trip into & out of Newark Airport. Driving to JFK is out of the question, esp in bad weather. So I pray to maintain "status quo."
Okay, I'll stop bitching now. (For the moment!)
Let me get outside & enjoy the sunny warmth while I still can. oye.
