I hate Summer.
Why? Let me count the ways:
1.) Sunburns- My background is Irish. To say I’m pale is an understatement. Sitting outside for 20 minutes without sunscreen will gain me a respectable sunburn. The sun= IT BURNS.
2.) Humidity- I grew up in Kentucky, in the Ohio River Valley. My hair is thick, coarse, and wavy. It can also detect humidity from 100 miles away. It grows into a magnificent fluff ball in the summer. It’s hot. And don’t get me started on what the humidity does to my already oil complection.
3.) Sweat- Do we really have to say anything else on the subject?
4.) Summer Attire- Yeah, my legs are not made for short shorts, or any shorts really (and they REFUSE to tan). If it could be fall when I could rock some tights, that would be great.
5.) Shaving- Again, do we really need to say anything else?
6.) Mosquitoes- They love me. I hate them.
7.) Allergies- If it grows, it makes me miserable. And while I love the smell of freshly cut grass, my allergies hate it.
8.) Hot Cars- Nothing like hopping into a black car with tinted windows (I didn’t think of these problems until after I bought the car) that has had the windows up all day because it was looked like rain. Speaking of rain….
9.) Impromptu Summer Storms– I only hate these because storms FREAK OUT The Tiny Human. Especially if they come in the middle of the night.
10.) Summer Reading– This is a love-hate relationship. I love seeing all of the kids. I love the programs. I HATE planning it and I HATE the hateful people who have to complain about EVERYTHING we’re doing during the summer.
I can’t be the only one who hates summer. Who else is with me?!
