Say It Ain't So...

The cold reality of it being a mere 6 months until Christmas has slapped me silly this morning. With Summer just officially arriving on Sunday, this news is a bitter pill to swallow. What have I done to deserve this?



It’s not that I have anything against Christmas, it’s just that I have a bone or two to pick with the nasty, uninvited cold weather that hitches a ride with it. Anyone that lives in a warmer climate cannot possibly relate to this feeling of desperation. The saddest part of this revelation being – cold weather actually arrives at least two months prior to Christmas (aka 4 months from now). Gahhh!


What does that mean you ask? It means I have a lot of warmth and sunshine to absorb and pack into these remaining 4 months. Using my vacation days are not a feasible option, as these must be reserved for my winter escapes to warmer climates. Hmmm...perhaps a few more sick days are in order. I hear the West Nile virus might be going around. *cough, cough*

and here I was thinking "yay! only 6 months until Christmas!" ;o)
Cris - I love Christmas, just not winter here in Canada. Actually I might like winter a little, but only until January 2nd and then it can leave me alone.

As a self proclaimed ultimate optimist I take the 'silver lining' view of most things. Cold climate being one of them. I accept the pain of winter because I look better in cozy sweaters than string bikini's.

It's all in the viewpoint, all in the view....

Thanks for the chuckle!
