Winter, We are done.
Yes, the kids enjoy playing outside in the snow making snowmen and snow angels but I don’t and I’m pretty sure most of you reading this feel the same way.
I could sit here listing probably hundreds of reasons why I’m not a big winter fan. Aside from it being COLD, I don’t partake in most winter activities and not entirely by choice but because of serious hip problems I have. Year after year of being a by-stander makes me a little bitter too.
The salt stains, the wet cold socks and mitts, the slipping and the falling. Not quite enjoyable for a person like me.
Winter feels like it’s lasting so much longer this year than others. Maybe it’s those dreaded winter blues I get every year kicking in. Maybe it’s the fact it’s so damn miserable outside we are all cooped up inside stuck in eachothers hair most days. Having little to no sunshine makes everyone dull and cranky.
We had that one freakishly beautiful day last Friday and then *poof* unwelcome back Canadian winter. It’s actually snowing right now. The sky is grey and my mood is as dull as the weather.
I miss taking walks without having to wear unflattering layers. I miss not having to take 20 minutes or more per child to dress them only to have them whine to come back in within 10 minutes because it’s too cold/wet/whatever. We dont even go for our family walks. Not much fun trying to walk dressed like the pilsbury dough boy. I miss the sunshine and the dry sidewalks. I miss nice weather, I’d even take a rainy spring day over winter. I want Spring to make her appearance. I’m done with this season.
I’m not the only one either. Today on twitter I went on a rage about how I’m done with winter and tweeted “Everyone who’s done with winter raise your hands!” – many responses on that. @DisneyTRAVELmum let us know there are still 25 days left, well she said “only” but I say still. Never know what mother nature will throw our way.
It’s the people against winter. We win, now please go.
