At the risk of turning my blog into small talk, which happens to be the bane of my existence, I need to mention something. The weather. I haven't had much to say this week, but I had to pop in to mention that it has been above 40 degrees the past two days. AND IT HAS BEEN AMAZING.
I know that last month I wrote this high and mighty post about how winter is THE BEST EVER, and while I still feel that way, I started to fall into a weather-induced funk. I was cranky and grouchy and just didn't feel like myself, until lo and behold, the sun came out and the temperature rose. And God said it was good.
I left work early yesterday to go the dentist, which happens to be in my hometown an hour away, and I didn't even mind it. Because it was warm. AND SUNNY. And even though I tend to glare at direct sunlight, I didn't mind it. It warmed my frozen, frostbitten soul. I put on my sunglasses, cranked up some sweet jamz, and turned off the seat warmers. I HAVE BEEN HEALED.
I walked to the gym this morning and didn't even need to put my sweatpants over my running shorts. I left work during my lunch break today and didn't have to wear my winter coat. I TURNED ON THE AC IN MY CAR. I left my cozy scarf in the coat closet. I currently do not have to make a choice between fuzzy socks and frostbite. While getting ready this morning, I actually caught myself thinking that I should grab a book and lay out by the pool after work. That is how warm 45 degrees feels to me right now. And tomorrow? Tomorrow there will be THUNDERSTORMS HALLELUJAH.
I will ignore the fact that the temperatures are dropping again. Spring is like a bag of chips; once you get a taste, you just can't quit. Spring is officially coming, which means it's basically summer, and then it will be FALL.
IT IS ALL HAPPENING SO FAST.
