Fall's here and I can honestly say, I am bummed.
Don't get me wrong. I love the changing colors. I like the fact that the AC will finally be turned off. I am grateful that I can put away my gardening equipment. I am glad the pool will be closed and not maintained for at least 6 months.
But I sure would miss running outside to my lawn barefooted. I will miss wearing shorts and tank tops. I'll miss wearing flipflops everywhere and keep my natural brown colored skin.
In Fall's defense, it has to happen.
Fall has given us some good things, too. New clothes (although I dread shopping), new TV programs to squander endless hours that could've been used to do other things, football (yes, girls, it keeps men from asking us where we spent the afternoon) and eye candy (usually applicable to those that go to school or live near University districts).
Yes, fall has arrived. Now I can worry about flu shots and drivers who don't know what to do when rain falls or snow hits. I can start whining about wearing winter coats and getting cold. And if you're like me suffering from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), you need to hit the exercise room or start doping up. It's gonna be a long season.
To all my girls who are at certain cross-roads in their lives, cheer up. There's always someone rooting for your success. I am one of them.
To all those I have railorad and hurt: My bad. Sorry. I can be insensitive at times. (Cue the song "Why Can't We Be Friends" here.)
And for those wanting something to cheer them up, here's a little Gilmore Girl soul searching for you.
Again, roll with the punches, everyone. The season has just made its mark and winter will soon come a-knockin'.
PS. I'd like to give Lindsay a shout out for providing the GG goodies.
