Ugh. Spring.

I had hoped to have some interesting project to post by now but... I don't. I have been too grumpy to want to do anything. Why? It's spring.

I get grumpy when spring rolls around. I do not like spring. An unpopular opinion, I know. But I am always sorry to see winter go.

In winter, I don't have to face the overwhelming issue of all the landscaping that I can neither do myself nor find someone to do for me. In winter, I don't have to worry about weeds growing in the driveway cracks or grass in the backyard growing taller than my dog. In winter, there are no mosquitoes, there are no silverfish, there are no wasps... in fact, there is not an insect in sight. In winter, the high school marching band isn't practicing outside at 8:00 a.m. on Saturdays. In winter, my neighbor's dog is not outside barking all day. In winter, my car doesn't turn into an oven after five minutes in a parking lot. In winter, the Sun isn't inflicting its migraine-inducing glare on me for 14 hours a day. In winter, I can wear long sleeves and tights and boots.

I like winter, when it's dark and cold (or snowy glowy and cold) and things are dead. :P
