It feels like everywhere I look, everyone I talk to is going through the same soggy crap right now.
Tons of Facebook statuses like, “My kids are driving me nuts!” and “I can’t take all the whining.”
So many tweets about babies that aren’t themselves, and wishing things would get back to normal. Complaints of kids that gripe and annoying spouses.
Blogs about how everything feels off, and down, and in a rut.
Is there something in the air? Is it the pollen driving us all insane? The gradual change from indoor life to outdoor? Are we upsetting our miserable routines?
I mean, It’s SPRING time! It’s supposed to be brightness, and sunshine, and everything new again. It’s supposed to be wonderous and light.
So far, it’s been pretty crummy.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m ready for things to level out again. Let’s get rid of colds, and spend more time outside. Let’s have play dates. Let’s do summer baking, and try new recipes. Let’s play games we forgot we played as kids. Let’s teach our babies how to enjoy running, and swimming and playing. Let’s share ideas of things to do. Let’s take LOTS of pictures, because there’s never too many.
Let’s enjoy the spring, because it turns into summer, and then fall, and winter. Then, before you know it, another year is gone, and you wonder what you did. Let’s make memories that are worth keeping.
