TSS: Fall is here and I am not excited
Posted by Caitie F on September 26, 2010
Today there are so many posts with proclamations of “Fall is here!” with lots of excitement. I don’t understand that excitement at all. I am not happy with the transition from summer to fall for many reasons.
1. My allergies kick in again. I am allergic to trees, both when they are growing, and when the leaves are falling. Especially when the leaves are falling. While a good pile of leaves looks like a lot of fun to jump in, I would have issues breathing for a week as a result.
2. I get my asthma cough. When it gets colder, I suddenly can’t breath. I used my rescue inhaler six times last week. I have had to use it once when I wasn’t exercising before in my entire life. I am heading to the doctor tomorrow to find out if there is something I can take because this cough sucks and breathing has been difficult.
3. It is that horrible season when I have nothing I can wear. I have a ton of summer clothes – T-Shirts and polo shirts, skirts and dresses. I have tons of winter clothes - corduroy pants, vests, and big comfy sweaters. But fall? I have some 3/4 length shirts but not much else. And then you get the days when you need to dress for both!
4. Summer is over. I love summer and everything that goes with it – swimming outside in the chlorine, heading to the beach, reading a book in the sun, the fairs and festivals and everything else! Fall is the beginning of all of my favorite things ending.
I do love taking drives and looking at the pretty leaves, but that doesn’t make up for all of the things I dislike!
Are you like me? Or do you love fall? Let me know and try to convince me of why I should in the comments!
