Shit. It's raining
I hate the rain. It's not a love/hate relationship. Just hate. Fall arrived on Friday and I hate the Fall as well.
I have nice Fall/Winter clothes. I love Christmas. I have travel galore booked to cover the time until Summer returns to me. I live in California. How bad could it be?
But the days get shorter and shorter. The temperature requires I wear actual pants and (oh horror) socks.
Last night as the heavens opened and the rain beat the crap out of the house I tried not to cry myself to sleep. It feels as if my best friend just took a job far, far away. I won't get to see him/her for at least 6 months. Oh sure, we'll e-mail, we'll talk on the phone. We may even get to see each other however briefly in the meantime. But he/she won't be here with me day to day making me smile and giving me all that warmth I need so badly.
So, I've hauled out the boots, switched the sweaters lower and the T-shirts higher and moved the rain proof outerwear to the front of the hall closet.
Goodbye Summer. Don't forget to write!
