I just can’t wait until summer is officially over. Labor Day is fast approaching, whether you realize it or not. No more all-day sunshine, no more sweating all day long: I hate all of it. I hate summer so much that by the time it’s August, I realize that the torture is almost over, and Halloween is just around the corner. I can’t wait for all the sweaters, and cold nights, and cold mornings, and hot coffee not making me sweat anymore. I don’t like having free time if all I do is sweat.
I don’t like wearing so many tank tops, and besides, I don’t have enough pairs of shorts for this type of weather, either. I need more skirts and shorts, but if I just had enough money, that might do the trick. I could go to the beach whenever I wanted, and pay for my own air conditioning. I would get driven everywhere, and not worry about walking, or standing around for half the day.
I can’t wait for pumpkin spice everything. I want it all. I especially want to try the pumpkin spice coffee creamers. I have been doing a lot of writing, and looking for past stories in my files. I found them, and I saved them. It is time to reap what I have sown. I have been working hard all year long. It’s time for me to watch my success multiply.
True friends will always help you. Thankfully, I have a few of my own that always extend their helping hand. They feel compassion for me, and always lend me their ear. I can talk to my friends about anything, and I appreciate that more than they know. They are the kind of friends that you can hang out with, watch a movie, and share funny observations. Whoever was not a good friend to you will fall to the sidelines as the fall approaches. It’s just the way things turn out sometimes.
When I was a kid, my favorite thing about Halloween was running around at night. I loved the smell of the candy wrappers. I loved the fact that no one knew who I was with a mask on. I loved trick or treating with my cousins. They lived in a nice, safe neighborhood with generous people. I would look forward to it every year. I loved the fact that I had a better option than my classmates. I lived in a bad neighborhood, where no one opened their doors, or the candy you got was very little. Either way, it was no fun for us kids.
I’m sure I will get invited to plenty of housewarming parties this weekend. I can’t wait to wear all my new winter sweaters, This fall, I heard, that it will be the year of the ugly Halloween sweaters. So, if you loved wearing ugly Christmas sweaters, you will love this September even more, I hope. I can’t wait to see which ones are scary, cute, and just freaky!! If there are any Garbage Pail Kids sweaters, I will grab those first.
I can’t wait until there is less sun, and no bugs. No more flies, mosquitoes, and no more ants!! I don’t want anymore looking for shade every chance I get, and looking for a/c where ever I go. I hate that. I feel like I am traveling from one desert to another.
