Thursday 13

I am trying a little reverse psychology here. Maybe, if spring thinks we DONT want it, it will show up, and stay....

13 things I don't like about Spring
1. My allergies
2. Pollen all over my car
3. The rash of crazy things people do that land them in the ED, and some? into my ICU
4. The beginning of the annual shedding of my cats. One of them in particular. (Angus)
5. mm, this is harder than I thought. Did I mention allergies?
6. All the foolish people who think spring is summer and start walking around in hawaiian shirts, shorts, and flip flops. In 50 degree weather.
7. The worms all over the ground in some places.
8. The price of gas going on the rise again, because it always does
9. Stupid people who buy their children bunnies or chicks for Easter, because they are "cute" then don't know how to care for them.
10. Watery eyes in the morning with at least a ten revolution sneeze-ing fit (did I mention allergies?)
11. Spring break is just a summer time tease for the kids, and makes them antsy
12. did I already mention cat fur?
13 and worms? I got nuthin'

For more Thursday 13 fun, go here

I can totally relate to the worm thing. I HATE worms. And pollen. And cat fur. And Hawaiian shirts (even in August)...Happy TT!

I could do without all the wind. I HATE wind. It gives me headaches and tangles. I do like to fly kites, though.

AND ... once you can open the windows in addition to 'fresh' air you get NOISE and dust and did I mention noise?

We live on the ground floor on a street that leads to the park and every child who is cranky throws a fit in front of my windows .. people stop and spend minutes chatting on phones and/or with others in front of my windows .. did I mention dust?

Across from the park is a highway ...

My least favorite thing about spring is the necessity of buying (which means trying on) a new swim suit. It's enough to almost make me wish for more snow ... almost.

I hate the thought of going out on the Harely, nothing worse than a loud abnoxious motorcycle...xoxoxo

But how do you REALLY feel about your allergies? I wasn't sure from this post.

It's nice you couldn't come up with a (full) list of 13.. that means Spring must certainly be around the corner. I hope. For my sanity.

I'm very excited for your Terrible Two party coming up!

How about the annual sunburn when I forgot to put on sun screen because I don't think I need it yet. For some reason I do it every single darn year- I should know better.

Yeah, the worms are ugly.

Hey, very unique. I've read blogs about what people like about Spring, but not what they don't. Happy TT!

I was really stuck for something to Thirteen did fine. Sorry about the allergies, they can almost ruin spring. But I hope you really get to enjoy it when it arrives. :)
