I have decided that I have a love/hate relationship with Spring.
I LOVE that the weather is getting warmer. I love that I don't have to bundle my kids up just to go to school. I love that it stays lighter later. I love that I wake up to sunlight instead of gray skies. I love that the green is coming back to my grass and my trees, and the trees in front of the kids school are full of the beautiful white/pink blossoms that I look forward to every year. I love the small specks of color with each flower I see brightening our world.
I HATE that my eyes won't stop itching, my nose won't stop running and everyone that sees me thinks I am tired, sick or just got done crying. I hate that I sneeze a million times a day. I hate that my nose is raw from all the Kleenex. I hate that allergy medications knock me out so bad that I can't function. I hate that I feel too miserable to enjoy all the wonderful things that I love about Spring! Can I please go to bed and sleep until summer?! Achoooo!
