We have had a horrible, awful spring (if you can even call it that) this year. 
The average temp in April is in the 60's...this year, I doubt the average has even been 45. 
What the Heck?!?!?!?!?!?!?  Why did we leave the warmth of Vegas? 
I've asked myself that many, many, many times this past month!

The only good thing about not seeing the sun for nearly an entire month is that it gave me the opportunity to teach my kids a fond song from my youth:
Oh Mister Sun, Sun.
Mister Golden Sun.
Please shine down on me?

Oh Mister Sun, Sun.
Mister Golden Sun.
Hiding behind the tree.

These little children
are asking you.
To please come out
so we can play with you.

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun.
Please shine down on me?

Then this past weekend happened.

I did everything in my power (including saying no to laundry) to be outside and soak up the sunshine.
Saturday we had swimming and soccer.  Went for three walks throughout the day. Had picnic for lunch. Mowed and trimmed the lawn. Opened the windows. Spent some much needed time with our neighbors on the patio.  Oh, it felt so good.

Sunday we did spring cleaning at my parents lake.  We spent basically all day (9am-8pm) outside! Yay!!  Ed even came home with a sunburn.

John Denver was right.....Sunshine on my shoulders DOES make me happy!
Monday and today are gorgeous too!!  It was 70 degrees at 5am this morning during my walk!  Hallelujah!
And I got to eat lunch OUTSIDE in the SUN with two dear friends.

Now. check out the forecast for the rest of the week:

Please kill me now.
I have a SEVERE case of Seasonal affective disorder......also called SAD.......because it makes people (myself included) SAD and CRAZY and CRANKY.

Go away cold weather.
Go far far away.

Late start in May for snow is over-rated don't you think?
