Typical Oklahoma weather. We get so sick of winter...idiots like me are excited about warmer weather. But come on! We went from 40's & 50's to 80's. So much for Spring. I love the trees and flowers and everything turning green, but the allergy season has also exploded. They are saying that our region is expected to have a bad allergy year. DUH.
I haven't worn my contacts in two weeks. Not a problem but I still have gunk I'm fishing out of my eyes constantly and going through tissues like crazy. At least my oldest hasn't had a major asthma attack yet. That's usually our first Spring indicator.
But beyond all the griping, I LOVE Spring! The kiddos can play outside more. I really enjoy sitting outside in the evenings and grilling while watching kids and dogs play. I'm planning to go this weekend and pick up early flowers to plant out in front. I love driving up and seeing my blooming, colorful flower beds. I can deal with allergies because I love the smell of fresh cut grass. I love coming in after working outside and taking a shower, laying around on couch with windows open and an evening breeze drifting lazily through the blinds.
Shoot...who am I kidding. That'll last about a month and I'll be ready for tornado season to go away and bring Fall.
