Spring on the Resentment

Last night, on a whim, I rearranged our entire bedroom. 

Now when I say “I,” I definitely mean that I made my beau help me move all the heavy furniture around and changed my mind three times in the process. This is my version of spring cleaning, as I refuse to throw anything away. 

You see, spring is my most and least favorite time of year. It’s the ultimate love/hate relationship.  
I’ll elaborate.

Yesterday I got to work from the back patio of my office. The view looks something like this: 

I also enjoyed this view while sitting on a porch swing with a very padded butt cushion. While working, of course.

Spring 1 – Winter 0

My version of allergy season just means horribly itchy eyes. Cue no eye makeup and hitting the pharmacy for a lethal combo of daytime Zyrtec D and nightime Benedryl. Thank goodness my fakie Firmoo glasses* (I don’t need glasses. They’re an accessory and I’m obsessed) make all this less obvious.

But to say that Benedryl makes me loopy would be a gross understatement. 

Last Friday I forgot that, had a glass of wine, and proceeded to giggle a lot and tell Naveed a few stories from college that I’m sure glad he didn’t find out about until two years in to our relationship. Oops.

Spring 1 – Winter 1 – Nadine 0

Morning walks with Archie now look a lot more like this:                                         and a lot less like this:

While I’ll miss my sweet matching sweatsuit, I will no longer be mistaken for the neighborhood hobo or a time traveler from the 80s.

Spring 2 – Winter 1 

It’s sandal season again, meaning my shoe options literally quadruple. 

Spring 3 – Winter 1

Another round of graduates emerge from the college landscape, ready to be smacked in the face by reality. And then I realize, that moment for me was now 3 years ago. 

And then I feel old. This feels like yesterday. Yesterday, I tell ya.

Spring 3 – Winter 2

And the worst part about spring? The part that makes me dread it, wish it would never come again, and beg for just a few more weeks of winter? 

Season Finales. 

The beginning of June always results in some serious withdrawal. I can’t give up New Girl (Nick and Jess!), The Mindy Project, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family for the summer. I just can’t. 

Spring 3 – Winter 100

Waaaa. Let me just go cry and be thankful I never delete anything from my DVR. Reruns. Reruns will carry me through.

What shows will you be missing? Do you harbor secret spring resentment?

Today it’s my pleasure to profess my undying love for introduce you to Meighan from Heavens to Meighan

She’s more than some blogger who I want you to go visit (but I do, go visit). She’s my soul sister. 

You see, Meighan and I both clearly lack coordination, as she evidenced here and I did here. She uses the word nonsense often, ads many a GIF to her posts, and was the first and only blogger to ask for my phone number so we could take our shenanigans offline. Yuup, I love her.

And the best part? Meighan is hosting a new link up on May 22nd called That One Time…

I’m excited to share a ridiculously ridiculous story with you. See you there? In the meantime, tweet at Meighan and give her a sneak peek of the story you will be sharing (#thatonetime) or visit her blog!
