Okay, normally I LOVE September. It’s my favourite month of the year. And yet, this September is almost over, and it has been a big old bag of suck.
It’s the weather. It has been raining for what seems like weeks. I know it hasn’t actually BEEN weeks, but it feels like it. I would bet, though, that it has rained most days so far this month. I am used to warm, sunny Septembers. Time to go for walks, and get the garden put away, and finish up any yardwork and outside stuff that has to be done. We usually don’t get this much rain until November. And it hasn’t been hard rain and thunderstorms either. Oh no. Just the incessant drizzle, like we’ve all suddenly been magically transported to Vancouver.
For the record, I hate Vancouver.
So I am sitting indoors, day after day, with a slate of things I wanted to do outside that are not getting done. And it is making me peevish. Also, it has totally screwed up my walking routine. I don’t mind walking in the rain, but BDH is not a fan, so rainy days we don’t walk in the mornings. So we haven’t walked much this month either. The dreariness also makes one very tired and lethargic. I sit on my arse in front of the computer way too much now. I am just not motivated. I am one of those people who gets SAD (seasonal affective disorder) symptoms when the seasons turn, so it is bumming me out. I also hate winter with the heat of a thousand burning nuns. At least in winter, there are some bright sunny days, and there’s something magical about a calm, windless winter night while the snow falls. But autumn is my favourite season!
This totally sucks. I hope October is better.
