Everyday is the same battle, over and over and over again.
I wake up every morning and don’t even bother to think about what headed my way.
I already know how the entire day is going to pan out and exactly what to expect. I have no excitement left in my life and no motivation to keep going unless something major finally breaks. What I’m saying is, I’m ready for a change of season. Literally. It has been summer in my area for 8 months. I know that in other regions of the country Donna Summer is a short and sweet time of year. Everyone looks forward to a couple of weeks of sunshine and relaxation down by the pool with a cold drink in their hands. In the rest of the country, summer is a long, arduous, and miserable season. Where I live it starts in February and ends somewhere in October when the cool air finally starts flowing. For all the months in between, you can expect daily air temperatures in the mid-90s and choking humidity most days of the week. We rarely get rain or wind to help break the heat. We just have sunshine on sunshiny day. After a few months of it… You stop wanting to go outside anymore. I don’t want to leave the comfort and safety of my air conditioning system. All that I want is a nice, natural, flowing Breeze of cool air to come rolling through my windows. I don’t know how much longer I can continue sweating through my sheets and hiding from the sun inside my air-conditioned house. I hope the weather changes soon.
