Suck it up and drive on …

The first round of seasonal colds have hit our household this week. First it was Libs and I, and then today, Reese woke up dripping and coughing. I kept the girls home from school because of it, but for me it has been a pretty functional cold. You know the kind. These are the viruses that don’t have you stuck in bed with a fever. No this has been the kind of cold where normal functioning is presumably doable. Where you are just a little “under the weather” and where being amongst the well is met without question. I gotta say that this is even worse than being sick in bed! Being straight up sick people understand why you aren’t ON IT. But with this “kinda sick” there is no mercy. Even I don’t cut myself much slack, often telling myself to stop whining and ignore the semi miserable state I’m in. Ugh.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you suck it up and drive on!!!


Dressing the part …

I don’t want to brag or anything but we got some real Fall weather here in my part of Southern California today. OK fine, it was for like 2 hours and it was rainy-ish. But I also saw some leaves on the ground that had changed color. It was chilly too! I had to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Sure, I might be sweating now, but I even wore boots. Whoa.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you dress the part!!!

Hot and cold adventures …

I have traveled around California quite a few times. However, after traveling up and down the state several times over the past year I’ve come to two conclusions. First, California is beautiful. I have lived here since I was two years old and I can’t believe how much of this state is still left to be explored. It seems like each and every mile of it contains a breathtaking unique element that is just waiting to be discovered. And that brings me to my second conclusion. There is no rhyme or reason to California’s weather temperatures. HA!

But no, really.

In the past few days of travel alone we experienced a 50 degree swing in temperatures. That is just crazy! We saw temps in the 50s and at one point we passed through an area that was 109 degrees. Whoa. Seriously California, make up your mind!

Well, I hope you all have a day filled with hot and cold adventures!!!

Ready for summer …

I didn’t mind the colder and rainier weather we had this past winter and Spring. I actually liked it. Which is really weird for me. Recently we have had the return of our gorgeous sunny and warm California weather. I didn’t realize how much I had missed it. And it’s return has made the past two days of gloomy weather a real bummer!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are ready for summer!!!

I froze my soul … 

I am giving a big shout out today to anyone living in a colder climate than Southern California. Yes, I know there are TONS of you. And you all are surely higher on the survival of the fittest ladder than myself. You people living in freezing weather for months on end deserve a medal and a special place in Heaven. This morning I ran in 44 degrees and haven’t been the same since. Seriously, I think parts of me will never be the same again. Important parts! 

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t freeze your soul!!!

Freezing …

It has been crazy hot here lately. It usually doesn’t bother me at all. I honestly love the heat. So when I say I’ve had enough of it, you know that it has to be bad. This morning I checked my weather app and it said temperatures would be in the mid 70s. FINALLY a break from the heat. And it really was! Except at about 10:30 a.m. I remembered why I am an advocate for a year-round summer.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t feel like you are freezing!!!
