Airing of Grievances...

If anyone knows me you will know I HATE winter. I hate the wetness... I hate the bulky winter coat that makes you panic while wearing it in the car...I hate the cold... I hate the ice storms.... I hate how my laundry had doubled due to wearing socks again... I hate it...
So I came up with this little Pollyanna theory for myself. I have applied it to my children as well.

We the RitterB's are only allowed to gripe for one season. Pick your season and gripe away. If you hate the blistering heat... Make the complaint! Whine all you want! No one can stop your pent up feelings. Why are they pent up you ask? Because of this reason.... You are not allowed to complain during the bitter cold winter days. You have one season and one season only to boo hoo about the weather. So... I bit my tongue this summer when the heat seemed unbearable. And today the weather had turned cold.

I HATE COLD!

Fyi: No I am not going to wash my mouth out with soap for using the word "HATE" I really do hate cold weather!

Come down to Texas. It's rarely cold here! Sometimes I end up wearing shorts on Thanksgiving or Christmas! Send the cold down this way - I'll hold onto it for you!

Oh, Kiera, I hate the cold for many of the same reasons. Of course, the opposite extreme, here, isn't so great either.

You need to make your trip out here. THe weather is gorgeous (finally). It's highs in upper 70s/low 80s and NO humidity somehow. I'm finally enjoying it here. We can actually go outside!! Come visit!

Oh I'm there with you. I have a light box for my winter blues..I'm not even kidding.
I just tried to find something warm to wear to church tomorrow. I can't do it. I'm just going to run fast from the car to the building.
