Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

By Monday, September 30, 2013 47 , Permalink 0

Dear Summer,

I am sorry to say that this year you sucked. It is a bit harsh, but you sucked, a lot. I honestly cannot remember a worst summer.

You were beautiful. You gave us countless days full of sunshine.Yeah, 2013 was one of the warmest Summers PNW has seen in a while. A. started school and took into a new adventure. But you still sucked.

At least for me.

See, I tried to look past it, I did. But I was sick for 70% of your duration. And that is not cool….at all!

Between getting 2 colds with a week of recovery between them, countless migraines and depression, was it really necessary to also throw Hand, Mouth and Foot Disease (HMFD) into the mix? Apparently 5 migraines in one month was not enough, huh?

Having HMFD was the worst part of you. But I will leave all the horrible and nasty details out of it because it made me quite miserable for at least 3 weeks. Imagine not being able to eat because your gums and teeth hurt…

So, I am leaving you now…moving on to Autumn and I am very happy about it.

I will leave you now. Hopefully you will bring a better Summer next year.

Goodbye Summer.

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn Mine sucked but…

How was your Summer?

    Summer? Is that what it was called? It went by so fast. It either hot and rainy or was too chilly for the daycare kids to swim. My Garden flooded out and was a big ole nothing. I worked 70 to 75 hours per week and have been exhausted for months. Every time we went camping it either rained or was cold. I would have to say that summer sucked also!

    Awwww. sorry you had a bad summer. Hope you’re all better now. I just know Autumn is going to bring you sunshine!!! Hang in there with us!

      I hope I get some sunshine too…and a most needed break! I doubt the sun will shine since the rain has just begun, but I do love me some Autumn chilly nights by the fire (and now that I have a cat to cuddle with me, this season will be so much better!!)

    It wasn’t a good summer here either. Not because of health concerns thankfully, It was just a stressful time and season of our lives.
    And the weather couldn’t make up it’s mind almost as much as some people in our lives who made promises they didn’t keep which left us scrambling to recover some semblance of a summer vacation. I look at my kids faces and know we failed. But hey, we tried.

    So, yeah I’m with you, summer needs to move on. We just weren’t that in to you.

    Hope you feel better soon Sofia!

      Yeah, Summer was bad. Glad Autumn is here….and hope it goes wonderfully for you and your family! 🙂

    It definitely sounds like summer was pretty horrible to you. I’ve frequently complained that this summer went by very quickly, but I take all that back now because everything you went through must have made it seem like an eternity!

    I can relate to your teeth and gum issues. I have genetically terrible teeth and have had Periodontal Disease since my teens. In the past handful of years, I have been barely able to eat much of anything and as of late, I have been trying to get used to using the left side of my mouth as little as possible. Not easy, terrible, and I am so sorry you had to go through that. I hope autumn is much, much better to you.

      Even though I was sick most of the time, Summer did go by fast (yei!). Hand, Mouth, Feet Disease sucked. I know how painful it can get and I cannot imagine little preschoolers going through with it (HFMD is very common in young children). I am hoping that Autumn goes better.

    Our summer went by way too quickly here. I am not even sure I remember it existing! 😉

    Oh man I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been sick most of the time. Luckily I didn’t have any health issues (now last year was another story), not since I’m taking lots of vitamins and minerals and started with iodine. One of the best things ever.

    • Sofia
      September 30, 2013

      I will have to follow suit and start taking vitamins!! Glad your 2013 went way better than mine!

    Wow! HMFD is nasty stuff. I haven’t contracted it yet, thank goodness, but I know those that have. After the summer you’ve had, I hope your fall is much better. It has to be right??

    Sorry your summer sucked. I get migraines too and I’ve been battling mild depression as well so I really do feel for you. Autumn is my favorite season, so I’ll talk to it and make sure it is awesome for you. Just let me know if it gives you any hassle and I’ll have some words with him.

    • Sofia
      September 30, 2013

    HMFD is no fun. I remember my youngest picked it up from daycare one year. It was pretty miserable. I hope things get to looking better for you!!

    • Sofia
      September 30, 2013

      It is the worst thing ever!! I would rather get a migraine than get HMFD again!!

    Thank you for your honesty. so often everyone says how great their summers were and don’t tell about the 5 migraines. My summer was full of driving my freshman back and forth to school. OH Joy. Yeah I am happy fall is here.

    • Sofia
      September 30, 2013

      Summer sucked. Hope Fall makes it up to you! Hope you won’t have to drive that much 🙂

    It rained for the entire month of July and part of August where I live. You would have thought it was Seattle or something, then we had two weeks of heat, now its fall. Its so weird that summer is over. I’m so sorry you were ill for most of it!

    • Sofia
      September 30, 2013

      We had a gorgeous summer and now the rain is back. But when you are sick most of the time….well, you get to hang out a lot with your pillow!! So ready for some Autumn weather (aka rain)!!

    Awww, I’m so sorry you had to deal with all of that! I suffered from migraines for years and thankfully got a doctor to help them go away. And we had Hand, Foot and Mouth go through our home 2 years ago. I had a daycare kid bring it in. It hit all of the parents too – it was awful. Hopefully next year will be better for you!

    this summer was a so-so one for us, we had two deaths in the family and my husband lost his job, we tried to make the best of it especially for our kids–NOW he’d found another job and the new year is approaching I’m looking for a new leaf to turn. -Hope it will for you too,
    I love the photo

    Awww…. and it went by much too quickly, didn’t it? I’m sorry you didn’t have a good Summer 🙁 It’s supposed to be the best time of the year for many people. But now we move onto the jolly Holidays! Hope it will be better these next few months.
