Like: What we did on any given day or weekend. The obsessions of three year olds. Our family outings. And so on.
In fact, the last pictures I posted online are from when the thermometer read 80 and we all thought summer had come early round these parts.
But summer fled as quickly as it had come, leaving behind the typical March weather - and now the typical April weather. Which isn't sunny or warm. The wintery coats I hung up when we were all wearing short sleeves have come back out. And I'm wearing boots inside.
This weather is a good metaphor for life - at least for us pessimists. The good news is often followed by the bad, so fast that you have to sit down or risk falling over. But in this case, I know that spring will eventually come, followed by another summer. Mentally, I'm very much in tune with the weather at the moment. Today we find out whether the sun will keep shining for the time being or whether we'll be living in shadow again for a little while.
It's times like this that I wish I could change my pessimistic nature. I assume rain is coming, not sunshine.
Maybe I need help... have any of you managed to change your whole outlook? How did you do it? How long did it take?
