What Do You Hate About Spring?

Can you name five things you hate about Spring and why you feel that way?  When I was asked that question, it took a long time for me to come up with an answer.  

Hate spring

I searched the web and realized many people do not like Spring for a variety of reasons. Here are a few:
  • Spring cleaning
  • Window washing
  • Cleaning the garage
  • Gardening
  • Allergies
  • Going on a diet to fit into the new swimsuit
That was little help.  I don't spring clean.  I'm pretty anal about keeping my house, garage, yard, drawers, and closets in order so the need to purge is not relevant.

In fact, I have written about why I don't clean my house.  I found the secret on how to stop cleaning and share it here.  

Many women my age have come to realize that dieting is overrated.  Being comfortable with your body and enjoying all food -- that's way more fun!

Window washing -- that's a tough one and really does need to be done regularly.  I trade a service for THAT service and viola - it gets done.  

Gardening -- if I had my way about it, I would have a lawn of pebbles or cement.  I enjoy everyone's garden but not the least bit interested in maintaining my own.  So, that is one service I will splurge on and have a gentleman cut my lawn and eat weeds, each week.  

Allergies -- never had them so that's not an issue.

B U T......
I was supposed to share what I hate about Spring so here is my list

Summer is not far behind.  I loathe the heat and have good reasons.  I know many people agree with me on this one.  For a good laugh and 10 reasons to skip summer all together, click here.
Airfares go up dramatically.  It is common practice for airlines to hike their prices during Spring Break -- and totally unfair for those who travel regularly.
Time 'marches' on.  Inevitably when March rolls around and summer is not far behind, the realization that another year is going by rapidly is shocking.  I do most of my Christmas shopping during Spring and Summer sales so it makes it appear even closer to the end of another year. Here's 11 ways to avoid the Christmas rush altogether.


That's all I was able to come up with -- sorry.  What about YOU?

Spring is such a beautiful time of year when you see the new birth of plants, the smell of fresh flowers, hearing baby birds chirping and touching my brand new grand daughter's soft cheeks.  This is what makes Spring special but I still want to skip SUMMER.

Do you have reasons to hate Spring or any other season?
