Amen Sister. I have been saying this ALL month. It is particularly noticeable after moving from CA to MN - people here can not seem to get enough of winter - they talk about it all summer, and as soon as August first comes they say, "it was a good Summer, but it is getting too hot. I can't wait for Fall, I love Fall." And I want to yell in their face - enjoy what you have while you have it because before you know it you will be wearing so many clothes your arms will be sticking straight out and you will be sprinting from house to car, car to house, that all you will be doing is talking about how you can not wait for Summer! You said what I have been crying all month. It is still summer people!

I think that "craptastic" might be my new favorite word. And I'm going to use it when I call the manager of Hobby Lobby to complain about the idiot who decided that it was time to install the FIVE freaking rows of Christmas sludge that I was forced to walk through on my way to the shrinky dinks. Seriously.

Don't set foot in any Hallmark stores, Finny. They start selling Christmas ornaments in JULY!

Sharon - I love that you think my attitude is positive. Bless you.

Meg - Back to school? In two weeks? I always wished school started one week earlier when I was a kid so that I could have my birthday at school. I missed it by ONE WEEK my entire childhood and it was frankly scarring.

Lera - We need to start some sort of campaign to keep this from happening. Perhaps I will not buy ANYTHING holiday-ish until I deem it appropriate. Like, say, 10/30 for Halloween, 11/23 for Thanksgiving and 12/24 for Christmas. Take that!

Melisa - Please share my new stategy (above) with your friends and retailers. NO MORE HOLIDAY STUFF IN SUMMER DAMN IT!

Sara - Hail? In Milan? In summer? How un-chic! You tell that winter weather to back the hell off.

Jan - Does this happen at your house? Dear. I am sorry. We have a neighborhood decoration contest, but thankfully my neighbors never win, and they don't feel the need to keep trying. Sadly, this doesn't discourage them either.

At least your neighbors sole goal is not to win first place in the Christmas light contest each year. And the worst part is, they usually win and feel the need to ramp it up even more the following year!

I would love to be as optimistic as you...but we just had a HUGE hail storm last night that has my sense of summer completely warped!

You go on with your summer love'n, flip-flop footed self!I agree that seeing Halloween deco before Labor Day makes me nutty too!

I saw some autumn-looking candies the other day, too. I can't figure out why retailers rush these things. No one (NO ONE!!!) is thinking about Halloween in August. Why do WE know this, but the retailers and advertisers do not?

2007-08-08T18:23:00.000-07:00

Right you are! It's bad enough that all the back-to-school stuff is in full swing, and that actually is only 2 weeks away. Wait until it starts getting dark early again and we have a reason to actually mourn the end of summer. What's the big rush, People?!

Your positive attitude is great!
I am so in tune with it that I feel I can handle the 6 year old in my house who begs for the leaves to change colours - and doesn't see why I laugh when she then states she never wants summer to end - it's all from the other side!
