Spring:: She is dead to me

After losing an hour of very meaningful sleep this weekend and “spring”ing forward, I was ready for one of my favorite seasons to arrive.
Monday and Tuesday were Beautiful! Some of my favorite sights were here!
Scrumptious Strawberries: {from Sam's! Did you know they have super big fruit, too? And the fruit bowl was a gift from my mom years ago- most likely from TJ Maxx or Marshall's- something that you'll never find again, you know.}

Blooming daffodils- and soon to bloom little buds (the ones after the original ones that died in the BLIZZARD OF 09!!! light snow last weekend):
And bare little legs with shorts! WOOHOO!
But today, we are back to yuckiness and 56 as a HIGH. What?

Why, you ask? Well, Spring has tricked us all. She is a tease and I, for one, am upset. At who? {And I know it’s supposed to be “whom”, but that is sooo presumptuous.} I don’t know. But I think this is affecting my mood. It's called Seasonal Tease Disorder and I'm tired of it.

Speaking of the hopeful arrival of spring and shorts, can I ask you something?
Do you shave your legs all the time?

I have a secret to share with you. I RARELY shave mine. As in, it might be a month or so in the winter between shavings. And this is not only because I’m cheap (you know- expensive razors and all), but also because I am uncoordinated. I can’t for the life of me shave standing up in a shower! I have to get in a bath tub {with piping hot water, preferably} to make it happen. And how often does that occur? About as often as I get my hair highlighted or a pedicure- not nearly as often as I need. {I kind of put all those things in the same category of special perks!}

Here’s the nice part, though: I have fine, blonde hair, so you can’t really tell. Until I feel it flap in the wind when I walk down the hall in the mornings before I put my jeans on. Then I can tell it might be time to take care of a little hairy business. And my hubby doesn't care all that much {I don't think...}. Jason's test is if he can physically pull the hair, then it's too long.

But I am a strong believer in the theory that if you don’t shave, you don’t have to shave. Anybody else? I heard this a long time ago and it has been true for me. What’s your routine?

Is this a gross topic?

Delayed Spring is good news for the rest of the world: I’m back to jeans for another week or so. Next time maybe I’ll look like this lady right here . {If you get talking pigs at that link, scroll down to "Bicycle, Unwronged". It will totally be worth your time for a good giggle.}

Just an FYI - I shave nearly EVERY day - I'm weird and OCD like that!

I am defintiely lax in the winter too...but lucky like you with fine, blonde hairs...I'm a once-a-week shaver in the winter!
And yes, what a tease spring was here too. We had about two weeks of amazing weather, and now freezing rain. Boo! But, we did need the rain I guess. :)

I shave every time I shower. If I don't the hair makes my legs itch. I can't take it! :)

I only shave once a week during the winter and MAYBE twice a week during the summer. My leg hair is blonde like yours and so you can't really tell. I'm refusing to go back to winter clothes, Spring is here and that is that! :) So sandals for me until September!!


BTW>>> I feel stupid, what am I suppossed to comment as? I just do it as anonymous...?!

I'm with you on your STD (hee hee, that sounded really bad). We got a few inches of snow here the other day and I've been in the dumps since then. Hope you can keep spring alive inside your house! :)
