Warum der Sommer stinkt / Why summer stinks

Angeblich regnet es hier zu viel und wir bekommen nicht genug Sonne und Vitamin D. Ich weiss, ich weiss, alle Leute lieben Sommer und Sonnenschein. Aber ich NICHT!!!
Es ist zu heiss und ich schwitze zu viel. Phillip und Spencer haben ganz schlimmen Heuschnupfen und wir müssen ständig Medizin kaufen, die dann doch nicht hilft oder nur minimal. Talitha hat Angst vor den Wespen und Bienen und zieht daher den ganzen Tag lang an meiner Hand, weil sie raus möchte, aber nicht alleine (Phillip zählt anscheinend nicht). Winston, andererseits, will immer draussen sein, auch ganz allein, was mir Sorgen macht, denn unser Grundstück (naja, es gehört Bob und Deanna) ist sehr gross und nicht umzäunt. Winston ist sehr unabhängig und sturrköpfig. Plus Winston (und Phillip und ich) kriegt leicht Sonnenbrand, und selbst wenn ich ihn eincreme, was mache ich mit seinem Kopf? Leider lässt er keine Mützen auf. Und ich hasse diese blöden Sonnenschutzcremes. Die Kinder können es nicht leiden wenn ich versuche sie einzucremen, alles ist schmierig (einschliesslich unser Holzfussboden) und es lässt sich nicht abwaschen, und die Klamotten bekommen Flecken von der Creme, die nicht mehr rauskommen. Ausserdem haben Talitha und Winston Ausschlag...von der Hitze, oder der Sonnenschutzcreme, oder wer weiss was. Abends wollen die Kinder nicht ins Bett weil es noch hell ist, aber alle sind überhitzt und übermüdet. Ergo, der Sommer stinkt und ich will mein Geld zurückerstattet haben!!!

Supposedly it rains too much here and we don’t get enough sun and vitamin D. I know, I know, everyone loves summer and sunshine. But I DON’T!!! It’s too hot and I sweat too much. Phillip and Spencer have bad allergies and we constantly need to buy medicine, which ends up not helping much anyway. Talitha is scared of the yellow jackets and bees and is always pulling on my hand because she wants to go outside but not by herself (apparently Phillip doesn’t count). Winston, on the other hand, wants to be outside all the time, even all alone, which worries me because our property (well it’s Bob and Deanna’s) is very big and not fenced. Winston is very independent and stubborn. In addition, Winston (and Phillip and I) sunburns easily, and even when I put sunscreen on him what do I do with his head? Unfortunately, he doesn’t do well with hats. And I hate these dumb sunscreen lotions. The kids don’t like to get all lotioned up, everything gets greasy (including our wood floor), the stuff doesn’t wash off, and the clothes get stains, which don’t come out. Furthermore, Talitha and Winston have a rash…from the heat, or the sunscreen lotion, or who knows what. At night, the kids don’t want to go to bed because it’s still light outside, but everyone is overheated and tired. Therefore, summer stinks and I want a refund!!!
And I hate all you people that love the sun and the heat, because you can actually enjoy summer with your tan skin while my legs stay pasty white no matter what I do and my nose gets redder and redder, and you can wear cute clothes and even layer because you don’t sweat, while I start to glisten just thinking about stepping outside, and you wear cute sandals, too, which I can never find when I look for some, and besides my feet sweat too much as well, even in sandals, and then I slide all around…spring and summer, argh!

Maike- you are hysterical. Did you hear? We're moving to Hawaii. Does that mean you'll never come visit? =) Remember, I sweat a ton too. It's all about the white shirts so no one can tell you are sweating!
