As I’ve mentioned on this blog, my Facebook, and my Twitter, Spring 2009 has not been the best when it comes to weather. We are still getting nights where the temperature drops to near freezing. The days rarely get above 55 degrees. And when they do, they go flying up to 82 degrees for one afternoon and then come crashing back down to 50 degrees the next day. That kind of rapid weather change usually brings me a stuffed up head and the potential for a cold. Sunny days are few and far between, with most of them being overcast, cloudy, gray, and raining. I am not a fan of Spring 2009.
However, always looking for the bright side, I have found that there is one advantage to the cold, dreary spring. While looking through my closet full of clothes on Sunday, I noticed that I have several sweatshirts that I didn’t wear at all in the past six months. Even though I like all of those sweatshirts, they never made it into the rotation and have just hung, all lonely and not-worn, in my closet since the winter of 2007-2008. With a few more days of weather forecast to be dreary and in the 50s to 60s, I made it a goal to wear as many of those sweatshirts as possible before summer arrives.
I’m on Day 2 of Sweatshirtageddon 2009. Today I’m rocking a navy blue Old Navy sweatshirt. It’s very soft and comfy and deserved to be much better represented during the cold winter we just experienced. After a brief hiatus on Wednesday when I will wear something nicer for a dinner with my parents and girlfriend, Sweatshirtageddon 2009 returns powerfully on Thursday with another neglected sweatshirt from the back of my closet.
Let’s hope I don’t discover some other neglected clothes and feel the need for Hammer-Pantsageddon 2009 to occur this summer.
