Another day in the life....

I didn't have plans for the day. Emily's first Monday of summer vacation started out painfully with a wire on her braces that had shifted into her gums. We were able to get an appointment at the orthodontist's office close to her Dad's house. Instead of his picking her up tonight to spend the night, I brought her over in the morning and he took her to the appointment. Now I had the day alone, and I was actually lonely. I got many loads of laundry done, but the house was really too hot to stick around. It was too hot to go to the pool. I checked out the movie listings, saw that Knocked Up was playing in 25 minutes, and off I went. A lot of people must have had the same idea because the theatres were crowded. It was refreshingly cool in there, and the movie was crude, but extremely funny. I came home to my quiet and too warm house, put away laundry and made the beds, and knew I had to jump in the pool. Decadent, huh? It's great having a pool in the neighborhood that's just a couple of minutes away. I only stayed for an hour, but it was nice. I came home and grilled some chicken for dinner, watered the plants, and here I am. It's been a really long day, and a long 'weekend.' I wish I could go into my cool room now, and just read for a while, but the upstairs in this house is never, ever cool. I'll go up with my heavy duty fan and fall asleep to the warm breeze. Summer is here. Tomorrow promises to be another scorcher. Can you tell this heat is getting to me?

I just bought a brand new heating and air unit for this house. It has made the biggest difference in cooling it down and cooling down the expenses.

Hang in there, summer will be over before we know it. Now that I say it, I hope that doesn't come back to bite me. :)

Ouch Poor Emily, I hope they got that taken care of quickly.

I cna't stand being hot...I don't think I would do well in a hot area. Might as well enjoy that pool while you can!

The air at my place is always on. It's way to hot during the Summer here in the South to not have it on. Plus, my wife would kill me if I didn't have it one especially now.

Have a good day and try to keep cool!

I could always tell when I got home if my mom felt lonely while I was away. She's a very subtly person, but it would be just a sudden eagerness to ask me questions or she would sit on the couch with me for awhile even though she doesn't watch anything on t.v. except "General Hospital". :)

Oh i can't take the heat myself...i'm an a/c girl all the way..i get rather cranky in the heat and humidity, so bless your heart for having to brave the temperatures.

Go for another swim soon!

Try turning off the vents in your basement, some light blocking shades and have the unit checked out. Hope it's better for you today!

Did you melt?
I haven't heard from you in a few days, and I'm afraid you melted.

I lost some chocolate that way once, and it was sad. This would be even worse.

Thanks for stopping by--I'm so glad you didn't melt in the heat!
