Baby it’s hot outside!
I am melting faster than M&M’s in child’s grubby hand.
The kids and I spent the afternoon in the library, because it was the only air-conditioned space in town where I didn’t need to spend a dime. Tonight we went to McDonald’s, bought a drink and just sat in the cool. I’ve never loved McDonald’s like I loved him tonight. I even forgive them for mixing up orders in the past and putting mustard on my burger.
Now I know what you’re thinking…don’t I usually complain about the cold? I realize I should be overwhelmed with gratitude now that the red mark on the thermometer is rising, and I am. It’s just that it’s been rising to 96 degrees. The TV reporter said that with the humidity, the heat index was 105 today, and we all know that everything they say on television is truth.
We just aren’t prepared for this much heat all at once. We only have one little air-conditioner in my room, so that means the kids are camping on our floor. Heaven help me when I wake up for a middle of the night potty run. It will be like navigating an obstacle course with my eyes closed.
The good news is that it’s just too hot to eat much. If the heat wave lingers, I may shed a few pounds. Maybe it will linger for the next six months? Hey, crazier things have happened!
Tomorrow I am going swimming, even if that means filling the ice bucket with water and flapping one toe at a time.
I even bought a new and much needed swimsuit. You can see it HERE, but mine is black. Now I am not a fan of cheap swimsuits, but this one is actually pretty good. It’s even got a little shaping firmness to it. So hats off to Wal-Mart. You were there to fit my budget in a pinch.
