The weather man on the news the other night said this past week has been the hottest in 10 years. I don't know if I believe that or not. But it sure sucks. I hate to say this but I'm so over the summer. I'm ready for it to cool down. My flowers are all wilted. But I'm ready to rip them up anyway. I'm tired of watering them. I'm tired of weeding them. I'm tired of sweating my ass off to do it. And they look like crap. They've turned a hideous crunchy brown here lately.
It's downright miserable to be outside. It's the kind of hot and humid where you just can't breathe. The heat index this afternoon was up to 106. The actual temp was hovering around 96/97. That's too hot for Ohio. I can't wait to see what my electric bill will be next month. I'm sure it won't be pretty. I keep my house cold enough that I need sweat pants on. Love that. Not sure that'll work when baby comes home. But for now I snuggle under my covers at night. Ahhhhh....thank goddess for central air.
The first day of school in my district was Monday. The schools were closed the rest of the week because they don't have air. Wonder how that's going to fair this year seeing as how they've already used 4 of their 5 calamity days during the first week? That can't be good.
Feel free to remind me of this post in about 5 months when I'm bitching about shoveling snow.
