I have acquired a love for water that I didn't know was inside of me.

I drink lots of water every day. I have several containers in my fridge just waiting for me to open the fridge to get some water. Someone earlier had a problem with water. My response was that every time I open the fridge I drink water.. That keeps me from eating all of the time

Although there is a condition called hyponatremia, generally you will drink to your thirst level. Hyponatremia is when you sweat so much that you lose sodium and electrolytes and are only replacing water. This is a concern when exercising heavily outdoors for long periods at a time (running a marathon in the heat, for example).

You don't mention how much water you are drinking. A great way to tell if you are getting enough water, is to check your urine output. If it's the color of apple juice, you could drink more. If it's clear or very light, you are well hydrated already. It should look like a glass of water with lemons squeezed into it (slightly yellow, but not dark).

Can you ever drink too much water. It has been so hot so I have been drinking alot of water. Can that hurt me in the long run or short run?
