Okay....I'm just gonna put it out there.... I HATE (bold, italicized, underlined, 3 font sizes bigger) THE HEAT!!!
It's more than just the normal "oh it's hot".... I have a reason to fear the heat!! It makes me pass out...... Well, it happened once, when I was a teenager, but I'm guessing it's not something that would be better with me being older now. Taking into consideration the fact that there were extenuating circumstances involved with the events of my youth, it was still enough to scare the crap out of me!
Usually my family just prepares for me to be ultra lazy & grumpy and I lay around making the best of it. But yesterday, for some reason, I got myself all worked up about the heat. The forecast was for 2 days of 90+ degrees with high humidity....YUCK! Now I work in a really nicely air conditioned office (actually we didn't even have to turn the a/c on until late afternoon because the building still had some "winter cool" left) but I knew I was going to have to go out to get the mail....sure wasn't going to let the 85 yr old boss go out in the heat....and I had to do a lunch run. For some reason it caused a full-on anxiety attack. Now, when I went out to get the mail it was only 85 so it wasn't bad. Still not yet 90 for the lunch run so all that fuss for nothing! So I spent the afternoon talking myself down & eventually beating myself up for being sooooo silly!
Today I'm much more laid back. The humidity isn't so bad & I only had to go get the mail (it was 90 by that time today).
Isn't it crazy the trips our minds can take us on!?!?!? I am super glad that there are cooler temps for this weekend while we camp (no a/c in sight!) I just hope this 90 degree stuff doesn't become "the norm"..... I really HATE it!
