For all the complaining I've done about how cold it was so late in the year, I was looking forward to summer and its heat on a strictly air-conditioned basis. It was 80+ degrees when I got home from work yesterday afternoon. We ate out, and after we got home, we got fans turned on in all the rooms, but it never really got comfortable. I couldn't get the baby to stay asleep, but Baby Girl Cassey slept like a log--every time I went into their room, she was in the same position, clearly sleeping very hard in the intermittently oscillated mugginess. And I went into their room several times. I, myself, got to sleep a little before 2... I think. 6:30 came way too quickly.
My neck is sore so I can barely turn my head, and I've been dizzy for most of this morning and quite a bit of last night, too... but i don't know why. I'm pretty sure it's not related to the heat, but I don't know what has caused my sense of balance to be off.
My happiness is that I am here, at work, in an air-conditioned office, while my husband waits at home for a repairman who will get there this afternoon, dealing with his family, who are having their house leveled today and had asked to come over while it happened, and then never showed up and never showed up, so that he finally went and picked them up to bring them over... and I spoke with him this afternoon and heard a child in the background, so I asked why his 6-year-old nephew wasn't at school. His answer was that the boy refused to get on the bus this morning.
My poor husband is having a much worse time than I am right now. I feel for him... but if I were at home, I'd be sleeping. And that would be nice, too.
