Soooo HOT!

Thursday, July 18, 2013

It has been soooooo hot lately that I am finding it more than difficult to sleep properly and through the night!

I finally suggested we put the window-shaker in (aka air conditioner) in the living room, because our aging pet is having a difficult time breathing in this weather and I don't really want to come down and find him dead from overheating! So the hubby actually got out of his chair and did it -- right then! That's when you know it's really hot out -- when the man who hates to move out of his LaZ boy actually gets out of the chair. So we put the air conditioner in the window at the bottom of the stairs, hoping the cool air would drift up. It didn't. But the dog is fine, thank you for asking.

I am finding it very difficult to get motivated to do anything, including housework! Jacob (9) has soccer tonight, and it has been called the hottest day of the year so far. I worry about the kids running around in this heat, but there will be lots of water available, and that's about all you can do. It's the last game of the season, and it is only for an hour, and then I will take him swimming, along with his younger brother.

I haven't a clue as to what to make for supper, but I am leaning toward BLTs. Hubby and I will eat them, Jake gets pizza and pop at soccer, and Nick won't eat anything because he's Nick and very, very fussy. He would eat the pizza, but it is only being offered to the players at this time.

Somehow everything will be okay. God will deem it necessary for rain to fall, and that should cool down our area, which will allow for better sleep, which will make me a nicer person, which will inspire me to clean my house and get back into exercise. See?? It is all connected!

    It's so hot here too. They keep saying we will get storms and it will cool off but they never come!! Good luck and keep cool!

    I can relate to that reasoning! I haven't been sleeping well lately for the same reason.

    I can't sleep when it's hot either. I think one night I ended up actually opening the refrigerator and sticking like half of my body in there cause it was so hot! emoticon Right now, in our neck of the woods, it's been raining non stop so I kinda do wish it would finally end, but I also know what it's like to have no rain non stop and it be scorching hot outside! Can't seem to have a balance lol

I hope the weather becomes more cooperative for you! Hope you have a great day!
