4NO's sweatin' with an oldie!

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Still no air at work,, I do not mean AIR CONDITIONING PEOPLE, I mean NO AIR circulation in the ceiling vents!! A/C will be a wonder , but just to breathe air that is not total humidity and hotter than outdoors, is sought. I estimated the temp in my area today at about 100 degrees.. 95% humidity.. The usual HVAC that services here is on vacation.. They finally called somebody else to come in..

The job I do is usually done by twenty- thirty year olds.. I am sixty. The good part is:99% of my cardio is done at work,, my heart rate is always up at least 50-75%. For almost my whole shift.

I was so tired last night, DD said I walked into my bedroom took my glasses off, fell on the bed and within one minute, she heard me snoring.. I do not remember anything.. I almost slept through the night.. one potty break,, usually it is every hour..

I cannot imagine elders who live alone and fall asleep in the heat and never wake up..

if any of you knows anybody like that, it may be a lifesaver to them, just to call them or stop by.. somebody from your church, a neighbor, relative..

...but for the Grace of God go I...

    Great reminder! I am so sorry you have it so bad at work right now...I'm just miserable in the humidity outside...but it seems to be going now!

    I've worked places like that, in my younger days - I don't think I'd last now, and I'm the same age you are. No wonder it knocked you out by the time you got home...

    I can't imagine. Sounds like a literal sweat shop. But now I'm getting more and more curious about just what it is that you do.

Hope you're still keeping hydrated.
