The Heat is Affecting My Mojo

Thursday, July 18, 2013

This heat is awful. I am losing all my giddy up. I haven't exercised hardly at all this week. I just have no oomph to do so.

Actually, I don't think it has been a bad thing to take some time off as I was getting sore. I feel good now. I just don't feel like doing anything. My upstairs is actually a finished attic so, even with the air conditioning, it stays pretty warm up here. This is not conducive to working out.

I think I am also burned out. I really want to go away for a few days and my husband has agreed, but plane tickets are so expensive. My friend said we could go to her "lake" house. It is about 3.5 hours from here and in the middle of no where. I am really not a "no where" type of person. To get anywhere from there, even to rent a boat, is over 30 minutes. Driving there at night scares me because you can't see anything and there are a lot of deer. Not to mention her lake isn't one you can really swim in. It is filled with green algae.

I thought about renting a cottage on a lake, but the rentals are so expensive. We live among lots of lakes. I would like to just get on a boat for a day. I love water. I think I have the summer blahs if that is possible.

I know DH wants to go to Washington DC, but that is a trip for November not now. Talk about heat. YUCK! I have been trying to plan a trip to Vegas like I did with my mom every summer. Thought about going for 4 days and spending the days by the pool and just relaxing, but, again, plane tickets are not cheap anymore.

I guess I am just out of sorts. I used to travel all the time in the summer going to horse shows, but I don't show anymore. So, now I feel like I am stuck here emoticon

    The heat can really be draining! Hopefully it will break soon and cool off. Anywhere you go would be a chance to relax. Enjoy!

    I would jump at that lake house middle of nowhere or not. The point is to get away right?It could be lots of fun and a real adventure. emoticon

    I know the feeling! The heat and not being able to afford travel right now! That is why we like our day trips, just get in the car, drive no more than 2-3 hours...take a walk, or just find a nice place to eat, go to a mall, whatever is fun and just go back home that night. All you spend is gas and eating out.
    Works like a charm for us!
    I did invite you to do a virtual walk with me next week on the feed-see my blog for details. You could always do it in a mall, or like we do, find a nice place to walk that is lit up at night.
    Hang in there! Hope you get your get up and go back soon! emoticon

    I do think "summer blahs" are possible--especially when it's been so hot. Even a day on the lake, like you thought, could snap you out of your funk. Good luck!

    Washington is definitely not a summer friendly trip. I hope you figure something out for a mini-vacation.

    Hope you find the little something that gets your mojo back. Even in the heat, a little JC times does wonders. Certainly there must be a water trip Groupon that is calling your name. I'm hoping to catch a dolphin or sunset cruise along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.
