105 Degress today! Yucky

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Today I woke up with no energy. I decided I would try and sleep without a medication I have been taking every night that helps with getting a good nights sleep. (People with Lupus have difficulty sleeping and this medication really helps). I kept waking up, but would go back to sleep pretty easily, but that is not the same as sleeping straight through the night. Won't do that again, I need my good sleep to feel 100%.

I was lazy and read the paper. I kept looking at the temperature outside, in the shade raise up and up. It finally hit 105 degrees. I still had a chore to do, go to the bank and to the market. I normally wouldn't have a problem but as I wrote yesterday my AC in the car is broken, my car is black, it is a Corvette with a t-top, so it can get very warm. So I drive with the windows down and if not for the wind, I think it would be even worse. Did manage to get those errands done.

After I got home I ate lunch which was salad with some low fat string cheese. That is all I could handle. The house is cool, I keep the AC inside at 71 degrees, which Jeff will lower when he gets home. He pays for it, so he can keep this house as cold as he likes.

Did not attempt the gym today. Did attempt a short walk with Phred @ 5pm was still 100 degrees. Phred kept heading for the front door, or sitting next to it, wanting to go out. I finally caved in, put a hat on and off we went. He got a few houses and was walking so slow, so I only took him one short block. I may go out later after 7pm on my own to get in some steps and miles. Phred needs a haircut again to be comfortable in this weather. It has only be 5 weeks or so, and his hair grew pretty fast this time.

Jeff is not home from work yet. Not having the healthiest of dinners tonight but too hot too cook. Beef hot dogs on the grill, mac & cheese, plus some apple sauce. I didn't eat much all day so I think I will be ok.

    That hot weather also saps the energy that you do have because lupus does take your energy away.

    It is so hard to eat when hot. The hot dogs on the grill sound good. Hope it cools down soon for you! Poor Fred!

    It's hard to do anything when it gets that hot. The week we were packing the camper to start home, we had 107 range temps for a couple days. Glad our A.C was able to handle it!! IT's best to take it easy with those temps. Glad you got your errands done!!

    I have not solved my lack of sleep issues, the painkillers aren't enough and that is what keeps waking me up. I am not allowed any sleep meds for fear of reaction with what I am on..
    I was grateful for our warmest day yet, 64. Can't imagine that heat you are getting. Anywhere you can take Phred for a swim? Our Daisy sure loved the water today. She is finding this weather too hot lol.
    Hope you get some relief soon!
