My Suck-Ass Weekend

It was 100 degrees + this weekend at my house. No breeze, lots of humidity (air stagnation), no air conditioning except the little one in my bedroom, and no shade or trees over my house. I wore a white T-Shirt with no underwear and no bra ALL WEEKEND. I did not change. I stayed in my bedroom 90% of the time bored out of my mind. I did not eat much cuz when I ventured out to the kitchen, I was drenched in sweat within 10 seconds.

I don't do well in the heat anyway, but this was ridiculous. I did not go outside AT ALL for fear that my skin would sizzle off. Now, you have to understand - I live near Seattle, you know, the rainy place? No one here is used to this kind of insane weather. You can't breathe when it gets over 85 degrees. I can get my mind around summer weather - swimming, picnics, etc. - but when it goes into the 100's - its like, curl up in the fetal position in your tiny little bedroom with no lights on and a little air conditioner that is working overtime, and rub popsicles all over your body.

This heat wave has no end in sight. It was nice to come to work today in the air conditioned office. I may be working many hours this week.

Amen! This weekend was so miserably hot. And I went to about 25 stores trying to buy an AC unit. No such luck. They were all sold out. I go through this every year. One of these years I'll buy one BEFORE the hot as hell weather hits.

"....and rub popsicles all over your body."...HAAA!!!!!I can sooooo relate! I live in Texas but I don't think you ever get use to it. All of my plants are dieing purely from the heat, and the pool is constantly needing water.

Hey, I know how you feel. We are also having a heat wave. It sucks. The only way to get to sleep at night is to leave all the windows open. Then we get woken up at 6 am by cars zooming past and birds singing. those birds are so damn noisy!
