We, like the rest of the country, have been suffering a heat wave for the last several weeks. Our little window "cooler" helps, but just barely. We've taken to actually hosing off the roof in the evenings to help cool the house down before the kids go to bed. (Yes, it does actually help.)
Bubblehead told me last week that they were asking people in Wyoming, Montana and Colorado to not use their air conditioners so that California could cool off. Sorry California - I'm sure you're near-death miserable, but I have two kids that will not sleep until 10:30 if I can't cool this house off to 80, and my fragile mental stability is teetering on the brink as it is.
Today, however, we awoke to grey skies and a lovely breeze, which normally I would complain about. But today I hold my tongue, and open the doors to invite that breeze in. Welcome Wind! I know I've cursed you in the past, but let's let bygones be bygones, shall we? I'm actually chilly! I have goosebumps! Yippie!!
I hope that where ever you are, you are getting some relief as well.
On a completely separate note, I will be featuring a virtual book tour here at Mommy Matters on Thursday. Be sure to stop by for my exclusive interview with the author!
