See that? Over to the left? That was the temperature here yesterday, at 3pm. Coincidentally, the Menopause Gods have kindly scheduled my daily hot flash for 3pm each day, so I'm already steaming. It is like clockwork...at three o'clock, BAM!
Back to the weather - It's hot! And it's a humid heat - the air feels thick and damp. Two minutes outside and everyone is hoping everyone else used deodorant. One of us has to be REMINDED to put on said deodorant. I'm not namin' names here, but boys who are almost 14 forget these little niceties.
Even The Boy refuses to go outside in this heat...so the nasal passages of the neighborhood are safe for now.
I watered our deck garden plants...twice. By evening, they looked like they needed another good drink.
The Boy and I have been inside together for days now...I'm beginning to crack. I love the kid, don't get me wrong - but I need my own space, ya know? All he wants to do is watch DVDs and tell me about Mad magazine and eat everything that hasn't been labeled nutritious. He's worse than an infant with this food thing - he is grazing for food approximately every two hours.
It's even too hot for this:
The weatherman has said that we can expect this weather pattern to continue until this Friday. So I guess The Boy and I are stuck with each other for several more days.
Thank God for air conditioning. I dread the arrival of the next electric bill.
