I'm melting.....

Oh lordy, noon and its 90 degrees already... expected to reach 102 degrees. I have to go outside and then come back in to find out for sure that its cooler inside than outside. But it will cool down to 90 degrees tomorrow. Be still my heart.

It was difficult to get the place cooled off during the night. The news said it was 73 degrees at 3am... back up to 78 by 9am.

Whine ... but just a little. Its not like I live in Southern California or Arizona. I'm just very very thankful I don't have a job where I have to work outside... like putting down asphalt or something.

104 here right now at 6:00 pm...

We red necked our place today, you know the sky light and sliding glass doors in the master bedroom? well, we put cardboard up so its dark in there now, Ohhh so nice, it starts getting light at 4:30 in the summer, and now with the heat it was like an oven, so now its dark and cool...

Hope you didnt melt into the floor boards today...

There was no air movement, close to 100, and all we could do today was stay inside with air conditioning and start doing spring cleaning and getting ready for the going away party this weekend. I think instead of spring cleaning it should be humid cleaning because that's the best time to do it, when you can't go outside.

It looks pretty good in here right now, all clean, smells good and furniture moved around, vacuumed under and then new arrangements.

Laura and I made good movement towards a nice clean house for the party next weekend.

I hope you all find relief. I think you could be worse off than us..especially at 106.

Why is crack so attractive...I don't know what it smells like so don't know if any body in this neighborhood cooks it or not.

Sandy asked 'why is crack so attractive'... it gives a person a sense of well being and complete confidence. Its a speed. If you've ever taken diet pills (rx kind) and you can remember the first few times... its an enhanced form of that feeling. Why does anyone do drugs... because they want to alter their reality, cover life's ugliness for a little bit. Then it takes more and more to get the same euphoric feeling.

Crack smells like chemicals burning. The first time I smelled it I spent an hour looking around my apt. trying to find out what/where the plastic wiring was burning. I can't think of any smell that is compariable. After smoking some there seems to be a lot of spitting, probably trying to get the taste out. The spit is irridiscent (spelling still sucks). Once it dries, there is a dark permanent stain on the cement/sidewalk. Makes ya wonder, don't it.

"We red necked our place today..." hahaha
I know it would be nice to have the 'basement' back for ease of sleeping during the day, but then papa wouldn't have Kylie to play with. Seems to always be a trade off.

When I'm whining about the heat here, I know you'll be a lot hotter where you are...
