Sweltering, meltering heat.

It is 85 degree’s Farenheit or 30 degree’s Celsius in my house right now. Even with fan’s we were so hot  last night we fell asleep naked with no blankets on. At 1am we both awoke to realize it was pitch black and silent, then entire neighbourhood had lost power. They just turned it back on now at 7am. This means both of us got 2 hours sleep last night before death by heat kicked in. Dave ended up with a blanket on the floor, on the hardwood, in the hall, cause it was a tiny bit cooler. I stayed in bed but barely slept cause I was so hot and soaked with sweat. I called in sick to work today cause I have a migrane and am a hot and bothered exausted pregnant lady with a ton of unused sick days. Dave has no sick days and had to go to work anyways, worse part is he has to work late tonight, like a 12 hour day, 7-7. Poor guy, he was a mess this morning. I am a mess this morning but I can nap.

I opened the door this morning and called my cat, she was sleeping on the deck with a half eaten mouse. Hey, at least she can hunt, haha. I could snap her furry little neck.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Oh my, I totally would have had a cold shower or slept in a tub of cool water! We have no a/c here and when it’s super hot, I’d take a spray bottle of cold water to bed, mist my naked body and let the fan blow over me – it felt so good and helped cool me down enough to sleep. That and cold, wet washcloths strategically placed on my body πŸ˜‰

  2. Poor guys!It must be rough! Get some rest today.
    That cat got out again?OMG !!!What a little bugger. You got your hands full girl with her.
