It is hot here. I know I always say I won’t complain about the hot when it’s cold and vice versa but you know I am lying. The biggest problem is, well, the sun. The thermostat in my house is in the dining room, on the far west side of the house, in a dark and curtained room. My bedroom is on the east side, and sure I have curtains but it doesn’t help. For the first few hours of the morning it is chill and lovely on one side of the house and sweltering on the bedroom side. Yes, I know the solution to this is to get up at 6 am and not be in the hot part of the house, but that doesn’t work so well for me when I don’t get off work until 1 am. So the next best solution I have is to get a programmable thermostat and jack the AC up just for the early hours of the morning. It might be worth it not to have to wake up groggy, with my hands all swollen, and just feeling yucky.
Also mosquito season is begun. Which means I’m all bitten. Ugh. It seems like I’m getting bitten the same amount but the bites aren’t as hideous this year. So far. And they go away in 36 or 48 hours. Which is great. Except when one gets bit every single day it doesn’t matter much how long the bites last.
Whine whine whine whine whine.
On the other hand, the sun is out and man do I love the sun, even when it burnses me.
I have a ton of work to do. Hard thinking work. I think I will try and get organized first.
I will leave you with my current favorite song: Bruce Springsteen – Girls in their Summer Clothes (click to download)
