I don't know how the weather is in you neck of the woods, but it has been scorching hot here the past couple of days. In the 100's. Of course now would be the perfect time for our AC to go on the fritz. Not only is it not blowing cold air, it is also blowing warm air. Keeping our house a nice steady 88 degrees. So we just turned the whole thing off.
Awesome. Thanks for that.
So in short we have a series of about 4000 fans set in strategic spots around the house.
Luckily we have the pool out back. That turned into the best investment ever.Although with it being so hot over several days, even the water is at 90 degrees. I have to stick the hose in to try to cool it off. Something I really didn't think I would do.
But with all this playing in the water it sure gets everyone good and pooped at the end of the day. Sunshine laid herself down here on the deck and took a little siesta with Libby. I love lazy days like this. It's my get out of work card. It's just too darn hot to do anything other than laze about. My house looks like a bomb went off. There is also a permanent wet trail in the carpet from the back door (where the pool is) to the downstairs potty. It never really seems to dry out.
Luckily that carpet is on it's way out, so I don't have to worry about keeping it decent. Like I ever really did? That carpet has been peed on, barfed on and pooped on just about every inch, by just about every living being in the house. It is time for it to go. Look out Pergo...here we come!
