Sorry its been so long since I last posted. We have been pretty busy and it has just been darn hot. I mean, I didn't ever really consider 80s hot until I lived in a house with a great southern exposure (wonderful for winter, a sin in the summer) and even with all of the windows open and fans on, the house is still over 80. It sucks, let me tell you.
We play smartly, lots of swimming in mama's bathtub, no real cooking (microwave and counter top oven only!) and tons of water. If we go outside, it is to run or walk through the sprinkler. Even so, its still too hot to be comfortable to do much though we have given it out best shot.
Miss C is a great trooper. She tells me when its too hot to eat and will sit and eat a Popsicle if she just wants to cool off. She loves swimming in my bath tub (it is a bit larger than hers) and keeps me up with squirts from her water bottle. She even learned that if I give her a wet wash cloth before bed, it helps to lay it on her tummy because it makes her cooler (kind of a swamp cooler).
I need to buy ice, that's for sure. I also need to talk DH into looking into a/cs. He has managed to miss the hottest part of the year here two years in a row while he is spending his time in another hot area, we just have to figure this out here.
I know its only a few weeks (maybe 6 or 8) of the year that it gets this way but those times are miserable. Any thoughts on how to get a/c without breaking the bank or at least how to help cool the house? Ugh!
