Hot? Really? Hadn't Noticed...

I would like to post something, but all my mind keeps thinking is "It's hot.  HOT.  It's hot here."  Over and over, like a broken record.

Have I mentioned it is hot?

The prediction for Saturday is 104 degrees, people.  So I'm heading on down to Charlottesville, VA, where it will be a much cooler 103.  Yeah, I know.  I'm tempted to head the car north instead, but Mrs. G of Derfwad Manor will be at JenontheEdge's house; and I just cannot miss the party.

Also, this is payback for Larry's being away on my birthday.  He's supposed to be taking tomorrow off from work, so I can go.  But he's already trying to renege on the deal:

Larry: I'm taking the boys to the airport at 5; so I figured I would just swing by work.  I'll be home by 8.

Me: No.

Larry: I'll be home in plenty of time for you to leave!

Me: It's my BIRTHDAY.

Larry: (Confused look)

Me: Remember?  I don't want to be in charge of the morning stuff.  And you have to drive the band camp carpool.  It's my day off.

Larry: Oh. (Still confused)

Me: It's my BIRTHDAY.

It's unbelievable what I have to go through for some me-time around here.

  1. I don't think I'm going to make it to the party, though I really want to go and am feeling quite torn about it. I don't know Mrs. G, so I'm afraid I'd feel like an imposter (the main reason I'd go would be to meet you), and our van has no AC. I already have to make one trip to the WV border to pick a kid from camp and I'm afraid I'll be kind of worthless after that. But you'll write about it, right?

    And happy birthday to you! Enjoy your me-time!

  2. Happy Birthday!
    And have fun at the party--I'm wicked jealous. I had no idea YOU were going to be there too.

  3. Happy Birthday, kick Larry's ass if he tries to wiggle out of any more of your birthday plans, and give my love to Jen!

  4. Don't let him off the hook! I'm so glad you are going to the meet-up, I *know* it is going to be a boatload of fun. It makes me wish I was back there again! Except for the heat...

    It's supposed to be 101 here on Sunday, and we don't have A/C. But wait! There is A/C in the minivan. I think I might need to take a long drive...

  5. Oh boy, I can't wait to read the blogs about this party!

  6. You go girl!!!! I hope you have a fab time - I am so jealous. Jennifer Jo, just go! I hate hate hate that I had to miss both the GA and the NC one...grrr...!!!!

  7. I would totally put up with 103 degree temps to hang out with you, Mrs. G and Jen. Totally.

  8. So glad you are heading over to Jen's to see Mrs. G. What a great birthday present. Really, Larry should be thanking you for making it so simple for him!

  9. You need to train that man up! I just tell mine I'm leaving all the time lol cya! Helps that the youngest is 9 though, he's the only one that we don't let stay home alone.

  10. This sounds so ridiculously familiar. I hope you had a fabulous birthday!
