Heat Wave

Today?  It was only 89 and I refused to turn on the AC.  I figure that way, when it gets even hotter this week, life will seem great by comparison.  Although, when you see "100" on the weather report (and that's not even "real feel"), there isn't much you can do to make things seem okay.  Aside from stocking up on popsicles, of course...

Tell me, exactly how hot does it have to get before one risks spontaneously combusting?

Luckily, I've already signed Susie up for vacation bible school this week.  Although I wasn't able to follow through on the plans I made last year, which involved signing the girls up for every VBS within a 5-mile radius of our house, it wasn't for lack of trying.  Turns out that too many churches have VBS the exact same week of the summer - I guess they are on to me and my wily schemes.  Still, for a mere 10 dollars, I have 15 glorious hours of free time the next 5 mornings.  I think I'll spend it catching up on housework.

Ha, ha, ha - oh, I slay me.

  1. I'm ordering nice, mild weather when I head your way in a few weeks....but popsicles are awesome. VBS is great too, when you don't have to actually BE there.

  2. Housework, pah! Blogging and knitting, that's my recommendation. The house will just get messy again.

  3. My stepdaughter uses your plan with VBS too. In her city, they haven't caught on yet. Those kids go to VBS in the morning and the evening...

  4. Well, we've been over 100 - and again, that's without factoring in the heat index - every day for at least two weeks now, and I haven't combusted yet. I know what it's doing... it's waiting until the first week of August when I have to send the kids back to school, and THEN it will cool off. Things torture me, too. Enjoy your free time!

  5. I don't have that much will power, to not turn on the a/c.

    Yay! Someone else who turns off the AC occasionally! My kids are in open rebellion, but I got three glorious days of fresh air this past week. I hate living in hermetically sealed boxes, but I wilt totally in high heat and humidity. Not sure how I survived a childhood in Virginia with not AC!

  7. I've seriously considered signing my kids up for every VBS in town. And I'm Jewish. Love it.
