High For Today Is 111

It's actually *supposed* to be 2-4 degrees cooler today. Yes, 111 is *cooler*. This past week and actually the week before has been SO HOT! We've been hitting highs around 113-115(with heat index being even hotter). It's ridiculous.

What does this have to do with a weekend wrap-up? Everything...

I don't know about y'all, but when I'm hot-I'm exhausted. I don't like to freeze, but I would rather need a blanket wrapped around me than to be burning up and sweaty. The heat this week has left me hot, irritated, drained, unfocused, lazy, and unproductive. Plus, I've got a migraine from hell that I can't even get to ease up some. It's so frustrating.

I can handle migraines, but this one is adding to the unproductiveness. (Yeah, that's not a word, but ah well). So between the migraine and the heat, I've done almost nothing all week. I even had to skip my Thursday TAG! post. (Of course, that worked because I'm doing something a little different with the one I had planned anyway.)

So that's pretty much been my week, hot and exhausting. My kids start back to school on Monday and I've got to switch from Summer schedule to school schedule. There are good things and bad things about school starting back up. Good-with my kids at school from 745-245, I'll be able to get more cleaning and writerly things done. Bad-I've had a lot of fun with my girls at home these past 6weeks(I think it's been). I'll miss them not being with me all day.

Anyway, that's all really. Hopefully this heat will ease up, my migraine too, and then I can get caught up.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.

Happy Saturday. :)

Sorry you've been so miserable. My head would pound in heat like that. We've been hot, just not that hot.

Lord have mercy, I nearly swooned reading your local temps! GAH!!!!! I hate the heat too, A LOT, and have been feeling equally unproductive and BLAH. I hope things cool down for y'all soon! And good luck to your girls in the coming school year!

When Rob asked how long my attitude was going to last, I told him, til the first cold snap in October.
Cool down, feel better.

That makes me feel better about the weather here, which is horrible and muggy but not even close to 111.

I would love to have my kids home for an extra 3 or 4 weeks. They have about 2 weeks left.

I've actually been productive this week, but I know what you mean about the heat. I've been miserable!

I will not repeat some of the text msgs I get regularly from friends in your area when I brag about the highs here being 84*F. Friends at the place I used to work there curse me regularly. October is coming quick...and should help. Meantime, have you made Car Heat Cookies? It does work and leaves your car smelling awesome for a week...And it is OKAY to live in an ice bath.
