I'm Ready for Winter

I can't believe this heat. The thermometer on my patio only read 96, but it felt much hotter than that. I have lived in Texas all my life, but I never seem to get used to the heat. In fact, I get less tolerant of it as I get older. I barely spent 10 minutes outside and I was ready to retreat to the comfort of my AC. The first official day of Summer isn't even here yet!

We have talked for years about moving out of Texas to a cooler climate, but honestly I don't see that happening. We are now talking about buying a home and I am trying to complete my master's degree; that will keep us here for several more years.

How come summer never felt this hot when we were kids? We used to run around bare foot in the sand and spend all day outside. We never once thought about going inside to the AC.

Since mother nature is not going to give me a break, I guess I better just suck it up and learn how to deal with the heat.

p.s. - Bitemeez has been repaired and Abbie has definitely been giving him a workout.

  1. Ha Ha! Yesterday I was saying, "Where's the snow?" as I was sweating up a storm during my riding lesson. I won't tell you the temperature or you'll be depressed! A cold front came in later though and now the temps are much cooler than normal. We're only in the 60's today! I love it!
