Too hot

As a big, fat, 24-weeks pregnant woman, it's hard for me to think of anything else this week but how awfully, uncomfortably hot it is. The weather forecast is calling for a high of 103 degrees today, the second day in a row that it'll be over 100. Same for tomorrow, too. Our AC unit hasn't shut off in the last 48 hours, I don't think, provoking much liberal guilt about what I'm doing to the environment. Not enough to make me turn it down, though. It was set at 74 and the downstairs was still 80 degrees at dinnertime yesterday. At 10:30 pm, it was decidedly hotter than 80 degrees upstairs and my legs were sweating as I was climbing into bed last night.

I'm going to take the girls to the pool here in a few minutes since it's already 87 degrees at 9:15 am, and we'll leave before it gets too unbearable. Fortunately, it's going to cool off to a relatively delightful 92 degrees by Saturday.

I'm looking forward to the "cold front". Hope you had fun at the pool. Thanks for your comment on the scones. Coming from you, I really take that as a compliment b/c I'm pretty clueless in the kitchen. I'm trying. We are determined to eat in and eat better. Keep cool!

I hate to get out of the tub and then sweat like crazy and be all nasty before I even get into bed...yuk.

Yuck. I was pregnant in the summer with A and it was pretty unbearable for July and August.

Hope you had fun at the pool!

Gosh I remember how that was with me last summer. It was the most uncomfortable feeling!

Stay indoors and keep cool is what they used to tell me! Sounds easy if you didn't have another child that gets cabin fever huh.

Anyway, I just kept on drinking really really cold water the whole time. It won't be for long dear.

We finally got out of hundred + degree highs and into highs in the upper 90s for the rest of this week....I feel your pain!
