Sweet Mercy!!!

It is HOT! I am about ready for the fall... It's been well discussed around our house that I am NOT a summer person. Sure, I like the hot weather for about a week, maybe two, but that's it, tops! I love fall, when the sky turns bright blue, and there's a chill in the air and a crispness in the breeze. I love winter, with it's snow and gray skies. Heck, I'll even say I like spring because the flowers, but it's right up there w/ Summer, why?? Because it means summer is coming right around the corner. A simple solution to this would be to live somewhere milder... but anywhere in the South is ablaze with this heat right now, the only place is the tiny po-dunk college town where Forrest grew up and where I went to college. There, the weather is perfect year round and of course, you have the mountains.

But anyways, why do I write about this? Because... our A/C is out AGAIN. I woke up at 9:30 from a quick cat-nap (Shepherd was napping after his pre-dawn awakening) and it was starting to get warm in the house. I ran out, checked the thermostat, and it's reading almost 80 already. Then, I looked outside to see if the fan for the unit is running (a key indication if our AC is working), and it's not. So...

Like hell, I'm staying here in a hot apartment all day w/ a cranky baby... so it's off to call the apartment folks, then to Panera where I can entertain Shepherd and play around on the free internet w/ my laptop... and then who knows what. I'll figure something out... but Pray... folks, Pray hard.... I cannot survive this heat without electricity

oooh, no A/C. Yuck. I can sympathize, sort of. We haven't had A/C troubles, but our furnace went out twice this past winter--of course on the coldest days...

Stay cool!
