I realize this goes without saying . . . but it's hot!
I know I live in Arizona and it's July. This time of year, though, just drains me. Getting in and out of the air conditioned van to go in and out of the air conditioned grocery store is draining. If I have multiple errands to run, I come home and lay in my bed with ice packs to cool me off.
I love Arizona. We have awesome weather 9-10 months out of the year. But July & August are scorching.
I'm so drained that I don't even take pictures apparently. My mom was asking why there were no recent candids of the boys - and a quick search of the 30G of digital pictures on my hard drive showed me that I have NO pictures of them this July, last July or July 2004.
We're off on Sunday to spend the day/night at a local resort that has a waterpark. It'll be a fun family adventure with a POOL! And I won't have to wash dishes! Or make beds! I can't wait! It'll make me that more anxious for our pool to be installed - but I'm trying not to think too much about that. The permit is slowly making it's way through bureacracy (we're 4 weeks into the 12 week estimate), and then it's 30-45 days to get the pool completed. I keep reminding myself that the pool will always be there after it's installed and I'll never worry about melting in my own backyard again! Woo Hoo!
