It's hard to believe that we have just finished up week five of summer. It has REALLY heated up in this area and that is really impacting what we do each day. So even though I had specific ideas on my July plan, we totally did other stuff :-)
Monday: The heat started to climb on Monday so we spent a lot of time inside in front of fans. Josh and Nate hauled their car mats from their warm rooms to the dining room where they could play cars for hours under the ceiling fan.
Wednesday: Happy 4th of July!!! Just to give you an idea of the heat level - the Heat Index, at 9:00 AM was at 91 and at 8:30 PM it was 98. It hit 105 during the day. We don't have AC in the house (well, a window unit in our bedroom) so we made the very easy decision to head to Lake Michigan for the day. We went to our favorite "Secret" beach.
Now, here's my take on having central air. It is awesome :-) I love being able to give the boys baths without dying from heat exhaustion, getting up in the morning and taking a warm shower, putting on make-up and doing my hair . . .period. LOL (I don't do those three things in this heat - I take an ice cold shower, no make-up and pull my hair up while it is still wet!); I also love being able to sit and not sweat. If I had central air though, I would be white instead of having the nice tan I have . .. I'd settle for being white!!!
I'm kind of behind on planning this coming week - honestly I haven't even looked at my planning calendar yet and it is Sunday night as I write this post. Oops. I feel a little like Monday will be my day to recover from last week - the heat, a holiday and an unplanned trip!
