Suicidal Snowflakes

Just because I have a short attention span doesn\’t mean I…

Divine Heat Stroke.

It was in the 80's when we went to bed Monday night.  We tried to turn on the air, but it didn't seem like the place was cooling down even though the air was blowing. When we got up yesterday morning, I checked out the AC unit–stupid thing wasn't even kicking on. Oh happy day.  Went to my voice lesson then to oakland, where I had to, of course, park at the ass end of oakland and walk to the library which was, thankfully, air conditioned, however the stupid photocopier (my reason for going) only accepted 1's and most of my $$ was in 5's, so I didn't even get copied everything I needed to copy…then I had to trek back to my car, which somehow ended up being uphill both ways. 

I came home after that, and my failed attempt to drop stuff off at st. vincent depaul (their big blue bin was gone, and I had like six bags, and I didn't have time to drive all the way into the back and exhaust myself in the heat (mid-90's) dragging this stuff up their huge back driveway. So after determining they had no My Little Pony dolls, I went home to get James' pills so we could eat dinner together and he could become saner through pharmacology. Temperature in the living room? 90 degrees. So I take James his dinner, then decide to go to the gym.  They're air conditioned and lovely and stuff.  They won't even let anyone touch the thermostat. It stays at 65 degrees no matter what.  

Temperature at the gym?? 88 degrees.  Their air is broke too.  So I was SO tired and hot  and stuff but I worked out. I figured, hey, God doesn't want me to be some place cool.  If he did, all my efforts to go to some place cool would not be thwarted 🙂 I'll just work out, cuz i'm here, then I'll go home, take a shower and go to the mall.  I hear they have wifi in the food court now. Of course, I have ADD, so it wasn't like I got there or anything. 

Came home, took a shower, it was probably about four degrees cooler outside, so I decided to take care of some yard work that's been making my front lawn look like hell all spring… yes, I took a shower THEN did lawn work.  The shower was mostly to cool own a little.  Got that stuff done, drank two 32 oz glasses of water and ate some food, crashed till it was time to pick up James, then spent the night dying of the heat until morning. 

I covered over the blinds with a blanket on the side of the house where the sun rises, which did keep the bedroom cooler a little longer this morning. I wasn't feeling too well when I got to work.  I felt better after some gatoraid, and was doing pretty well up until I had ta go to an appt with my nutritionist.  And yes, you guessed it.  No air conditioning in the waiting room.  A waiting room full of sweaty, anxious people.  God wants me to be stinky.  That's the only explination.
