It Has Begun

Summer, that is. In a matter of about three days the temperatures have gone from quite pleasant to absolutely painful. It's like hell on a particularly warm day.

At 8:30 this morning it was 82. By 10, it was already 92. Ack. I'm not made for this. I hate the sticky-icky film that covers my entire body the minute I step outside. It also doesn't really make me want to step foot in the hot room to do any kind of yoga.

Matt and I had a discussion yesterday about how he'd rather live with the heat than the cold. I see his point. But he's never lived anywhere that requires more than a jacket in winter, so he's not really qualified to make that call. I hate winter, but I'd give at least half of my shoe collection for a light frost right now. Just to cool everything off and remove the stickiness.

The next few months will be hard. I'll feel like a roast by the time the temperatures start to cool off in October. Until then, I'll keep the blinds drawn and the air on and hope the power doesn't go out.

I hate the summer. Hate it. It was 102 here today. I don't even want to know what July and August will bring this year. Gotta love Dallas.

And I hear it's rather humid down your way... At least I have a very dry heat. Not that once you get into the 110s it matters much what the humidity is like... It's too hot all the way around.
