Heat Stroke

I think I'm having it. It's over 90 degrees INSIDE MY HOUSE!! This isn't something that makes me feel all warm and cozy.. Well, warm sure. Cozy, not so much.

I've been promised that our air conditioning will be done and working by the time I get home from hell one the hottest places on the planet (LV) I made mention of the fact that if the air conditioning is not hooked up and pumping out nice, frozen air by the time I'm supposed to start my return trip, I won't start my return trip. In fact, I won't come home at all. I'll stay right there, lodeged in that Las Vegas pool and I don't care how pruney I get, I won't come out.

How's that for a temper tantrum.

Oh, and my oil gauge did something wonky today. Hubby is outside looking into it right now.

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy, Joy.


  1. I'm sweating for you...I cannot fathom what the world did before A/C. Or swimming pools. Hope they get it fixed for you so that you don't get too pruney...

  2. The good Lord knew not to send me to earth before the advent of air conditioning, swimming pools and ice cubes to put down my bra.

    I'd never have made it as a pioneer crossing the plains.

    "ice cubes to put down my bra"
    There goes another 7% of the polar ice cap then.

  4. Hey, that was me. Bloody blogger pretends not to know who I am. As if!

  5. Pammy please, I don't really do 'pruney'. Think of the future darling one.

  6. I'm just trying to catch up to you, Tom dearest. :grin:

    Well, the kids are in the car and we're waiting for the Teenage Irritant to get back from the gym. Yes, it's only a bit after four in the morning. She went to buy some protein food.

    I'll try and blog from the road. Hugs and kisses to all.

  7. I think that's a temperature tantrum.

    Hey, even with my AC running all day, my house never gets cooler than 80 degrees.

  8. LOL @ "ice cubes to put down my bra" - boy, that would get rid of any "not so fresh" feeling.

    We're hot down here in Portland too. Yesterday we played in the fountain downtown and the lovely cool feeling lasted until bedtime. Today's much better.

  9. I've been to that fountain! I love it.

    We made it to Pocatello. Hot, but not as hot as we were yesterday in Seattle! They don't have a wifi hookup here so I can't do my pictures till another time later on the road.

    Hubby said they are working on the ac in our house tomorrow. Mmm. Hmm. I've heard that before! :grin:

  10. It was 31 celcius here yesterday. Not sure what that ends up being in farenheit but suffice it to say, it is HOT! No A/C here. I really feel like I'm missing out on the good stuff...

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

I'll Love You Forever, I'll Like You For Always...

I rely on the kindness of strangers...

Or not so much strangers as readers of my miserable blog.

I received a beautiful card in the mail from my long-tine reader (perhaps my ONLY reader) that lifted my heart. Thank you, G. Parkes. It was kind of you to think of me. Seriously---you are so sweet. Thank you.

Perhaps we can meet in person one day. I'll be in Utah after Conference. We'll see how it goes.

I've been caring for my autistic grandson since July. It seems longer sometimes---and that's not a complaint. I adore this little man. He holds my heart. He fills my arms and my heart in the way that my own small babies used to do. When mine reached the age where they didn't want to be in my arms any longer, I felt their absence. Their absence from my arms was heavier than actually having them in my arms. It was an ache that is difficult to describe, a phantom pain where something once was but now is no longer.

I'm Sick. And the election isn't helping.

I spoke too soon about feeling better. My grandson was delightful enough to share his virus with me, so I've spent the past five days losing everything from both ends. It hasn't been pretty.

As a weight loss program though...

At least one end of me has stopped spewing. Now I wait for the other end to stop pretending to be filled with hot lava and erupting without much notice. Sorry, this is what is called over-sharing. Apparently I'm very good at it. You're welcome.

Last night I walked around the block with hubby and our adorable puppy. It was the first time I've been out of the house in five days. It was lovely, even though I was very shaky. Today I actually tried to accomplish something. I sat at my jewelry table, moved my seaglass around. Picked up pieces and played them through my hands. Such beautfy that came from something considered useless garbage and tossed away. I love my sea glass. It gives me the happies.

I also had a severe case of J…
