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

Elderly Abuse

I heard a loud thud the other morning around 3:30 a.m. I checked my monitor but he'd once again turned it to the wall so I was unable to see if he was still in bed. I went downstairs right behind my sweet husband and dad was on the living room floor moaning and holding his head. He'd fallen. Hard.

The first picture is the day of the fall. The second is the day after. The black eye keeps blossoming. He has a gash on his head, hidden by his silver hair and he skinned his shoulder/arm. He's a mess.

Was he using his walker? Nope. 85 year old toddlers cannot be told what to do. Or rather, they can be told what to do, they simply won't comply. Ever. In fact they get down right angry and throw fits. It's not pretty.

His physical therapist came to the house the next day and strongly told him to use his walker EACH TIME HE STOOD UP. Has he? Nope. Nyet. He was very angry with me yesterday because I kept asking him to use his walker. Also, I asked him i…



Back on the horse
Monkey on his back
I see no light
Not even a crack
Back to delusions
Back to the lies
I see through his words
He can't hear my cries

Back into his soul
Back into his veins
The poison he pours
Dark liquid his chains

Backed into a corner
Heartbroken and torn
Back into the needle
The eye of the storm

Back to the wall
Soul bruised torn and broken
Back to my pain
His eyes half open

Back into the horror
Will he ever come back
Back into the nightmare
A needle in a sack

Back into his childhood
I loved him with fury
Looking back on his life
His choices my jury

How did this happen
Back to evil and sin
How can he do this
Lines on his skin

Back to my weeping
Back to my sorrow
My son, my love,
Has no more tomorrows
