is it winter yet? + week reflection

I’m ready for winter — or, at the very least, fall. These 90-plus days are taking their toll on me and our family. Although I’m definitely the most vocal and crabby about my weather discontent. I lost count at the number of times my husband and I looked at each other last weekend and said, “basement?” A question that was followed by just lying in bed and reading because, even with AC upstairs, it was just too hot.

I did just hear my local weatherman on CPR promise “cooler days” in the upcoming week. Fingers crossed.

I guess on the positive side I can say I’m preparing myself for what will truly be unbearable heat in Phoenix, where I’ll be spending a week for work to close out July and welcome August. Ugh. Can’t wait. (Relatedly, I promise my normal chipper and non-cynical self will make an appearance once September hits. For now, you’re stuck with Crabby McCrabberson. Sorry.)
