Death Valley Days


No, that's not me - it's the girl (bombshell)in the Perrier melting ad. I've been without air conditioning or a fan since Tuesday. Deathly hot. Even the cats are seeking cool by lying on the floor - not their usual location which is in my bed. This afternoon the technical expert is coming with a new motor and thermostat. In an attempt to not look like a slob, I started vacuuming. What a stupid idea since the vacuum generates its own heat and my muscle activity is generating even more. So I'll look like the slob I am.
Can't wait till bedtime when I will say "to sleep, perchance to dream...."

Oh Sharon, what bad luck. I have air and it doesn't seem to be enough, the cat just walks along and flops any cool tile area he can find. I'm staying in my basement today, I think I may even move the TV down here so I can watch/sleep through the news.

This seems to be happening all over the world! It's terribly hot here and air conditioning standards are not what they are in North America. I do hope your situation gets righted soon, otherwise you just may end up looking like the gal in the ad!
