How's the weather where you are?
We're sweltering here. Right now, at 4:45 PM the temperature outside if 98 degrees. The humidity I don't know but it feels like 100%. I can only stay outside a few minutes before my body starts to overheat. Then I dash back inside for relief. I can't take this kind of weather folks.
I believe it when warnings go out during hot weather like this about it being dangerous for seniors. It is folks! I'm here to tell you. Hard to believe when I was young, I sailed through summertime without air conditioners and even fans. Not now, I literally fear for my life if I stay out too long. I think I can take Palm Springs heat, which is low humidity but not this heavy, oppressive humidity. A familiar refrain eh? "The heat not so bad but I can't take the humidity."
By the way, got some good news this morning. Home Depot gave me a credit ($248) on my rug pad that I didn't need. I love Home Depot (even though one of its founders funds Trump's campaign). Good customer service Home Depot.
An update on my brother who I mentioned was seriously ill. I haven't heard anything for several weeks now which isn't good. My Mother often said "When it's quiet that not good." John isn't one to complain about misfortune, unlike me. I tend to shout my misfortune from the rooftops. I texted him asking him how he was doing. I'll let you know if I hear anything.
Hopefully I'm back to my regular schedule (two nights a week) at the hotel. It seems for months now I've been working three nights or more a week at the hotel to fill in for my co-workers for various emergencies, sicknesses, resignations, and vacations. Last Monday on my workday I woke up and was dizzy, very dizzy. I had to stay in bed all morning until I got a semblance of my balance back. I think I have an inner ear infection. I had this problem a few months back. It's scary when I have that condition because I can't get my balance. It's like I'm drunk. I am totally immobilized. I don't know what we would do here if this was a permanent condition with me. I couldn't drive and Bill doesn't drive. I don't want to even think about it.
I only have one more thing to do this summer, getting my car inspected and registered then I'm looking forward to coasting out the rest of the summer. That is until the next unexpected emergency crops up.
