Yesterday it was 104 degrees by 1 pm here. Even though we have central a/c it simply cannot keep up with this kind of heat. As a result our bedroom is seriously hot at night. (We really need to add another a/c vent to that room. But that requires a bigger blower motor. Oh yea, and some kind of fan to the attic. And $$$$$.)
Earlier this week we bought a new mattress at Costco because I have been having serious pain in my hips and pelvis* (and neck and shoulders, and, and, and ha).
Our old mattress was still in our room, waiting to move to the basement if we decided to keep the new mattress. (Which we will be. After resorting to the old one last night I am a MESS again this morning. A gaggy, aching mess.)
I decided at 10 pm last night we should just camp in the living room. It was several degrees cooler in there.
So we did.
And since it will be another blazing hot inferno of a day here (AGAIN, when will it stop? hottest summer I can remember), I expect I will find Jack, clad only in pjs, camped out there all day long.
Which is just fine with my aching, gagging, sweating self.
Besides, how can you not love "the flowers bed" (what Jack always called our bed as a toddler) in the living room?
*Jack and I were walking every morning which was really helping that pain. Even early in the morning it is just too darn hot right now. Boo.
