Too #*$&*#&$ hot!

It's still 86 degrees with a heat index of 95 degrees. Did you make note of the time? Almost 10 pm. Did I tell you I hate summer? Please snow... please snow... please snow...... and I am getting on my knees and thanking God for whoever invented central air. If I could get away with it, I'd set it at 65 degrees! But, I'll have to settle for 76, and even that's generous considering how hot it is. This kind of weather makes me want to move as far north as possible. I just hate it!

Friend in Beirut

I have an email friend of several years who is Lebanese and has lived in Beirut for many years now. I had not heard anything from her and thankfully she was able to email me today. Things are just so horrible over there, and it makes me so upset, I just can't stand the thought of it, especially reading about it from someone right in it, first hand. She said they don't even feel sad anymore because it is just too much. :( Thankfully they were able to go up into the mountains so they aren't in the city anymore, she said the bombs from the airstrikes go so far underground that you can't hide from them anywhere.

It is now 97 degrees here at my house, heat index of 107. I really, really am starting to intensely dislike summer. It is still supposed to be in the 90's at 8 pm so too hot to even take Will out to play. This is the time of year I start wishing for snow!! Don't be mad, if you lived inside my body, you would too!

No time for computer!

I see that it's been about a month since I updated this!! Honestly, I've been SO tired from this pregnancy and chasing around a 20 month old that I just can't hardly move some days. Since I'm 12 weeks now I was really hoping that I wouldn't feel so bad still, but it's not really going away. Yesterday I was so tired that I knew I would fall asleep, it was just a matter of where it would happen. I could not stop it!

I had my 12 week check up yesterday and things are all going fine, all my blood was OK too. I am not immune to toxoplasmosis like I thought for sure I would be, but that's ok... no cat box for me I guess! I have not gained a pound either which is fine by me, I wouldn't think I would need the extra weight at all. If you want to see my belly pic for 12 weeks, here is the link. I just feel sick and fat and now I've got a cold which is not helping!

We spent some time in the UP (Houghton/Hancock) this month and it was really nice. Although there were a few days that were way too hot for me, I just stay inside in the A/C because the heat really makes me sick. It was wonderful to be home though, I got to see some friends and my parents and got out to Lake Superior a couple of times. I didn't want to come back here at all!! I am really homesick. I want to go back over Labor Day because that will probably be my last trip up until next year now.

Yesterday my son was so funny. He has a Sesame St. coloring book, and he went through the whole thing, drawing lines through everyone's noses! Then he would get a different color crayon and do it again! He was all serious about it too, and did NOT want me coloring with him! (Usually we do it together and then after about 30 seconds he turns the page on me!)

My friend Laura got a blog started and that's really the main reason I updated this one! (You inspired me!! ) I put it in my links, please go have a look!
