Are we being punished?

Seriously? What did the Midwest and the South do to tick off God? We are melting. We are molting. We are just down right gross and sweaty! Yesterday was the hottest day in 55 years and the second hottest day on record in this area since weather records have been kept - it was - are you ready for this - 106 degrees!! IN THE SHADE!! Miserable. Down right miserable. It was the 6th straight day of temps 100+ and the 13th straight day of temps 95+. BUT GOOD NEWS - we get a break this weekend! Its only suppose to be 96!! WOO HOO! Then back up to 98-100 for all of next week - AGAIN!?!?! I honestly cannot remember or recall such a HOT time. I know its typical for us to have a few 3-4 day HOT spells in August - but we're on day 13 now - only to continue, it looks, for another whole week!

Because the air has been so hot and dry, sinus infections and running rampart around here. I took Sarah in yesterday for a Sinus infection...and three prespriptions later, we left. Poor thing. She is kinda grumpy, too...I think on top of the funk, she's cutting a molar or an eye tooth, not sure which, but I know from experience with Beth that BOTH hurt. Beth also has the funk, but it doesn't appear to have progressed to "infection" yet - so far the Claritan is working okay. I think Beth is a little dehydrated though- we've been fighting leg cramps at night, so I've had her eating bananas and drinking Gatorade A LOT!

Everyone is just down right miserable. Wasn't this a nice uplifting blog entry? Ugh.....
