The heat is on

Todays temperature is supposed to be 100 degrees. Factor in the humidity and it should feel like at least 105. Does my air conditioner work in my car? NO! Since we worked on it last time I can turn it on high and feel air slightly cooler than the outside temperature, but not cold by any stretch of the imagination. SH's air isn't working in his car either. Both kids air works fine... there is something wrong with this picture. We keep putting off getting them professionally worked on because SH's car is getting old and I want to sell mine and I don't care to take less and let them get it fixed if they want it fixed. SH does not believe in getting a new car as long as the old one will get you where you want to go. My parents trade cars every few years, but SH (and his parents before him) drive them until they will not go anymore. His explorer has about 170,000 miles on it and is still going strong. His last small car lasted for 12 years. It a matter of pride for them to get every last mile out of a vehicle. I don't mind driving them for a long time but when I can't rely on it to not break down I want something else.
I am working today and then trying to take the next two days off to spend with SH. I have a few day trips planned, but it is so hot out that fishing or anything he would enjoy is going to be hard to do. Yesterday evening my niece and I floated around the pool for a couple of hours and that was about the extent of our outside time.
I'm headed to work, I hope you all stay in and stay cool today.

Did we marry the same man? My hubby believes in driving cars into the ground. I'm all about getting my money's worth out of them, but I have my limits. I hope you and SH have a great few days off together!

Okay, I'm going to hypnotize all the old ladies. Watch the swinging, round, thingie. "You will not call SH. You will leave him alone. He will spend time with his wife..."

There, that should do the trick! Now you go off and have some fun!
