Don't get me wrong I LOVE SUMMER. I rather have the sun over the winter anytime. I love Flip Flops, the sun, the beach and pool days, the barbecues, a nice tall iced lemonade or a margarita ;) , summer dresses and skirts, tanned skin! I love it. But come on Mother Earth, it's been too damn hot these past couple of weeks. And I've been cranky!
Have you ever wish to stay in your shower the whole day because it feels so much better than in your house? That's how I've been feeling. During the day like its intolerable. This house gets too hot, outside gets even hotter. Even with the fan on its sticky.
By the end of the day you are sun pooped, or rather heat pooped. You are so tired you just want to sleep. But I for one haven't been able to sleep. I'll sleep for a couple hours, with the fan on, my windows wide open. But then I wake up, sweating, and often times from a nightmare which doesn't help. I try to go to back sleep, but everything bothers me, I have to throw everything off my bed, so that nothing touches me not even a pillow. I spend the next couple of hours tossing and turning, making me even hotter, and cursing the heat. I finally, can't take it, I get up turn on the TV, or watch Netflix, or grab my current read.
I love summer, but I do hope that it begins to cool down these last couple of weeks of summer.
Wherever you are, make sure you stay safe. Drink lots of water and stay hydrated. Stop by an icecream shop, or Jamba Juice, or grab Icee!!
Have you ever felt cranky in the summer? How do you deal with it??
