Hotter than the hubs of hell.

Seattle has been in the middle of a heat wave. Yesterday our little town was the 2nd hottest in our county at 105 degrees. The low last night was 73. Just to give you some perspective, that is a typical 'high' for Seattle. People are generally dressing inappropriately and complaining around here after about 85 degrees. So you can imagine that an additional 20 degrees puts a little strain on our unacclimated bodies. Especially for poor folks like J, who works outdoors all day. I've never been more grateful for my cushy desk job.

A little fun fact - only 15% of homes in Washington state have air conditioners. Our home is not one of them. Thankfully we have a little portable AC in our bedroom, so sleeping hasn't been SO bad. Unfortunately the rest of our house is an oven. 92 degrees at 10:00pm last night. Yikes!

It may not seem like much to those of you that are used to the triple digits. Thankfully it will "cool down" by the weekend. YAY 89-92! lol

The best silver lining? I think my spotting was scared of the heat. 3 days free of spotting - WOOHOO! I'm going to start the OPK's immediately after AF next month, just in case I have been ovulating really early in my cycle.


  1. Interesting TidBit: Unusual Heat WAves tend to cause sexual desire to increase. Basically it's like both sexes go into "heat". Take advantage, get to gettin, you never know. *wink*

  2. LOL - were you peeking in our windows again!??!
