Keeping Me in Stitches

Just in time!

Since I decided to try and be tough this year about the air-conditioning (I'm not turning it on until we're consistently hitting 80s), my house was a little warm when I got up yesterday afternoon (thermostat read 81). Opened up all the windows in the house to let it cool down, but then I had to leave for work. Originally the forecast had said it was going to storm overnight, but it was changed to being storms today instead. So the windows stayed open.

Not ten minutes after I walked in the door from work this morning, the heavens opened and we got a torrential downpour. But at least I was home for it. It could have happened while I was at work. Talk about a close call!

    Yikes! Close call. On another thought, are 80s in April fairly normal? Perhaps just because I am a NewEnglander, but that just sounds crazy this early. Give me cooler weather any day.

    we ended up having to close the windows because of the rain, although the house was still hot. what was really scary is about 2 pm i could have sworn i heard shots. i made the kids close the blinds, and double checked the doors were locked.

    and i spent all day in bed, my left arm hurt, and my arthritis was making me nauseus (advil didn't help, sigh).

    at least it's cooler now!

    The weather here is delightful. It's ranged between upper 50s to the mid 70s; very little rain, and not much wind.

    I could get so used to this...

    (But I won't!) See you soon, probably,
