Baby it's hot outside!

My oh my...we've had an incredibly mild summer so far and honestly, I can't complain...it's the end of August and I think we've had about 3 or 4 HOT days so far this summer, but man, it's WARM! I heard that it reached 100 or more today and yesterday and I'm hoping that it's going to cool a bit in the near future, although since we don't have television to watch the weather and I never know what website has accurate information. I tell ya though, on days (actually nights) like this I seriously envy my children. I don't know why, but I have this need to make my children as comfortable as possible...I think all parents do, but I also think my selfishness has a bit to do with it :) (the more comfortable they are, the less chance there is that they'll wake me up at night!). The children have air conditioners in their bedrooms. AHHHHH!! So I keep their rooms cool and then shut them off before I go to sleep. There are nights when I wish I could just curl up in their rooms and sleep away in a nice, chilled room. Our room has a weird window that won't allow us to install an a/c without MUCH trouble. It's not so bad at night, but we also can't really open our bedroom window because we're right on the street and it's pretty noisy and I'm an incredibly light sleeper.

So we just got back home from my parents house. The girls went up there on Saturday morning and then spent Sunday and Monday in Tahoe. Lucky girls!! Grandma and Papa brought them up and took them out in the boat. They stayed at a hotel with a swimming pool and hot tub. They were living the high-life! They had a really good time. I'm going to get my parents to blog about it for me...since they know all of the details.

I'm ending here for now, I started this post last night and I've just gotta get it out there. I'll post more photos soon too!

At least you HAVE air conditioning! I know, up here in the Seattle area, we it doesn't get quite as hot, but ugh... On those hot days, it's hard. And we have those side-opening, crank windows so no small air conditioning unit would ever work for them.

So I spent most of this summer installing Gila Platinum Heat Control window tint (Home Depot or Lowe's) on most of my sun facing windows. They truely do what the packaging says - 70% heat reduction. Great stuff! We had a couple of days hit near 100, but inside our house only got up to 79 degrees! :) Woo hoo!

Oh yuck, but 79 is definitely do-able!
We only have window units because supposedly the bay area doesn't get "hot". HAHAHA!! Sure!! As far as I'm concerned, anything over 80 is too warm!!
