With the type of spring we have had this year I knew summer would just jump right in, yup that's Nebraska for you.
We've had storms and lots of rain, sorry for those of you who are in a drought and now the heat and humidity begins. Yesterday was 99 degrees with a heat index of about 110.
Was it ever hot, at least we were out of the sun. They game seemed to take forever last night and we did not get out of the park until 11:00 p.m. at which point the temperature dropped down to
a cool 88 degrees. All I could think of was a nice cool house and cold shower - not asking too much am I?
I must have been asking for the world - I walked into the house at 11:15 p.m. My husband is in the family room in front of fans and not dressed for bed yet, at this hour that is unheard of for him. I looked at him and all I could say is, "why is it so HOT in here?" Of which he answered, "guess.".
I am beyond hot and sweaty and the last thing I wanted to think about was no air conditioner with another 99 degree high heat index day foretasted for the next day-of which crazy me scheduled us to work at Haymarket Park again - what an idiot.
As I am sitting on the couch next to B and thinking, all four of us will be working in an air conditioned environments but the house will be too hot for the dogs. As if reading my mind B says, "I've already made appointments for the dogs to go to puppy daycare. " Isn't he just the best. I used to scoff at people who took their pets to puppy daycare (sorry hope I don't offend anyone). Guess I just wasn't raised that way. Well, it has saved my tush twice now so no more scoffing. All three dogs are off to Kenel Inn. At least I know they will stay cool too, what we pet owners won't do for our pets.
We have an after-hours appointment sometime tonight; it was that or wait until Friday. As I write this post I am praying for God's mercy that He will allow the air conditioner to be fixed tonight and not cost us an arm and a leg. However, we will enduring whatever He wants us to endure
so do we have to do that with out complaining?
I pray for those who do not a choice and live where there is no air conditioning, we take it so much for granted.
I pray for those who are out in the heat by no choice of their own. Give them a place to escape the heat at least for a little while. If it be your will, show me how to help them. Amen.
