Crazy Heat

Today we got a break from the insane onslaught of excessive heat and humidity we've been experiencing here in DC.  It was record breaking and suffocating and I am thrilled to report that it now seems to have moved on. 

I think things tend to get a little crazy when it's severely hot outside.  People just can't keep it together and all the basics are no longer so basic.

In the past 48 hours, I have seen a few of my newly planted flowers die (yes--from lack of water), brought both kids to the ER to have the little guy's eye area examined after a funky bug bite, and been hit by a car at a stop sign on the way to pick the babe up at yoga.  All this, and the little guy got up at 5:30 am today.  Needless to say I'd like to run off to the Bahamas now, alone.

Luckily I have a few other flowers which have survived, the car's bumper got a bit more banged up but no one was hurt, and the little guy was not diagnosed with cellulitis or any other funky infection thing.

The heat wave has subsided and hopefully our temporary state of chaos has come to an end.

Has anyone else out there been having a weird week?

I have produced a narc. (re: previous post) Hmm...I'm not proud.
So sorry yesterday was awful. I agree. Full moons and heat bring out straange things.
