It's freakin' hot.

I'm writing this at 1 am. I've been waiting for it to cool off so that I can go for my walk (earlier today, we had a "feels like" temp of 103), but even now, it still "feels like" 95 in metro Detroit, according to weather.com. What the HELL. I'm going to have to go walk anyway (yes, at 1 in the morning--my work schedule is noon to 7 pm, so the rest of my days and nights are thrown off accordingly)--but it's going to be pretty unpleasant. I'll be lucky if I can get in 30 minutes.

My sister and I spent the day in Grandville yesterday, and according to my van, it was 98º there. Getting out of the van felt like opening the oven door and getting that suffocating whoosh of unbreathable air.

And when I got home last night, at 10:45, it was still 90º in South Bend. John said when he and Brent went to Mc Donalds last night the bank thing said 101º. I never know how accurate those are, especially when they're right in the sun, but FUCK! Unbearable.

Our poor soldiers, in all their full "battle rattle", as mine calls it, must be dying.

Yup, Hot-hot-hot.

So how many hours are you working at the office now? 12-7 seems like you'd be pretty much full time.

I'm aiming for 35 hours a week. =-)

It hit 103 degrees yesterday in Ft. Lauderdale with 75% humidity said it felt like 110! Jen just stay outside - you can sweat those pounds away :) - I would rather be sweating like crazy than freezing.

I would rather be freezing! You can always add clothes... when you're naked with the air on and the fans blowing and you're STILL sweating, there's nothing you can do!

I would not be pissed at all if it snowed tomorrow.

Renee, if you just jinxed it and it snows here tomorrow (which is entirely possible in MI), I'm coming to IN to kick your ASS.

LOL :-) Bring it, bitch! It's too damn hot out to fight anyway. We'd get all sweaty and have to rip each other's clothes off and maybe get out the garden hose... hehehe. maybe you SHOULD come down here to "kick my ass", as you call it ;-)
