I miss you...

It is so true that you don't know what you have until it is gone. In the spirit of my crankiness, I thought I would take a few moments to reflect upon how much I miss air conditioning. I admit it...I like a cool house and a cool car. I like to keep things cold. I don't open windows...to humid and muggy. I crank up the air...that is what I do. So, since this weekend the house has not had any AC...and it is freaking scary hot. Oppressive on the top floor...if you ask me. So much so that as you rise up the stairs a wall of hotness smacks you and then lingers for your entire stay.

I don't think I slept that well and I feel terrible for being so darn cranky about it. Seriously...in the grand scheme of things...this is no big deal. There are so many worse things to have happen to you. Yet...I'm still annoyed. I think part of it is because when I get really hot it sort of mimics what it is like when my blood sugar is low. Even when I try to think "igloo" thoughts...I'm still roasting. Even with a fan blowing hot air, I feel like I am outside under the sun. But I am hopeful...hopeful that on Thursday all well be right with the world because I can crank it up again. On full blast...

I can feel the heat when you describe it smacking you in the face climbing the stairs. But I would love to have some - I hate the cold - which is of course why I live in New England.
