I do not mind the leaves, however. Sometimes I can trick my mind into thinking it is fall when I see all the leaves scattered on the ground. Sometimes I don a hoodie in the middle of the summer heat... in vehement protest of this horrible heat. This is the only way I can make it from May to October- without getting rash and running away to Seattle- the land of rain and reasonable temperatures.
Since the weather has cooled down a smidge, I can now let the kids outside to play and I can leave the screen open to "supervise" while I catch up on some emails and twitter. In the morning... before it shoots back up to a million degrees. This has caused me large amounts of joy, I release the hounds to the backyard, and they are relatively entertained for a decent amount of time.
We are REALLY into collections at our house. (pronounced by the girls: Cor-rections!")
Am I raising future stars of Hoarding: Buried Alive?
