How do you spell relief?
I shouldn't be feeling so fatigued this early in the summer but our heatwave was brutal. It has wiped me out. I tried not to even think that or say it out loud. We're supposed to start cooling down starting today. But you know how that goes; It's SLOW.

My step-daughter and I were supposed to go swimming in the evening, but just too hot. I heard the water was like bath water, it was wall to wall people and the metal pool handles were scorching. Next week will be enjoyable.
I also have a ton of laundry to do. Those Flex alerts, asking us to conserve - 9am-10pm no washing, drying, dishwashing and to turn our AC to 78. Actually, when it is this HOT, 78 inside is still cool. But shhhhh, don't tell anyone, I set mine at 77.
And to make matters worse - our AC in our van went out again. We had the AC checked in April. I had saved the amount to actually install a new one but they said they fixed the leaks. 2 months later, it has no cooling whatsoever. So, tomorrow the husband will take it back and one way or another, we'll have air.
I belong to that neighborhood watch website called Next-Door and we all watch out for each other. Many reported their AC's went out in their home. Just one of the many "why's" in life...Why does the AC always go out in a heatwave or Why does the furnace go out in a coldsnap???
Relief is on its way.
