There's just no way else to say it. It's been a rotten week. My mom's been sick all week and I've been trying to keep their dishes washed, mail in, medications straight, etc. while also attending to our household and now our air conditioning is out and we are so unbelievably hot and miserable. It's 89 degrees in our house at 10:00 p.m. and we can't get it to cool down. It's only 80 outside, but it seems no air will circulate. I have windows open and fans on, but we're still absolutely miserable. I'm going to tuck away some money for the next time this happens for a HOTEL. This is pitiful. I know we are wimps and our ancestors didn't have air conditioning, but when you are used to it, it's hard to transition to not having it, suddenly, on one of the hottest days of the year (98 degrees this afternoon). Also, the kids and I went to get gas this afternoon and we couldn't get the gas cap off of the van. I totally can't understand why we can't get it off, but we can't. We stopped short of asking strange men at the gas station to open it for us. I hope next week is better.
