Day 18: A/C Anyone?

We don't have air conditioning in our apartment. Apparently, Salem builders didn't think the apartments needed air conditioning because of their "mild" summers. Yeah... they forgot about the pregnant women, who, on 95 degree days are melting in their apartments. No big. I don't think I have ever appreciated a/c more than I do right now. I finally got in my car and drove to Costco just so I could get some relief. And I guess we needed groceries too. :)

So this whole no a/c thing got my wheels turning. How the heck did those poor pioneer women survive on the plains? Walking in severe heat in a dress with multiple layers while being hormonally hot (yes, I just made that phrase up) is not my idea of a picnic. I. Would. Have. Died. Seriously, I am such a pansy. And I hate being hot. Those women were so strong. I want to be that strong. I don't wanna be a pansy anymore! I want to be a tough cookie who can weather the storms and live without a/c. So I am going to be strong. Summer won't last forever and in T-minus 10 1/2 weeks, this baby will be born and I will no longer be hormonally hot (at least I can only hope). I can make it. *Cue The Little Engine That Could, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!*

I too have often thought of those pioneer women and wondered how they survived the heat. I never would have made it.

Ehh...dont think to fast your hormones are still crazy wacked after baby comes i remember waking up in a hot sweat after Camdon was born. He was born in it wasnt the weather outside. Maybe it was just me though? One could hope!
