This Is Why I Prefer Autumn

Oh my word, it's HOT.

It's hot & sweaty & rather unpleasant. It's the kind of hot where your baby can't sleep & your hair goes all frizzy.

We found out the rather unpleasant truth that our air conditioner doesn't fit in our windows in any way, shape or form. We bought two more fans to move some air around, but it's still borderline unbearable. Gretchen finally fell asleep tonight with the oscillating fan in our bedroom.

One of our new fans is the kind that fits into the window and can either blow in, or exhaust the hot air from inside -- however, despite that fact that it has cooled off outside, we can't have it blowing the cooler air in because of GNATS?? Seriously, there are thousands of these little bugs in the apartment now -- two are crawling around on my monitor right now. Ick.

I hope you're all able to beat the heat tonight -- I'm craving central air right about now!

I'm not much of a fan of summer either. I like the Fall and Spring the best.
Cool wishes for a nice breeze tomorrow!

I also greatly prefer spring and fall. It is unspeakably hot here right now. And it's not even July yet! Yikes.

We are lucky so far in MA, we haven't had too many unbearable nights but I know they are coming. Take care!!

I just read your guest post over at SortaCrunchy and wanted to check out your blog.

I don't know what I would do without AC. We live in the South (in the US) and I am in my third trimester. I think I would just melt. It is something to be very thankful for.

I enjoyed reading your birth story. I've had two previous high-risk pregnancies. If this (my third) continues to go well, I am planning for a home birth with any baby that may come after him. I've been able to go through both of my previous births without pain meds; so I don't think that will be a problem. I would just love to not have to be hooked up to anything during my labor and delivery. Thanks for sharing your story.

Please send some of that heat west!! We have had only about one week that was actually hot. Now it's threatening to rain every day but it's not even successful at that!

aye, that's so miserable :( I was up in Pennsylvania over the weekend... beautiful, perfect, 72 degree weather. Then when I got back to Florida, I stepped outside at 11:30pm to 90 degree (32ish celcius?), muggy, humid weather, ugh! I am grateful for central air... i'd be melted by now. Hope you find ways to cool off!
