And the heat goes on!!

I work in a hair salon as many of you know. We work with chemicals that all emit an odor of some sorts, and we work with hot hair dryers. This is NOT a good thing when the air conditioning decides not to work in the salon!!! By noon the temperature in the salon was around 80, and by 2 (which is when I left) it was around 87. It felt even warmer because of the hair dryers. I was dripping sweat, and the client I was supposed to have at 2 came in felt the air and re-scheduled. I went home with the grand daddy of all headaches, and felt sick to my stomach. After coming home and backing in the coolness which is my house, I felt better, although I asked roomie to pick up Princess from daycare and took a nap. I can't imagine having a job as hot as mine in the old days before there WAS ac, nor can I imagine having to work outside in this heat and humidity! My hat is off to all you workers out there who deal with this on a daily basis, one day and I was useless!!! The heat is supposed to break in the next few days, and by the weekend, it should be in the high 70's or low 80's. Woo hoo!!!!!
This past weekend my sis-in-law and the kids came down, what a nice weekend we had! This makes three for three on the nice weekend meter! Sunday we had a barbecue, real simple, hot dogs and hamburgers and chicken burgers on the grill. Is there anything so tasty as hot dogs and hamburgers cooked outside? The weather cooperated for us, it cooled down enough Sunday evening so we could be outside without dying. After the barbecue, we wet off fireworks again, and everyone stayed until about 10, which when you have kids is quite late. There were 8 kids and 8 adults, and being outside it was fun. Monday we went to Wadsworth Falls and the kids waded through the water. I may complain about the heat, but seriously the weekends have been fantastic! Last year I recall most of the weekends being rained out.
Hope everyone is surviving the heat, and for those of you who yearn for some warmth, I hope you get some soon!
