Did I say that loud enough? No? How about this...
I HATE ARIZONA!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, it has it has good points...no blizzards, no mudslides, no tornadoes or hurricanes. We are home to one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and have beautiful places to visit such as Sedona, Painted Desert and more Indian Ruins than you can shake stick at. What we lack in natural disasters, however, we more than make up for in unbearable weather.
We were fortunate this year in that it didn’t start getting really hot until the end of June. Well, now the surface of the sun I call home, also known as Arizona, is making up for it. Look at this graphic for proof
Got home today and the thermostat said 97. Not. Good. Not even a little. My mom said the repair guys were here for an hour then got called away and sid they'd be back, but never did. My brother got in touch with the landlord who claimed the repair guy said the a/c wasn't getting any power and suggested flipping the circuit breaker. Would you believe that did the trick? Gaah! The temperature is slowly going down, but it's got a ways to go.
Did I mention how much I hated Arizona?
I don't want to even think of it being 115 degrees for the next 2 days so I'll share a picture of my fuzzy butts Temecula and Abbie. Abbie is the grey tabby in the front. She's TINY. This picture makes her look about the same size as Tem, but they're not. He's twice her size. And if you've been following my blog for awhile you might notice the tabby is a different color than the one I've shared here before. I don't know if I mentioned it before, but I lost my red tabby Royal back in January. He was diagnosed with diabetes and the vet believed that was just one of his medical problems. I couldn't put him through daily insulin injections and trips to the vet every two weeks so I made that tough decision nobody wants to make. I still feel guilty about it, but I know deep down it was the right choice.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. My brother is supposed to be going to a music festival in Irvine with a buddy of his so my mom and I might go have dinner at our favorite restaurant Saturday. We haven't eaten there in more than a year.
*just a quick little note* 98% of my blogging is done on a 7 inch Samsung tablet and sometimes it has a mind of its own and it often results in misspelled words. I usually proofread what I've written, but sometimes I miss something here or there. Now, you might think it's no big deal that it says "tje" instead of "the" and in the grand scheme of things, it doesn'tm but it bugs me so if I see it I have to fix it. And the last sentence of this post...it had originally said "we haven't eated there i more than a year"...that one is a bit embarrassing to me. The missing 'n' for 'in' is no big deal, but the 'eated' is the biggy. Hahahaha.
Oh, and the heat has claimed another victim...me. Yesterday I was out looking for the horses and even though I spent most of the time in my air conditioned car, when you pair that with not having a/c in the house and the high temperature in general...I woke up this morning feeling under the weather so I stayed home.
