He really has some funny stories!!
Livin’ in Arizona
May 30th: Just moved to Arizona . Now this is a state that knows how to live!! Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. What a place! It is beautiful. I’ve finally found my home. I love it here.
June 14th: Really heating up . Got to 100 today. Not a problem. Live in an air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun everyday like this. I’m turning into a sunworshipper. June 30th: Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots of cactus and rocks What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing lawn for me. Another scorcher today, but I love it here.
July 10th: The temperature hasn’t been below 100 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least it’s kind of windy though. But getting used to the heat is taking longer than I expected.
July 15th: Fell asleep by the community pool. Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body. Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though. Got to respect the ol’ sun in a climate like this.
July 20th: I missed Lomita (my cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning. By the time I got to the hot car at noon, Lomita had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stank up theupholstery. The car now smells like Kibbles and shit… I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat.
July 25th: The wind sucks . It feels like a giant freaking blow dryer!! And it’s hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the fritz and the AC repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he neededto order parts.
July 30th: Been sleeping outside on the patio for 3 nights now. $225,000 house and I can’t even go inside. Why did I ever come here? Aug. 4th: Its 115 degrees. Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today. It cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 85. I hate this stupid state.
Aug. 8th: If another wise ass cracks, ‘Hot enough for you today?’ I’m going to strangle him. Damn heat. By the time I get to work the radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell like baked cat!!
Aug. 9th: Tried to run some errands after work. Wore shorts, and when I sat on the seats in the car, I thought my ass was on fire. I lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and ass.Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried ass, and baked cat.
Aug 10th: The weather report might as well be a damn recording. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. It’s been too hot to do squat for 2 damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. Doesn’t it ever rain in this damn desert? Water rationing will be next, so my $1700 worth of cactus will just dry up and blow over. Even the cactus can’t live in this damn heat.
Aug. 14th: Welcome to HELL! Temperature got to 115 today. Forgot to crack the window and blew the damn windshield of the car. The installer came to fix it and said, “Hot enough for you today?” My sister had to spend $1500 to bail me out of jail. Freaking Arizona. What kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here??
Will write later to let you know how the trial goes.”
Just thought I would share today. All I know is: TGIF!!! Really.
DH is playing in a golf tourney tomorrow and I gots nothing planned 'cept scrappin!!!! I'm gonna print out some pics tonite. I will more than likely work on my DS's swimming album. Put in all his ribbons and such. Gotta have a plan or I'll end up just "wandering" from "side to side!" But if I go at it with a project in mind, I'll more than likely get it done!! I'll let ya know what I get accomplished! ;) I haven't had a "free" weekend to scrap in a long time. Might have to put in a movie. An adult movie. One that isn't "Disney" related. Or a cartoon. Get my drift? Aw, man! Just realized. Flip-flopped my living room and now when I sit at the kitchen table, I CAN'T SEE THE TELEVISION!!!! Guess I'll have to take out the card table.
