On Which I Have No Comment...


We spend a great amount of time outdoors these days. That is, because it is miserably hot inside due to the no A/C issue here in Germany.

No A/C in Germany due to them being a crazy amount of money and we have no idea how long we will even be here to use one...no comment!

You can go here to see our current forecast. Temps upwards of 100 degrees...no comment!

We have only a lil over a month left in our summer. Where does the time go? My gosh...the kiddos just got out of school. And in the next month, I have to write 2 HUGE papers for my class, finish numerous other projects for the class, try to hopefully complete several household projects I have been putting off, and mark a million and one other things off my list...no comment!

Trying to clean and be productive in this heat...no comment.

Can you sense a trend? I know it was not this hot here last year. It was pretty hot some days but nothing like this. Many have said this is the harshest year so far weatherwise, and I say it can't get much worse than this. Cold showers before bed, cold showers after getting up in the mornings...yuck!!

We have made some time to have some fun in all this yuckiness. We've been to a few water parks, played outside with our hoses, pools, slip n slides, and water balloons. We've had some fun cookouts with good friends. The night of the 10th was the yearly light and fireworks fest and we are fortunate to live on a post where we can see everything all right here from the comforts of our closest playground. I bought glow sticks and glow in the dark tattoos for the neighborhood kiddos for that night and they were a huge hit. I also made homemade sno cones for everyone and they were delicious!! We've tried to make as many memories as possible during this most miserable time. We're doing the best we can but momma needs a break from the heat. Even the dog spends her days panting away from the heat.

What are you doing to beat the heat this summer? Hopefully you can go inside and cool off with your A/C after a long day outside. I really do try to appreciate the time we have here, but I am now counting down the days until we leave. Momma is spoiled with the A/C.

There is so much to tell you about and so much to write about, but I will sign off for now and share that for later. Life is pretty unbearable here even on a good day right now. Have heard that today is supposed to be our hottest day so far...and all I want to do is lay here and not move for sweating to death. Eeewwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!

Does it cool off at night? At least here we get some relief from hot days.

Hang in there. Make more sno cones! :-)
