Scattered ramblings of a melted brain


It’s hot.

It’s been hot for two solid months.

It’s technically now Fall.

It’s still hot.

81 degrees in my house on 9/23 at 3pm with NO BREEZE coming in ANY open window.

That’s just too damn hot.

Due to the hot, I am immensely lazy.

I don’t want to run.

I don’t want to write.

I don’t want to work on anything at all.

I don’t want to cook.

I don’t want to think.

It’s too damn hot.

I want to nap.

I want to read twitter.

I want to read anything really.

I want to be on the sofa watching TV.

I’d like to do all of that without guilt, but I haven’t mastered that yet.

It’s too damn hot.


16 had a friend from the football team over to hang out with us this weekend. You know, because another teenage body is what we needed in the already too damn hot house!

They did what teens do – ate and played video games all night. It would have been all day Saturday and all night, but he ended up having to work security for the pop warner group until after 6pm so they did see daylight and sunshine for a few hours.

The final tally on what they ate/drank from noon Saturday until noon Sunday?

  • 16 bottles of Dr Pepper
  • Two cheeseburgers and a bag of Ore Ida fries (made by me)
  • 8 donuts
  • 2 cartons of goldfish crackers
  • 4 popsicles
  • 2 burritos from Chipotle
  • 2 cans spaghettios
  • Random snacks at the pop warner game

And that’s just what I know about!

Why did I let him do that given his historical lack of motivation in school and such?

Well, because so far even with the hardest academic load he’s ever carried, he’s keeping up better than he usually does. Yes, he skipped an English essay already, but he made up for it with an extra credit assignment – voluntarily! He got a 77 on his first Calc AB test but he’s done all the homework and it turned out no one got higher than an 85. During the week he rarely has the chance to goof off on the Xbox, so an occasional weekend blowout is OK as long as schoolwork and laundry is done (which they were).

Also? It was too damn hot to do anything else!
