A Bit of Cabin Fever...

I didn't know you could have cabin fever in July... it has been so hot here that we have been staying indoors for the last few days. Ethan is climbing the walls and I don't blame him. I have been climbing the walls too. All the windows are closed and covered to keep the heat out. I forgot how much I need to see the outdoors to stay sane. I kind of felt trapped or held hostage in my own home. For those of you that think we are crazy for complaining about 107 degree weather take into consideration that Salem, Oregon's record high - ever - is 108 degrees. That should say something...

So, I claimed yesterday as National Bored Day.

So, today when I woke up I decided that today wasn't going to be the same. We took a trip to the corner market (can't go far since we have no air conditioning in my car) and bought ice cream and other goodies to make today a bit special.

Did it work? Not really... ice cream usually works, but not this time. I will keep you informed of what we do to make it through the day...

I totally understand the whole cabin fever thing. I can't even go online cause the computer is in my bedroom which is the hottest room in the APARTMENT! Ugh! So closed in here and dark. Yesterday was defiantly WAY TOO HOT! Today it was nice finally going to the fountains and getting out. I didn't want to go home. LOL.. Good luck with this stuff. lOL
