Holy Heat Wave…

…it is September Right?

I know there a lot hotter places in the country with a lot worse heat waves but holy crap it’s been hot here the last few days. I am at work in order to get some A/C (and do work – despite this writing break). It was great motivation to come into work. No apartments in San Diego have A/C (unless your richish) because generally they just aren’t required. But for the like 2-3 weeks it’s sweltering life is a bit miserable in the apartment. I am one of the lucky ones who has a couple of A/C units but that really only makes it livable on these days not exactly comfortable but not nearly as bad as it could be. Marty doesn’t want to go out hardly! So I make sure we do multiple, long early walks when the temperature doesn’t resemble hell. Otherwise it’s a no go for him. He just wont. Looks at me like ‘Mom it’s freaking gross out there and I am gonna stay in here okay?’ I can’t imagine being unhoused when it’s this miserable (ok really at all – my worst fear). There is just no relief for those poor folks.

Back to work! That is what Labor Day is all about yeah?

The End of August Has Arrived…

…and all my mind hears is “This is Halloween This is Halloween!”

Although the current heat wave is making it a little harder. Although I grew up in Phoenix, AZ so it was never real cold on Halloween or anytime surrounding Halloween. I can’t wait to decorate the apartment and go shopping for Fall items! OMG it’s going to be awesome. As a desert dweller I am taught to fear and hate Summer. I don’t mind admitting I am the Basic Witch who loves all things Fall and especially Halloween!

I woke up again with anxiety over work and worrying I am dropping the ball and doing a bad job. It wasn’t as bad as the previous night but enough to make me tired today. Anxiety doesn’t just poof go away when you figure it out – it continues to flow through your body for awhile. Or at least it does for me. It flows in blood for awhile making all my cells buzz a little with it. That is the best way I can think to describe it. I hope it doesn’t happen again tonight. It is becoming a problem.
