It's hot in Texas this week! Just like I like it.

Yep, I enjoy the Texas heat. So much so that I'm now RED. It just can't be helped though. I was on call this past weekend and had to do the changes during our Sunday morning 1 am to 5 am changes. So I didn't get to sleep until around 4 and that makes for a lazy rest of the day after you've had a 5 hour nap. If you sleep too late you can't really get to bed very well that night, which makes it even MORE difficult to get up at 3:30 on Monday morning.

So, after arrising at around 9'is I got out the weedeater and made it around the house before the battery crapped out. I like the cordless, rechargeable kind cause they're lighter to carry around and I can keep it running. Unlike that gas one we have. Got that done and then ran over to a friend's house to pick up a purse. She is an Avon Lady. Spent a good hour or more yapping and gossipping. Back to the house where I donned my bathing suit and headed for my above ground, Wal-Mart back yard pool where I manage to spend about 3 hours of laziness. I'd lay on the float and bake on one side then flip to the other. Occasionally I'd slide off into the water to cool off and then climb back up. I'm sure that part looks especially attractive.

Anyway, I knew my skin was getting a bit on the tender side but I just couldn't give it up. It felt too good: the heat of the sun, the breeze, the cool water of the pool. But I'm not too bad. Today almost all the red is gone and I don't even think I'll peal!!!
