Dog Days of Summer Contest

Channon wants to know how I handle the heat...

I thought today with it's 95 degree plus the humidity would be a good day to answer that question...

I close up the house by 8 am - shut windows and doors and draw the curtains - turn every ceiling fan on that we have (four on the main floor) plus a couple floor fans - then. I find a cool place to sit and I knit while drinking my beverage of choice (raspberry iced tea) Boring.

Oh...News Flash for all those who know me well...are you sitting down....ready?...I quit drinking pop!!!...CAN you believe it!??!!!

I don't know what I am going to eat for lunch now since the Cherry Coke is gone...Cheetos and water just doesn't cut it....

Ummm...have you lost your mind woman? No pop? How long has this been going on?

Well, I'll one up you - I have volunteered to work with an after school program called Girls On Track. It teaches life skills, builds self esteem, etc. The only kicker is that the culminating activtiy is a 5K run in december.

Yes, it appears that we are all losing our minds!

I will need to see pictures of this 5K run to believe that you actually participated!!!!

I have been pop free since the beginning of June...Did you know (big article in Tribune)...only one pop a day puts you at a 48% risk factor for Heart disease, high blood pressure and other nasty stuff...

Actually I was just trying to prevent my rear end from needing a "wide load" sign....
