You have got to be kidding!

Gayla, our German Shepherd, got sprayed by a skunk last night AGAIN! This is the second time in a week! We just had her bathed, even though that doesn't do away with the smell completely, and now I guess we'll have to take her back again. Add to that the heat index outside is in the 90's and many Rhode Island homes don't have A/C, including ours. We have fans going everywhere, but I think I'm going to end up sweating through the week. My solution was to get us out of the house this morning and go shopping, which is a task in itself, but I think after naptime today, we'll go in the back yard and keep the sprinkler going for awhile :) Charley should enjoy that. He and Andrew, the little 18 mo. I babysit a few days a week, loved it yesterday! We'll see how it goes. I think the heat just wears you down . . . on top of Charley's early morning wake up calls (5:30 again) and the dog, ugghhh

I grew up in PA without any A/C nor fans you and your boys can handle it.

Stay cool

I grew up in Houston where it can be sweltering. I had never even heard of a modern house without A/C until I moved up here. You're right though, they're managing. :)
