Heat Wave…

Last night I went out with some friends and we thought we should sit out on the patio and enjoy this last month of summer.  BIG MISTAKE!! It was so hot that I could feel the sweat literally dripping down my back. After 20 minutes in the heat we had to eat our dinner inside.  There was nothing we could do about the heat. Nothing.  When you’re that hot you can’t get more naked than naked and even then, you can’t be out in public. Naked. Living in Winnipeg is frustrating because we don’t get nice summers all the time.

There was a time when the summers were so great and you could count on them like clock work.  In the past few years our summers have been bad.  Either it was too cold, rained too much, too many mosquitoes…just crappity, crap, crap.  Now it’s hot, and in consecutive days to boot, and here I am pseudo complaining?!  What the truck?!   I love to sun bathe but being 37 weeks pregnant really puts a damper on the sunning thing.  Doesn’t feel good to lay in the sun when parts of your body are in constant contact with other parts of your body….

The heat may be good for your skin but it does some sick van damage to you hair.  Winnipeg humidity can take the best tresses and turn them into limpy, frizzy, poofy awfulness.  My recommendation for times like this is to just get it up and outta sight.  Load your hair up with some product and just pile it on top.  If your locks are short maybe throw a braid it the front to get it off your face and let the rest lie as it may.  The braid will give some interest to the sadness that is your hot mess of a hair do.  Braids are actually a great way to wear your hair during times like these… Too short in the front for a braid?  Just twist it back and pin, or stick a headband in it.

At the end of the day, I shouldn’t even complain ’cause by October things will get real chilly and then what?  A whole new ball game that is ice cold…  As hot as it gets, or is going to get, lets try to enjoy the heat.  Nothing lasts forever and if you have an air conditioner you’re laughing.  If not… well, nothing to laugh about.  At all…
