Oh the heat, with the heat index today feels like 120 degrees. Can you tell by my sad hair and gleaming nose?  So tempting to complain on here, but then I think of the Facebook status my friend Kim had the other day:

I was going to complain about how hot it is.. then I realized that at least 1) it isn't 109 degrees; 2) I'm not 5,700 miles from home; 3) I'm not dressed in a full BDU uniform and helmet and carrying 70+ lbs.; and 4) there is very little chance that anyone will shoot at me or that I might drive over a bomb in the road today. Thanks to all who serve!

Puts it into perspective. I also think of all of those who do not have air conditioning or all the cold water they wish to drink. So yes, my hair looks dreadful and I am now rocking a bit of chub rub, but I feel very lucky for what I have this summer… though I have a feeling I will be spending the majority of this summer weekend indoors! What are your weekend plans?

    This weekend we are redoing our master closet. We are putting in shelves and taking out one rack. This means I HAVE to go through my closet and toss some things. We will be staying inside for sure!
