The heat is one thing, but the humidity? That’s another. Colorado isn’t usually this humid, which is why many people own swamp coolers. The past week has been so humid though, that the swamp cooler is barely working. The house is so muggy and awful that I’m under strict orders to go hide in the bedroom the second I start to feel too hot or get slightly lightheaded.
It sounds good in theory, but many of the days in the past week have included me leaving the bedroom only for bathroom trips, food, or twenty or thirty minutes to try to accomplish something (laundry, dishes, sewing, etc). The computer I use for the Mewtique and for blogging is in the back of the house, where very little cool air seems to reach. I’ve been pretty miserable, but trying to make do. Master Pravus keeps reminding me that my health is more important than anything that needs to get done, and that it’s always better for me to hide in the bedroom with a book than it is to wind up in the emergency room. Still. It’s tough.
We’re going to need to eventually upgrade the house to central AC, it seems, but that’s not going to be any time soon. ::Sigh::
If you need me, I’ll be hiding in the bedroom until Autumn hits.
