I honestly don’t know how the pioneers did it. I’m about to complain about the insane heat wave that took over Pittsburgh and how awful it’s been making life, yet I have a semi-adequate window unit air conditioner, and I don’t have to wear dresses and petty-coats all day. I would have died. I would have wished death upon myself. I’m so glad I live now and not then.
It’s been hot. Really hot. Back in the day in high school and college this would have been fine. I would have loved going to the pool and lake all day everyday. But when your nine months pregnant, have a one-year old who you constantly worry is becoming dehydrated and sunburned, and have no pool it’s just pretty much miserable .For this reason we haven’t gone out much during the day, however the other day we did attempt a walk with a new friend down-town on the boardwalk by the river. It was a beautiful walk, but oh the heat. Poor Lincoln. I felt like an abusive parent. I kept squirting him with water and making him drink, yet by the end of the walk this was the result….hot, sweaty, tired and adorable.
I know I’ll be kicking myself when winter comes and wish it was summer. I just want a happy medium. 70 degrees would be nice for a little while. At least I’m not a pioneer.
