This week was all about the heat

The heat was the story this week. Starting on Tuesday, it got hot. Where I work in Watsonville, it was cool and comfortable but as I would drive home it would get hotter and hotter and I’d get grumpier and grumpier. I do not function well in hot weather. It was really hot on the 4th of July. Despite lots of shade and the close proximity of the pool, I ended up spending most of the day inside in the air conditioning. It was a late night though as we waited for the traffic to die down before heading home. The next night, we took the kids to a late movie to see Ratatoulle (or however you spell it — my spell checker wants it to be Grateful for some odd reason). Very funny movie but also late night. Last night, it was much, much cooler. I ended up going to bed at the same time as the kids. I got about 10 hours of sleep and that was awesome for me. I needed it.

Here are a few more pictures of my week . . .

Contented was the Cat — although to be honest, I think she was just closing her eyes and hoping we’d get the hell away from her!
