Heat Wave!

The Tri-state area is being hit with record breaking temperatures this week.  I am not a huge fan of extreme weather conditions.

Yesterday, I donned a light, cool sundress from Old Navy and went with Lil' Miss to select a present for her best friend.  I quite literally melted the short 30 or so steps to the car!  The car was like a sauna. Fortunate for us, the spotty air conditioning had been checked and repaired prior to the spike in temperature.

The heat was so taxing that upon our return, I promptly laid down and settled in for an unplanned two hour nap.  Now I believe whole-heartedly how quickly heat exhaustion can set in.  Thank goodness for central air conditioning.  I am actually glad major cities have set up cooling centers for those who do not have it.  It is scary what a rise in temperatures can do to the body.

Hope everyone is staying cool while the heat index is on the rise.  Remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of H2O. Have a great week!
