The AC units are in, baby! Normally we wait until mid-May, but since Mother Nature decided to kick off summer early, so are we. Yesterday? The temperature hit about 80. Today? 78-82. Yikes!
It was so hot in here yesterday. And then last night, my mother and brothers came over for dinner — rigatoni with tomato sauce and garlic bread. But then Dan needed dinner too, and he doesn’t like rigatoni, and really wanted meatballs. So guess who stood over a hot stove, making rigatoni AND spaghetti AND tomato sauce AND meatballs to simmer in another pan of tomato sauce? And not one but TWO loaves of garlic bread.
And after everybody wolfed down dinner, they all looked at me expectantly. Dessert. So the oven went back on again, the kitchen’s temperature soared to roasting, and I made a delicious butter golden yellow cake with triple chocolate fudge chip icing on it.
And then came the clean up. So much fun. After everyone left and the kidlets were in bed, I begged Dan to install the AC units. He agreed, but only if I beat the first boss song on Guitar Hero 3. It took me two tries, but I did it.

Today? I thought about the Hands-on House for Alyssa, but I think I’ll save that for tomorrow, when it’s supposed to be cool, cloudy and rainy. So today… either a walk at a park that has a pond with loads of ducks and geese, and/or another trip to the playground. But for now, I’ve got laundry to fold!
