So today I finally broke down and turned on the AC. I might be the only one in Myrtle Beach who waits until June to turn it on every year, but I love the fresh air that comes from leaving the windows open. My DH and I like to be warm, so we try to last as long as we can before we give in. Basically when the nights start getting warmer it's time to turn on the air conditioning. This year I'm actually early! Normally we don't turn it on until we almost can't sleep at night for the heat and humidity. It hasn't quite gotten that bad yet (thanks to ceiling fans) but based on this week's upcoming forecast it wouldn't have been long!
Now I just need a swimming pool. I miss having a pool so badly. I was actually severely tempted to buy one of those inflatable kiddie pools. They have one that's ten feet long! Of course it's less than 2 feet deep, but at least I can lay down in it and swish my arms around some. As the summer gets hotter I may actually get it. My neighbors down the block just got a fancy inground pool. I'm so jealous. Do you think it would be too obvious if I all of a sudden decided to be neighborly and introduce myself and find reasons to come over? I mean, DH and I have only lived here for 6 years. It's never too late to make a new friend, right?
When I was a kid we didn't have air conditioning until I was in 7th grade. And even then it was just one single window unit for the whole house. How in the world did I survive those summers without sweating to death? Oh wait, I remember. We had a pool!
