So I keep reading all of these wonderful posts about how much everyone loves summertime.  While I enjoy various aspects of summer (swimming, hanging out at the beach, vacations, etc.) I do not enjoy the heat.  I am so over it.  That's what living in the desert will do to you.  I went running this morning at 5:00 a.m. and it was 90 degrees outside and humid (well humid for here).  Needless to say I thought I was going to die! 

Good thing I didn't die running this morning, otherwise Mr. ESPN would have to pack for the girls (just imagine - red shirt orange skirt, striped top and polka dot shorts).  The girls and I are headed back east on Saturday ... The in-laws are picking us up and the girls are going to spend a week with them while I work in NJ (they live about an hour away in PA).  Mr. ESPN will be home enjoying the peace and quiet (and hopefully cleaning and doing some other small projects) for a week before flying out to meet us.

Guess what ... they are having an extreme heat wave on the east coast (well pretty much everywhere) right now.  So much for my infinite wisdom and planning this work trip/vacay for us to cool off a bit!

I'll be back later - if I don't melt!

We're headed back up to the mountains this weekend though to cool off and see the Biltmore! Have fun in NJ!

Good luck in NJ! My in-laws live in NJ too and it is just insanely humid!

We left my husband alone for a week and he accomplished nothing!!!!! Well he halfway put together the basketball hoop, but claims he needs me to finish it.

I am a little annoyed!

Hope your not too miserable on your vacation! I really thought it would be able to re-adjusted to this heat slowly. Not happening! We had something like 30 straight days of over 100 degree heat. SUCKS!!! I am really missing my Canadian summer now! This being almost 9 months preggo in 100 degree heat is MISERABLE! Hope you have at least one day of decent cooler temps! Ill keep my fingers crossed for ya! Can't wait to hear all about it though when you get back!

Well, so much for escaping the heat. I am glad you didn't die on your crazy ass 5AM run this morning. I am also sick of the heat. Sick. Have fun on the work/vaca! Those girls will get nice and spoiled and I guess Mr. ESPN will too.
