Dog Days

I think the hot summer days are finally here. There is no more rain in the forecast. The only forecase we have is HOT. Temps reaching near 100 with a heat index over 100. These are the days I hate most. The ones where I tend to stay inside most of the time and never get out unless I have to.

It sucks I hate to swim or, you know, wear a bathing suit or I might enjoy summer a little more.

Saturday was the chapter meeting. Always enjoy hearing the speakers and learning new stuff. Afterward, we headed to lunch and I had a really fattening patty melt and it was delish.

Finally got home, picked up the kiddo, and we headed to the movies. We finally saw UP! I loved it. It had laugh out loud moments. My favorite was the dog, Doug. He cracked me up. We saw it in 3-D and while cool, it gave me a headache. Got home and I made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner.

I was so tired by the end of the day, I literally fell into bed. Got up fairly early on Sunday, started laundry (always a joy) and then went to the store. One of my most hated chores. I let the kiddo be in charge of the calculator which actually went really well until the end when he “misplaced” it because he got distracted by gum. It’s gone. At least it was a freebie so I didn’t care but he was beside himself.

Went to my brother’s for birthday stuff – my brother and niece both had birthday’s last week. Hung out there for a couple hours and then drove home in the searing heat. Have I mentioned I hate the heat?

Last night I made burgers and fries. Though nothing like the burgers and fries I saw on the CBS Sunday Morning show. Check out this place. It’s called Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, AZ. I feel a road trip coming on. haha
