Hell Opened Up

That's right. The summer should be winding down and it feels hotter than it has all season.

Why a post about the weather?? No, it's not because I couldn't think of anything else, but because it put me in a really bad mood today.

First of all, I had to do "real" work today - meaning, I was OUTSIDE and in the heat. It was about 101F today here in Houston and I was on a car lot. I just can't tell you how hot new car dealer lots can be - white, white cement with shiny, clean cars covered in reflective chrome, and the sun coming out unclouded at approximately 6:45am and not settling down until after I was home. (side note - being outside and not in my office means I am not surfing blogs all day - I had to work the ENTIRE day! eewwwwwwwwwww)

What in the heck are you doing on a car lot, Lynda? An audit! Which includes an inventory. And that means counting every, single vehicle they have.

Luckily, I don't do these as much as I used to do, but there are days when I get the short straw and this was one of them.

So, after an hour and a half out in Hell's backyard (you know I'm right - it's a CAR LOT for goodness sake!), I am wringing wet and my hair is boinging in a 1000 different directions. And what do you know? Mascara seems to have made its waterproof way OFF my eyelashes and onto my face. Lovely.

What gal wouldn't feel pretty with all that going on? And it's right then, at that moment, that you have to go in and begin the audit part of the day. Kinda' sucks your professional impression right back down into the pits of Hell.

I didn't finish up today, so it's back there tomorrow, but hopefully only for an hour or two.

Don't they know I need to get back to the office and do some surfing????

I'm so sorry...and you have to be back at it tomorrow too! Maybe you should just skip the mascara for a day!?

I'm such a wimp: sunny and 80 here yesterday afternoon and I'm like: "wooooo! IT IS HOT! Where's the shade?"
On the other hand, Lynda, me and the missus would love to visit you in February........

Sounds like hell to me! I hate the hot hot hot weather but then when you add humidity into the equation it's even worse. My sympathies!!

When The Hubby, Moker, worked downtown in an office, seems he spent most of his day "surfing." Now he works at home. He wakes up, gets his work done, and goes golfing. I wish I were so disciplined! If I worked at home, I'd probably stay in my PJs all day and never get anything accomplished!
