OK, I know...

...that by now, you're all probably sick of my complaining about our weather. I can hear you all the way over here. "Oh, ChiTown, shut the hell up already!! It's July!" And, I get that. However, if I lived in freakin' Miami, or the Bahamas, I wouldn't be complaining. (ok, yes, I would be cuz I HATE the heat) But, I live in CHICAGO. Yes, we're known for our hot, humid, oppressive summers. But, shit, it's been DAYS now of heat index readings in the triple freakin' digits. Enough, already!!

I went to lunch with my mom today, this is what her car said when we got to the restaurant at noon.
I purposely picked a parking spot under a tree, in the shade. But, at about 1:30 when we came out, it said this!!!Ugh! It's just ridiculous.

Since I'm in a bitching mood, let me tell you what an assbag our new mayor is. He's been screwing with teachers from the moment he was elected. He wants to completely revamp our entire education system, blah, blah, blah. I know I haven't been talking about it, but that's mostly cuz it pisses me off so much, I try not to think about it more than necessary. However, today's little announcement in the news was too good to not share. What a jerk!

I feel your pain about the heat. In STL we have had 100's for about a week now. It's even too hot to swim- the water feels like bathwater! Ugh.

Our temp today was 100. My pool was 89 degrees.....unheard of.
And am I bitching? no so much.
Thank goodness for a/c.

Sorry about the temperature woes. We don't have a thermometer in our car. I would probably get pissy if we did. We are getting a new 4WD before school starts, and I guess they come with all the newer models.

About the mayor....what an ass. Where I worked, you would not progress in the administration track if you did not have your kids enrolled in the public schools.
