You may have noticed that a little life blog has been MIA for a little while.  And that is pretty literal as you couldn’t even connect.  So to my few, but loyal, followers I will give you a brief or not to brief synopsis of why I have been away.
First off the server containing my blog crashed, and crashed bad that it could not be revived by online access.  Nope someone had to physically push the restart buttons and as luck would have it the people entrusted to take care of such problems were on vacation.  So a little life blog took a online (forced) break.
2nd’ly Washington Seattle area was hit with a heat wave and being inside of my house made me almost literally melt!  A 90 degrees house is pretty unbearable.  And when we moved here and My Mr and I asked about air conditioning the people here laughed.  “Oh you won’t need air conditioning here, and there are only a few days were it actually gets that bad and then just get a fan.”  What I learned here is that most people retreat to their cool basements or family members homes who do have air conditioning (which is rare anyway).  But as me and my Mr do not have said basement or family in the area sitting in the heat was really one of our only options.  I say these days are why you have air conditioning people!  90 degrees in any house is boarding unsafe especially for those who have kids or a puppy in our case! (which by the way Pax did great, just became a lethargic dog laying on the floor wherever it was coolest, or joining us outside in the shady grass.  We decided to MAN UP and show these Washingtonians that we Utah natives could handle the stifling heat on our own.  And we did.  It was painful and hot and the one fan in the house even got moved outside at one point so we could sit in the shade and let your house sizzle.  Ice cold showers were taken before bed too, just to get the core temp down and then sleep with the fan and windows all open.  But we made it through and the weatherman says that the temperatures should cool down now, I guess we will see.  For a minute I thought maybe we should drive down to Utah, it might be hotter, but at least everyone has air conditioning!
Alright enough of the whining, hopefully lovely Washington will return to the temperatures it promised to be and we will return to our sanity.  Happy Monday all I’m glad to be back!
