It got hot here in the last week. Now, keep in mind, when I say hot I mean pacific north west hot, say 30 to 32 degrees. Also keep in mind that the minute the temperature goes above 28 degrees for more than a day my internal whine system goes into overdrive. This week is supposed to be cooler so hopefully I can stop driving the husband nuts with my constant, ‘It’s so hot! Why is it so hot? Make it cooler!’
The heat has also been really hard on our dog Stella. She’s epileptic and has always had a mild heart murmur. In the last week the murmur suddenly changed from a 1 to a 4 on a scale of 5. She’s having so much trouble breathing and doesn’t want to eat anything. The heat is making that worse for her too. She’ll go for an ultrasound this week to get a look at her heart and see if the problem is something that can be helped with medication. Fingers crossed!
And finally, the best part of summer? School is out and everyone is on holiday. You are almost guaranteed a seat on the train for your commute. Magic!
