OK here is the deal; for five days I have been dying of over-heating. I was sure if I did not sweat so much my body would self-combust! Every day I have been wearing less layers and today I was just wearing a sweatshirt and thin summer jeans. In the barn today I was hot (as usual for the past 5 days). Everyone (not Dr. Meanor) thought maybe it was from Lymes (which I have still not been tested for). I was beginning to think I would be hot right into summer where I would look like the wax figures that melt in the heat. Everyday when I come into the house I turn down the thermostat to 60 so I can stand it in the house. Well today I came in and I thought the house was cold . I thought maybe I had left a window open…. but no windows were open. I looked at the thermostat and it was sitting on Mark’s usual 70. Oh well, I thought and ate lunch. After lunch I started working on entries for two shows and I noticed my feet where like ice. I called into the other room and asked Mark if we were out of heating oil and the furnace was turned off…..OMG!!!! That is what the dogs say to Mark at night! Every night they look at Mark and say (in my mind) “Hey dad did you pay the heat bill, because it is really cold in here.” I have gone to the “dog” side. Of course we had heat and the house was 70, but I WAS STILL FREEZING!!! How can I go from burning up to freezing in less than 1 hour? From 3:00 pm on I have been cold; hands, feet, chills, goosebumps and everything that goes with freezing to death. I had to watch American Idol under a quilt with only my eyes peering out. Yes, I was cold from my nose to my toes. I am still frozen as I write this. I will have to drain the hot water tank when I take a shower tonight before I get in bed or I will not be able to sleep. What is my problem? There is a song I think Katy Perry sings that describes me today…You’re hot and then cold…you’re up and then down…. That would be me this week. Oh great; now I will have the song looping in my head all night! This could be a LLLOOONNNGGG night!
Speaking of American Idol, what is up with the judging? Last night all the guys mixed the songs up too much and the judges did not like it. Tonight the first girl, I call her “Boxersocks” mixed the song TOTALLY UP and they LOVED IT! The rest of the girls sang the songs fairly straight-forward and the judges complained; not original enough!! I DO NOT GET IT!!! How am I supposed to judge when the judges have ME confused? Has anyone else noticed this? After Idol, we watched Criminal Minds. Drew says it is fakey, but I think it is great! Another good night of TV for me. Oh I for got to mention The Middle and Modern Family; LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!
As far as barn news went today Dr. M had GREAT rides today on her horses, with show bridles no less. Sherrill and Mary E were not to be outdone and also had great rides. We are ready for the show season. All we have to do now is wait for the first show. I have my entries in, thanks to Joanne and one freezing afternoon at the computer for me. Tomorrow is Thursday. I must remember that and here is why. At dinner tonight Jason asked me “Mom, do you know what day it is?” I told him it was March 3rd. He then said, “No, what DAY it is today!” I said, “Wednesday, of course.” Jason then asked me if I knew what tomorrow was. I told him of course I did, it will be Thursday. He said “REMEMBER THAT TOMORROW because last week you forgot it was my day off and you woke me up and made come to work. “OOPS! DID I DO THAT?” I said in my best Urkle voice. Note to self: NOT to wake Jason up. DO NOT WAKE JASON UP!!!
You will never guess what just happened…………………………………………………………………………………………….. I just got HOT right now!! OMG what is up with my internal climate control? It must be wearing out because I am sooooo old!!
I hope my body can keep a steady, normal body temperature.
I hope our horses and riders keep working as well as they have been.
I wish I did not like sugar —NO, CRAVE SUGAR!!
I am THANKFUL I live in BEAUTIFUL DOWNTOWN Hardwick NJ, which by the way is not a hot spot for terrorists or earthquakes!
FYI: Hardwick has no downtown and for that fact it is so small we have to share Blairstown’s post office. Hardwick is not even big enough to have our own zip code. It is still heaven to me.
