Summer is getting close and that means hot, humid days are in my future. Yuck!! I grew up in Texas, and while it gets hot there, it just wasn't humid (I lived in the panhandle). Heat I can handle--humidity I can not!! Then there is the fact that before moving to this area I lived in northern CA and it typically doesn't get hot there. We vacationed there 3 years ago this summer and when it got up to 70 degrees, we had someone ask us if we were enjoying the heat!! I seriously thought they were kidding....then they realized that 70s was a break from the heat for us...especially considering we were there in August!!
Another thing in my future is a boy looking a bit goofy from the swelling he gets from mosquito bites. We sat outside for a few minutes the other night and when I felt myself getting a bite, I said it was time to go in. I noticed he got a bite and cringed. The next morning it was swollen, but not like it has in years past. I also noticed a second bite in his hairline. However, this morning he wasn't so lucky. The swelling has spread down into his eyelid and even the side of his head. Last year he got a bite just walking out to get in the van---the poor boy doesn't even have to be playing outside!! And, let's not talk about the pesky little things that sneak in the house when we go in or out of the house.
So, while most are out more in the summer, we seem to stay inside to avoid the mass amounts of mosquitoes that this lovely humid weather brings us!! Yep---I'd have to say I'm not a very big fan of summer!!
