I have a really hard time with summer. Don't get me wrong... I Love summer; just summer doesn't love me back. When it gets into the triple digits like its now my body feels like I am walking around inside a marshmallow. Everything feels bloated and puffy. My knees especially are like two balloon attached to my legs. I drink so much water, easily 14 to 18 cups a day, I feel like a camel and sometimes I think that is the problem... too much water, but it's really not. In this heat my body really does need all that water. I can't do things I like outside between the heat and the bugs... I wait until late evening to water my plants and do yard work early, early mornings. Sometimes I wonder if my neighbors are gonna turn me in for noise or something that early. It sounds really like whining, but that is not my intention; I am just saying summer is difficult for me. We got about another month before it gets a bit better and as soon as the temps drop at night all the windows in this house will be open and we'll get going again. Summer is just not my body's thing any more. Why did I move to Texas ?!?
