I am smokin HOT!

I'm smokin Hot!...But Clearly not in the sense you might be thinking. It's been a hot humid 89 degrees today, my Tahoe over heated, put a fork in me I'm done! (I don't think I have a dry thread on me!) I look like I've been walking across the Sonora Desert all day.

Everyday with my car over heating my only choices are;

1.Pull over on the side of the road (with three kids!), while the water in my car boils over, and wait 45 minutes for it to cool down to add more water. Not to mention having to deal with all the men that feel the need to stop, and help this poor damsel in Distress.(In which, Jason would never let me drive, if he knew!)
2.Drive with the heat on High to keep the temperature down, and baby it every where I need to go.At the same time suffocating myself in the front with all the heat! ...
Which is the option I always choose!

What a horrible ride that is...
I look pretty ridiculous driving with my arms out trying to get a cross breeze through my blouse, with sweat dripping down me. Having all the windows down helps the kids in the back seat but does nothing for me. It's all I can do to drive constantly switching my feet away from the burning air.(And still each morning I put on flip flops!!). Mady complains the whole ride about the burning smell in the car. (which she refuses to believe is my skin!)

Today, I stopped and got the kids ice cream dots to keep them cool . Which would have been a great idea had I not forgot the spoons!!Yes, with no where to get any, you imagine what a sticky finger mess that was! (At least we had wipes with us), I myself restrained from the urge and settled for a cold bottle of water. So occupied driving through traffic, I reached to quench my thirst and got a nice big swig of, Hot Water! I even burned my lips from the melted top of the bottle! (That I Had Left Sitting In Front Of The Air Vent!!). Yep good times!

At least I can look at it in a few positive ways.
Knowing my makeup will be melted off and my hair with be flat.
I don't have to spend as much time primping in the mornings.
I've learned a lot about what goes on under the hood of my car, And what to do!

I don't have to worry about getting any speeding tickets, because I can't drive fast.

I now know the brand of my deodorant works wonders, to sweat that much and not stink!

I have a new found appreciation for Air Conditioning. (the greatest thing, since sliced bread!)

I'm beginning to get a good air tan going on.

All & All, I guess I shouldn't complain.


  1. OMG... I have no idea where you live, but I would just refuse to go anywhere!!! At leaset you're a positive thinker :)

  2. Came accross your blog the other day and just wanted to say I love your blog!

  3. Sorry to hear about your trouble.
    I would love to know the name of this deoderant. Sweat and smell are an issue for me! Hormonal changes after children stink, literally!
    Saw your blog on a SITS comment and came by. Cute background!

  4. Ouch! I totally felt that hot water all the way here in India!!
    Hey, could you tell me what brand of deodorant you use, I could do with a tip. Where I live, sweating it out is a way of life, throughout the year!

    Hope you guys still get to have fun.

  5. Come and live in the Seattle area...It has only been about 60 for a day or so and we have rain or showers or clouds every day but it's not hot or humid....We are all waiting for summer here....Someday it will come!

  6. See? There is a silver lining to every cloud. And, maybe you'll even lose a little water weight and clean out your pores? Heck, maybe I need to drive with the heater on...

  7. Bless you heart. It ws 92 here in the south. My car also has an adversion to running in the heat. Use air conditioner, you say Not with a car that is alreadyruning hot. So windows down, sitting it traffic with my grandsons in the back seat, we melted to the seats. Lucky for me there is McDonalds two blocks from their school. Super-sdized un-sweetened tea is my constant companion now.

  8. No air conditioning and three kids in the car on a hot summer day........ugh! That sucks! I think Jason needs to get that fixed pronto. We haven't turned our air on in the house yet though. My husband says it's not hot enough yet but I think today might be the's supposed to be in the 90's today.

  9. For those asking;
    I too have had the hormonal issues and sweating in the past.
    I use Secret invisible solid & after my car rides it's proven effective ;)

    There's even a guarantee sticker with a phone number on the front. Imagine that!

  10. I think you've earned the right to complain. Complain on...I'll listen

  11. Hey thanks for visiting my blog...Right now I'm in my own puddle of sweat and it's only's not hot..just extreamly muggy, and I just finished mopping the floor...ugh...drip drip drip...

  12. I'll have to come back & read but I have to tell you!!! I nearly hyperventilated wehn I saw you name on the BUZZZ!! YIPPEE!!!! Big problem though....nothing's on your page...nothing but pink. C'mon, fix it quick so I can add you to my friends list & rate you 8s all the way. You're gonna love it! They're gonna LOVE you!!!

  13. Oh, that Secret does not work for me! I never used to sweat or stink, now after 3 babies - nothing works!!!!

  14. I totally know what you mean. For the last five years, I've either lived in Texas or Louisians, and up until a couple of months ago, I drove a dark gray car with no air conditioning. You definitely learn to appreciate the cooler things in life.

  15. okay hey blogalicious/stacis heart here, thanks for the comment on our design, but seriously have you SEEN your blog?? A make over?? Your blog is amazing......i mean shooot im not opposed...but I LOVE this....too cute!!! ill be back for sure!!

  16. I am truly amazed you leave the house when it's hot out!

  17. Been there done that and it freaking sucks! TG we have a new car now so I don't have to do that. Taking it in anytime soon to see what's wrong with it?

  18. That does not sound fun. :/ I'm parched just reading this!

  19. Oh Johnina, please get in the piece of crap car of yours and come here for the summer. Let your husband pick potatoes and clean out the litter box. You can stay here all summer, please?


Girls could you PLEASE give our guest some space. Take your brother and go play. Sorry,it's hectic here, what were you saying?"...
