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.
