09:05 pm - The week crawls to an end
I don't have the daycare malaise- touch wood- which is a good thing because it's intestinal and unpleasant and its side-effects last for weeks, but I have a malaise. So even though last night was ativan sleep on cool cotton sheets with a warm blanket, I've been tired and achy all day and am yawning at 9 p.m. Shower and beanbags and the window fan on tonight, I fancy.

(Brought all the standing fans up from the basement against the forecast highs of 33 and lows of 20 the next four or five days. Am distinctly not ready for summer.)

Oh, definite sympathies! And solidarity on the fans - it makes such a huge difference to have some air movement, let alone if you can make it feel like a breeze on your face. (And depending on the humidity, and if it gets really hot, a breeze blowing through a light wet cloth can be a real cooler.)

Best of luck for the malaise sorting itself out quickly. :)

Dry heat is something we rarely get here, but will remember the wet cloth trick in case of need.

Trouble is, I still hate the sensation of moving air on my head when I sleep. This requires a few workarounds, like my lacy sleep balaclava.

Ohh the heat is being brutal this side of the world too! It feels like it could actually be hot enough to cook on any surface! There are breezes but not much and not often enough. The fans are all on, and on full blast.

On the bright side ... the laundry dries quick (even though you do have to get some exposure to the sunlight ... aaargghhh!!!) ^_^

Stay cool and hydrate! I get the most godawful headaches when I've not had enough fluids during the day. Especially when it's hot.

Have (or try anyway) to have a great weekend. - Love Zan

Our heat is nothing to your heat; our heat is a pleasant afternoon in LRD. The humidex of 40 however is another story.

Stay cool and hydrated and hope for wind.
