Trying to survive the Holiday

Many things come to mind when you think about our country’s Independence Day.

Picnics, family, friends, and fireworks.

This time also brings to mind the hot summer sun and humidity. I love seeing everyone and taking part in the festivities but I hate baking in the sun. I wish there was a way to enjoy everything from the comfort of my air conditioned condo. I would be okay with some sort of indoor pool party too. The hot humid days take a toll on me both emotionally and physically. I tend to be moody due to the heat and the humidity causes terrible headaches. I try to put on a happy face and make it through the day. I smile at everyone’s conversations, laugh as the kids run around, and try to stomach the hot dogs and potato salad. By the time the sun sets and the fireworks start all I can think about is heading home and diving into bed. I want the cool air from the HVAC system to rush over me. The safety and security of my home and my wonderful HVAC system gives me a kind of peace that I can’t find in any park or at any celebration. When I am home I never feel overwhelmed by temperature. Heat, humidity, or cold are never and issue so long as I am at home. Celebrating our Nation’s birthday is very important to me but maybe this year I will sit it out and watch the fireworks on TV. I can make my own burger, drink my wine, and get a comfortable night’s sleep.
