Heat or no, one of my best runs ever. Why am I showing you this? Because it makes me excited. Take that heat!
In April we paid off my SUV. Woohoo! Now Patrick wants to buy a new SUV. First off, I feel like I need to clarify that the car payments don't bother us (just our opinion . . . not saying it's wrong if you disagree . . . yes I know, cars depreciate when you drive them off the lot, etc., etc.). I mean it's not like we love them, but we can afford them (and no we're not draining our savings to get a car). I totally get and respect those people that don't want/believe in car payments (like I said this is just our opinion), but we're not those people. Plus my car is worth quite a bit, and we have money to put down so we wouldn't be financing a whole lot. I figured we couldn't hold out too long without getting something new. Patrick doesn't really like (actually he hates) the Traverse. So we'll see. The thing is I hate car shopping. It's tedious and boring and tedious and boring and . . . The other thing is we may have to go to Austin. Which means I may have to drive in Austin. I hate driving in Austin. It terrifies me. I know, I'm 31 and I'm terrified of driving in Austin. I have issues. I'm well aware. By the way, Austin is the only city in America that does this to me (of course I've never had the opportunity to drive in most of the major cities in America, but you get my point). Generally speaking, I think half of Texas needs to take (or retake) driver's ed. So yeah, we'll see if anything comes of this.
Back to the weather. I always laugh when people complain about the heat in Texas in the summer. I mean it's summer in Texas. It's not like it's normally 70 and sunny, but y'all 108! Really!?! That's worthy of complaining about. And of course, air conditioners wait until it's unbelievably hot to break. Our compressor on our fan went out a few weeks ago, but thankfully, that was pre-one million degree temps. Anyway, I think the worst is over . . . for a few days anyway.
Look nothing above 99 and a chance of rain . . . glorious . . .
I was really excited thinking we are going to the mountains in the near future, and it's going to be cooler, but yesterday it was close to 100 in Gatlinburg. Normally, the high is in the 80s. What is this about? Hopefully, it will be cooler up in the mountains, and maybe by the time we go this crazy heatwave will have passed.
I got new glasses. Sorry about the picture . . . bad quality and no make-up. But the glasses are super cute (also they're not tinted . . .they only look that way in pictures). I only look good with heavy dark frames . . . why? Because I'm a nerd. ;)
They're bothering me though. I have to get used to them because they hurt my head behind my ears. So no contacts for a while until I get used to the glasses. Oh and did you notice I can finally pull my hair back in a ponytail again? Next time I want to cut my hair off, would someone please remind me that I won't be able to pull it back if I cut it off? I'll still cut it, but at least you'll have warned me.
