Default Dear Diary- Moving South

Moving south

Dear Diary:

May 30th:
Just moved to Tupelo, Mississippi from up North. Now this is a city that knows how to live!!

Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. What a place! Watched the sunset from a party on a blanket.
It was beautiful.
I've finally found my home. I love it here.

June 14th:
Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not a problem.
Live in an
air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car.
What a pleasure to
see the sun everyday like this. I'm turning into a sun worshipper.

June 30th:
We had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots of cactus and rocks! What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing lawn.
Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

July 10th:
The temperature hasn't been below 100 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least it'* kind of windy though. But getting used to the heat and humidity is taking longer that I expected.

July 15th:
Fell asleep by the pool. (Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body.) I missed 3 days of work - what a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though. Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.

July 20th:
I missed Morgan (our cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning. By the time I got to the hot car for lunch, Morgan had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stank up the $2,000 leather upholstery. I told the kids that she ran away. The car now smells like

Kibbles and s_its. I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat.

July 25th:
The wind sucks. It feels like a giant freaking blow dryer!! And it'* hot as heck. The home air-conditioner is on the fritz and the AC repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to order parts.

July 30th:
Been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now.
$1,500 in @#%&*!
house payments and we can't even go inside. Why did I ever come here?

August 4th:
It'* 105 degrees. Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today. It cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 85, but this freaking humidity makes the house feel like it'* about 95. Stupid repairman peed in my pool! I hate this stupid city.

August 8th:
If another wise guy cracks, "Hot enough for you today? I'm going to strangle

him. Dad gum heat! By the time I get to work the radiator is boiling

over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell like baked cat!!

August 9th:
Tried to run some errands after work. Wore shorts and sat on the black leather seats

in the old car. I thought my butt was on fire. I lost two layers of flesh and all the hair

on the back of my legs and rear-end. Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried butt, and baked cat.

August 10th:
The weather report might as well be a @$#%*!
recording. Hot and sunny. Hot
and sunny. Hot and sunny. It'* been too hot to do anything for 2 darn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week.
Doesn't it ever rain in this God-forsaken desert??
Water rationing will be
next, so might as well watch $1700 worth of cactus just dry up and blow into the darn pool.
Even the cactus can't live in this heat.

August 15th:
Welcome to ----!!! Temperature got to 106 today.
Forgot to crack the
window and blew the windshield out of the car. The installer came to fix it and said, "Hot enough for you today?" My husband had to spend the $1500 house payment to bail me out of jail. Freaking South. What kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here??

Yeah, I hear AZ gets pretty hot.
But, what is it they say
"it'* a dry heat"

What the h*ll does that mean anyway? I guess a Northern Boy like me will never get it.

It means a BAD day of humidity is anything over 10%

We have humidity here so think some times you can feel it if you swing your arm. That'* fun.
Yeah, the snow one describes how I feel every winter. First snow is pretty, by March it is

ive felt this way numerous times.

surprisingly, it hasnt gotten that hot so far this year. mid-90'*. the torrential rains have mellowed this summer.

next week promises to heat up though.
