How can anybody function when it's this hot? I haven't accomplished anything today. I keep watching the 5-day forecast and it keeps getting hotter. I put a double layer of bedsheets across the front window and I don't know if it helped to keep the place cooler or not. And I ate too much today, too, so that makes me feel doubly icky.

So now it's almost 6:30 and I'm starting the whole "shoot, I haven't accomplished anything" thoughts that I usually think on Sundays. Oy.

We did accomplish something, though. We went to the South Valley Kennels to check the place out and see if we liked it. We didn't. They're kept in their little kennels (well, they have maybe a 10x10 fenced area each) for their entire stay. The guy who came out to talk to us mentioned a monthly rate - I can't imagine poor dogs staying there for a whole month! In the end we decided an extra $20 for Corvallis Kennels wouldn't be too much more to pay for Remmy to get some attention during her ten days away from home.

Cory did some studying at Starbucks this afternoon while I stayed home to watch Bride & Prejudice, a Bollywood-ish movie based on the Jane Austin novel of similar name.

I know what you mean about the heat. I've been sleeping with one of those freezable little blue ice blocks (the kind you use to keep lunch coolers cool). I have to have it behind my neck and a fan on or I cannot sleep at all. We're driving to Las Vegas this weekend and I am going to die. I am such a weather wimp.
I'm glad to hear that you've found a good kennel. It'd be too hard to have a nice relaxing vacation if you're worrying about Remmy the entire time.

I was in Vegas in mid-July a couple of years ago, and it was so hot (we were passing through at about 2pm) that we drove through the strip one way, stopped at Starbucks, switched drivers so the other person could see better, and drove back through. With the ac on high. It was too much for us too. :)

I know what you mean!
For some insane reason, we have fallen into an annual tradition of road tripping it to Vegas in August! We've done it for the last three years now.
We also drove down for spring break in March- I much prefer that to the insane heat!

I agree with the March thing. If I had to do my honeymoon drive again (we went in a loop around Utah, basically: Here - Washington - Idaho - Montana - Colorado - Wyoming - New Mexico - Arizona - California - Here) I'd go in the wintertime or springtime. When we went to Texas for Christmas, we really enjoyed the weather - it was perfect.
