Thank you ladies, you're all so sweet!

Midnight, I grew up in SoCal, so I guess that's what I know.  Smiley  I did live in TX before for 5 years, and believe me I am not looking forward to the weather there.  At least here when it's hot it's mostly dry.  The humidity combined with the heat out there is miserable!  IMHO, anyone who doesn't think a dry heat is different than a humid heat hasn't lived with both!   Grin

I agree with you completely.  I grew up in central ILL, which shares St. Louis' heat and humidity, and I have been in Phoenix in July, so I know the difference.  In Chicago, it's always too cold and humid or too hot and humid.  I'm talking about temps in the high 90s with humidity in the high 90s, too.  Talk about miserable.  Yuck!!

That's my experience too.  I could handle the dry hot heat in the San Joaquin valley, CA but just a bit over 70F and humid here is absolutely miserable.  This has been confirmed by guests from AZ and San Joaquin Valley in CA who thought they were going to pass out when it was 72F and humid here one Spring a few years ago.

Humidity does make the heat quite uncomfortable...but extreme arrid conditions are no picnic either. Texas has both. Tongue

Yes, the bloody noses and dried out skin, lips and hair are no fun either!  I went through that when my family moved to the hi-desert when I was in high school.  I suppose I adjusted to it though, and find it more difficult to cope with a humid heat. 

There were fireworks last night at one of the colleges up the street from us.  This was my cat's first July 4th and he was not a happy camper!  He's not the type to be fearful but he definitely did not know what to make of all the noise.  We opened up one of the windows for him (he only likes to sit in them when it's open and can smell all the happenings through the screen) and he could see the fireworks through the trees.  I really think he calmed down after that.  He's a most unusual cat.

Whoa, that's one brave cat to go to the window and actually look at what was going on. Shocked

And yeah, that's SoCal alright. Dry, hot, dry...and hot. Tongue Though it's been rather humid for the past couple of days.

My mood:  Angry

Well, we were supposed to have our friends over today and they bailed on us.  It's a bunch of stupid drama.  They're having relationship issues and are in marriage counseling.  So my husband talks to "Joe" and gets information and Joe tells him not to tell me and I talk to "Jane" and get info and she tells me not to tell my husband.  The whole thing is just ridiculous.  I'm trying as hard as I can to just support her and try to get her out of the house and doing something without knowing anything about what the issue is between her and her husband.  I am not getting involved.  Argh!  Part of me wants to just drive over to her house and drag her butt out of the house.  I know she is sitting over there moping and sleeping and that's just about the worst thing you can do when you're depressed.  

*sigh*  It is even more difficult for me because we're leaving in just a few weeks now, and I'm afraid I won't see her again before we leave.    Undecided


Hair: It's at that awkward length where it covers my neck and makes me hot, but it's not long enough to even get into a pony tail.  Even if I pin back the top and put the back in a band, pieces still fall out on my neck.  Bleh.

I washed my hair today with Neutrogena clarifying shampoo.  My hair *really* needed it, and I had run out.  Since we are moving in less than a week, I had been putting off buying more.  But the last few days were driving me crazy.  I could feel the build up on the top of my head when I would shampoo...it would feel like my hair wasn't really getting wet.  So I bought some and used it this morning and it was such a relief.  My hair is light and soft again.  It even tangles less.  I still like the Pantene a lot, but I think it does cause more build up on my hair.  I just need to clarify on a more regular basis.  I still haven't tried the vinegar rinse.  I'll have to get some apple cider vinegar once we're settled and give it a try.  

Other: When my hair is long and I pull it into a pony tail, I get this fringe of hair at my temples from my ears up through the "corner" of my hairline that sticks straight out and it never grows past a couple inches.  My friend in high school called it my devil horns.  I hate that hair.  *humph*  Well, I had this pair of sunglasses that were a men's athletic style and they had a little rubber nub on the earpiece that would pull at that hair above my ears every time I took them off.  That hair is fine and frizzy enough as it is and I don't need something to pull it out and shred it further.  So I went sunglasses shopping today and got a nice new pair.

Well, we're all relocated to Texas.  It took us three days to drive here.  I had our cat in my car.  That was fun!  The movers came with our stuff yesterday so the apartment is a huge mess now.  I'm just taking it one box at a time. 

We went and bought a really nice bed since we have two bedrooms now, and our old queen mattress is in the second bedroom as a guest room.  This morning I woke up and realized the cat had peed on my feet and it was all over our brand new mattress, sheets and coverlet!  OOOOOHHHHH I was burning mad!  He has never done anything like that before.  I can only assume he was upset over all the changes and was letting me know.  I sprayed a solution that is meant to neutralize cat urine all over the area and blotted it as best I could with a shammy.  It's drying now, and so far I can smell the fragrance of the solution, but no urine smell.  Hopefully it works.

Congrats on your new place! Cheesy

Traveling with cat's is not fun at all.  I couldn't imagine 3 days of it.  Although, some cats do travel better than others.  Mine are horrible.  Even taking them to the vet requires lots of patience Tongue

I would've been mad too!  Yeah, it was most likely the confusing changes that provoked that.

Trying to stay up late tonight to catch the annual meteor shower.  I'm going to walk outside now and see if I can spot any.  It's way past my bedtime and I'm soooo tired!  But I had to try.  I always felt like this meteor shower was special because it occurs around my birthday each year and I always miss it!

Well, I didn't see any meteors meteorites shooting stars.  There is way too much light pollution here we live a stones throw away from Six Flags, the ballpark and the new Cowboy's football stadium) and the sky was too bright to see anything more than the moon and a handful of the brightest stars. Someday I would like to plan a trip out of the city and be able to watch it when the sky is devoid of artificial light.  

I did take a nice walk though on the golf course that is behind our apartment.  We're not supposed to go on the property, but I figured since it was 1:00am no one would notice me or care as long as I stayed on the cart path.  It's really amazing what noises you hear when the human world is quiet.  I heard cicadas, crickets, frogs, and some mystery sound.  It was a fast clacking noise.  Like furious castanets echoing from a long distance.

My husband kept getting up out of bed and wondering outside to spot the shower too, but he didn't see it either.

I couldn't even imagine seeing something like that.  We also have an issue with too much artificial light. Tongue

Sounds like a neat experience! Cheesy  I love the quietness and sounds of nature at night.  It's so peaceful.

I live in the countryside.  I take these things for granted; that if the skies are clear enough I'll be able to see stars, moon, etc.  When hub and I were still dating and he lived in the Capital we kept talking about how when we moved out to the country, we'd go for long walks in the evening, especially in the winter and look at stars.  Then I became pregnant. Grin  I think we went on one of those walks while I was pregnant.  Luckily I just have to look out of my window or walk out onto the lawn.  *ough!*  I'm being really bad at hi-jacking others journals.  Apologies!
