Now in all fairness my mother had no tolerance for the heat and I assume I've inherited that post-menopausal attribute of hers. But this has also been one of the hottest years ever. Everyone is sweating.
This past week right before the holiday I was working in the house and the sweat was pouring down my face to the point where I had to take regular breaks to grab a paper towel and wipe myself down. It's hard to get things done when salty water is dripping into your eyes! So I've decided that I want to go back to a 9 to 5 job. I remember very well how much I looked forward to getting to work every day during the summer, where the air conditioning cooled the air and made sweaters a necessary part of my summer wardrobe. I miss that.
So I think I'm going to keep my ears open. Perhaps someone out who has a nice air conditioned office would like a middle-aged woman to work for them. I promise I'll never go out on maternity leave!
