It's strange to me how seemingly nutty people get here in Pittsburgh during the summer about barbecues, going to the pool, and other outdoor stuff.
Then I realize, I'm probably the one who seems nutty because I forget that grilling out in February or swimming in October in Pittsburgh isn't the same as Arizona. Nothing HAD to be done in the summer because the weather was cooperative year 'round.
The one thing I CANNOT stand about Pittsburgh versus Arizona is the humidity.
This past week has been horrible. It's been in the 90s with humidity and the heat index out of control. Not truly a big deal if every place was air conditioned. However,
We got an a/c unit for our livingroom this week. PRAISE GOD!
In my 34th week of pregnancy, 90+ degree temperatures and humidity, I was melting. (I'm Glinda, good witch, so not THAT kind of melting.)
G and I have spent a lot of late nights this week talking about the baby coming and the future. ♥
A lives with us all the time and R lives with us half the time. They both spend time with their other parents to varying degrees. The past 10 days, R (whose mom lives locally) has been with us for one of our extended times with her. Normally, she's here half the week then back to her mom's for half the week. A goes to visit his dad (who lives out of state) for extended periods in the summer.
G and I realized that we are about to have some upcoming time WITH NO KIDS!!
When we were talking about it, we laughed as we said, "This will be our last kid-free time for the next 20 years unless we choose". That's the "his, mine and ours" scenario of our kids coming into play. Mine goes sometimes, his goes sometimes, but ours is with us all the time when she arrives. :)
We've laughed a lot, talked about plans for the long term future, and made plans for our short-term future when we have no kids next week.
We're looking forward to our last time alone before Lily arrives, finishing up the nursery, having another ultrasound, enjoying each other, going on dates, cooler weather and getting some important items checked off our list. ♥
