First, I would like to appologize for our unexpected vacation. We didn't go anywhere or do anything, Mom just needed a break. It has been extremely hot here. Mom has seen the outside temperature up in the high 90's at night, so at mid-day, it has to have been in the 100's. We never realized how much of a difference our M-word would make to the temperature.
We are only about 10 miles away from where we were, but we used to be that much closer to the beach and got all the cooling evening breezes. We don't get them here, and we can really tell. And since we don't have air conditioning in the apartment yet, Mom has been coming home from work and just laying around. By the time it cools down a little bit, it is late, and Mom is drained. She is very much a winter type of person.
Anyway, we have been following Mom's example and resting as much as possible. We will be back visiting everyone too. And the even better news (for us) is that Mom's month long break from work starts in two weeks! We can't wait.
