The Long Dry Spell

In the title, I could be referring to the weather... it has been dry for the past two weeks, and it has suddenly gotten very hot and humid. 90s all weekend and no relief in sight.

But I am not talking about the weather. I am referring to the fact that I have nothing at all to say on my blog today.

I could mention that my Mother-In-Law has just embarked upon a wonderful Templar Pilgramage from Spain to Scotland. I believe one of the stops she will be making is at the Templar Church mentioned in the Da Vinci Code (the Rosslyn Chapel). It sounds like a fabulous trip! I am totally jealous!

Or, I could mention that I worked late last night, til eight o'clock, because Rt. 7 was closed down due to a large truck carrying an air conditioner bringing down some electrical wires. Might as well work in the office than spend four hours in the car.

Or, I could mention that when I got home, the boys had been to McDonalds to eat, and Luke had gotten a stuffed monkey in his happy meal, and when I came home, he was in bed, but not yet asleep, and asked me, "Dad, do you want to see where I keep my monkey?" No thanks, Luke. Go to sleep.

Or, I could mention that it is now so hot, we are sleeping on top of the sheets and sweating the moment we get out of bed in the morning. And the air conditioner at my office was broken yesterday, so I was almost reduced to sitting at my desk in my boxer shorts. My wife, who is from Wisconsin, can't bear the heat and is complaining endlessly about it, which makes the summer heat even more tedious.

Or, I could mention that my brothers-in-law have just received residency in Canada, which is a big step for them, since they are living in Toronto. They are very happy.

But I won't mention any of that. It's too hot.
