it is really irksome the way the electric company manipulates our thermostat during the summer. they turn it up three or four degrees when it's really hot out. and at 112, it's really hot out. today we prepared for it and turned the temp down a bit more before they did it, so it's more like normal. it's still 84+ in here, and i really question whether doc is getting any sleep.
i woke up because i was too hot. his room is only slightly cooler than this room. he has a ceiling fan, though. that's got to help. i just go in the kitchen and have a smoke when i get too hot, it's the coolest room in the house. the cats are all in there on the tile surrounding the rug. correction, the dog and Major are laid out on my couch. And Teeny is wrapped up in the vertical blinds. the rest of the cats are on the tile.
i should try to go back to sleep. there is nothing for me to do. i did it all this morning. i even cleaned off the glass coffee table. the one i'm using right now. it is way too hot to have the laptop in my lap. we even have the back of it propped up with post-it notes (doc's genius idea) to keep the vent clear. any place else and the thing overheats. we have the other laptop, the one that stays on the desk and rarely gets used, on an egg crate on the desk to keep it cool.
will i sleep, or will i lay there for two hours? awake, in a half dream state . . . that doesn't sound appealing. i did that yesterday. that was awful. i curled up with the dog on the couch and left Castle on and listened to it. half awake, half asleep. ick. i got up more tired than when i lay down. and in a hideous mood. i don't want to be in that mood again.
