Here we are at 39 weeks and three days, still waiting. It’s going to be 38 degrees today and I’ve been trying to come up with creative ways of keeping cool at home (we don’t have an air-conditioner). I’ve thought about putting a wet towel over the fan, and sticking my feet in a bucket of water, but that’s about it. Of course, drinking lots of ice water should also be part of the plan.
There was also the option of going to the local library to sit in their air-conditioning. Or the shopping centre, but that would involve a lot more walking rather than sitting. And I wasn’t sure that I wanted to get into the hot car to drive somewhere.
One of my neighbour friends messaged me this morning to invite me out to the movies, which was something we had talked about earlier in the week as a way of escaping today’s heat. So at least half the day I’ll be somewhere cool.
We’re going to see “How to be Single”, which is a comedy that has come out recently. Hopefully the endorphins from laughing will do some good for my waiting!
