with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
It’s hot where I live. “How hot is it?” the crowd asks. It’s been 38C/98F which a whole lot hotter than any human being (without air conditioning) should be subjected to. We are spending our days at the lake/in the pool in an attempt to keep ourselves from melting into a puddle of goo.
While looking for a relationship topic to cover for todays post, I came across an article on MSN.com titled, “Hot Weather Couple Meltdowns.” Considering that I spent the bulk of my afternoon working in a tank top and my underwear while sitting in front of a swamp cooler (I am nothing if not classy), the title of the article pulled me in.
As I mentioned above, we do not have air conditioning (*shakes fist at the sky*) and the next few points didn’t seem to apply to me either. We have a fridge that has water in the door! And that makes ice!
We also don’t battle over wandering eyes (Heck, even I can admire a hot woman…and a hot man). Looking and touching are two different things.
It was the last point that had me nodding in agreement. When it comes to, ahem, relations with my husband the heat wave can put a damper on the desire to be within five feet of each other. I cold shower before bed (and a ceiling fan on above) help make everything so that we can at least stand to be in the same room together. And maybe even you know.
How about you? What tricks do you use to stay cool in the summer heat?
