At 8:30am this morning, I was standing in my bathroom, freshly showered, and sweating. So, so, SO WRONG in so many ways. It's not that it's really been unbearably hot lately. I live in a part of California that has pretty moderate, almost seasonless weather. But it has been on the warm side these past couple of weeks. Warm enough that I actually look forward to my day at work because of a tiny miracle called "air conditioning".

The problem is that when I get home, no amount of open windows and electric fans seems to be able to cool down my apartment. The other part of the problem is that I just kind of freak out when the temperature rises above 85 degrees. Well, not so much me, but my skin totally loses it. And once it's decided that it's not happy, it kind of stays that way. Even right now, while I'm the comfort of an airconditioned building, my eyelids are itchy. Thanks eczema!

At least our new apartment building has a pool. I don't even have to swim in it, just standing in the water seems to make a world of difference. Now, if only I could move the pool into the apartment...
