No, but these poor guys did. Stay strong, Troops!
Considering that a lot of my work involves being outside - running outside - walking outside - and taking dogs to potty outside... the heat index has not been my friend. Even the most rambunctious dogs I keep for daycare are eyeing at me with a serious look of "yeah right" when I grab leashes and expect them to get up off of the cool floor.
Lady, it was 90 degrees when I got here at 8am - that afternoon walk ain't happenin'.
I tried to take the kids to the pool yesterday, because it's too hot to go outside, and too torturous to spend even another second in this house together. After suffering for an hour and a half, I had to pack up and leave. The pool felt like a warm bath. Not refreshing in 115 degree temps, but thanks for trying.
This is not what we use for pools in Arkansas -
just to clear that up
Back home for more TV and video games. Yeah. I did just say that.
I don't remember ever being "too hot" to play outside when I was a kid, but this seems to be a common phrase spoken around here lately. Are our kids turning into pansies or what? I mean, it's bad when you use outside time as a THREAT to get your kids to stop fighting.
"If anyone yells again, you HAVE to go outside to play!"
