The yard needs mowed. The garage needs cleaned. But all I seem to do is come home, take a wicked-cold shower, drink a few swimming pools worth of water, and play on the floor with the kids. Okay, this is actually how I'd like to end every day but sooner or later the grass has to be cut. Maybe tomorrow, or a few tomorrows after that.
This past Saturday I did something a little selfish. I went with a group from church to do some work on a house for Habitat for Humanity. It's selfish because I learned long ago that helping others makes you feel good. (or it should. if it doesn't you might consider a self evaluation...i'm just saying.) So here were all these inside office types grabbing hammers and lumber in some oven hot heat to help someone they didn't know. It was just an awesome thing to take part in.
I think just about everyone was on the verge of having a heat stroke, but I didn't hear a complaint one. The site foreman had to tell them to quit working....just a great group of people.
So...have a great week folks. If you're taking part in this heat wave remember to partake in some water at regular intervals. (And wish me luck with those boots!)
