Frying Eggs On The Side Walk
Thursday, June 09, 2011
It continues to be unseasonably, miserably hot here. Every day is centered around sweating.
Yesterday I got my car back so my son and I went to the Metro East area of St.Louis and celebrated his birthday early as he had to work today on his birthday. We went to eat at Casa Gallardo and I had a shredded beef taco, shredded beef enchilada, refried beans, Mexican rice, and a corn cake. We later had a Chocolate Oreo Volcano cone at Culver's. We went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond where I bought a bottle brush and to Sears where I bought an electric egg cooker. Then we went to Petsmart where I got lots of chinchillas food and supplies, and finally to Sam's where I purchased some motor oil and food.
We came home and discovered our big air conditioner wasn't working well. We put the stuff away and I did my daily chores while my son went to taekwondo. When he got home at 7:30 my husband and son put in our new air conditioner and it took until almost 10 with the 3 of use working on it. We were soaked and miserable and the chinchillas were hot as well.
Today was my son's birthday and he slept in. It took me a long time to catch up on indoor and outdoor chores plus I had to clean up from the mess last night. I did a load of laundry and had pizza, cake, and ice cream for lunch. My son went to work and I made some calls for my hubby and then I went to Autozone to get some parts for the van. It is having brake problems now and I had to give him my car back and drive the FX4. I returned the egg cooker as it was broken and bought a better one, a Cuisinart, at my favorite store here. Hubby worked on the van tonight and it's still not fixed. So I am out a car yet again!! Arrgghhh!! Can we ever get a break???? LOL.
At any rate the air conditioning is very nice.
