Record-breaking. Currently, at 11:20 PM, it’s 83 degrees outside. Earlier today, it was 103. Tomorrow, 105 degrees possible. Somebody please tell May that it’s freaking May, and not August, for God’s sake.
I am an idiot. When I left on Friday, it was comfortable and cool in here. I knew it was going to heat up while I was gone. I knew this. So why didn’t I turn my AC on low and just leave it? Nah, I forgot. So when I got home late this afternoon, my apartment was 78 degrees.
I’m well aware that the “save energy” commercials advise us to set our AC thermostats to 78 degrees anyway, during the hot weather times. To this advice, I say go @#$% yourself. John is the most environmental person I know, and even he cranks the AC down to 70. His place was deliciously cool all weekend; I hated to leave.
Of course I turned my AC on right away, but the damage was done; the heat was baked in. It’s been running for six hours now, and it’s only cooled the place down to 75.
I’m going to leave it running all night. It is quite crucial for it to cool off in here. Because tomorrow morning, Mr. D will arrive at 10 (well, 10 on Mr. D time, which means anywhere from 10 to 10:30). And then things will really heat up. 😀
I can’t wait. Hope everyone had a nice weekend.
