Because it's already hot outside

Oh friends, it's hot.

I feel the Texas heat waves a comin'. This year I've already had the A/C on at least twice and I'm doing everything in my power to hold back turning them on. A good rule of thumb: If you break out in a sweat putting make-up on, it's time to turn on the A/C.

Which reminds me I need to have a ceiling fan installed in one room of our house that is still fanless.

So today I am heading out to Home Depot for a fan. I'm going to walk straight pass the hot dog stand out front that makes me gag , pass the paint section that boy has banned me from because he claims he ends up having to finish my great ideas and straight to the ceiling fans to find the least obtrusive looking fan. I know they are not the most appealing to the decor, but key for survival. I remember years ago watching "Trading Spaces" when the designers would remove the ceiling fans because they looked horrendous. Oh, how could they? I would sit there and scream, crying for them to please have some mercy on this sweet family. Because not having a fan in a Southern state is like having a big bowl of tortilla chips with no queso to go with it. It's just down right mean.

And I do realize that my timing it so inappropriate because here it is Earth Day and I'm posting about ways to waste energy. Oh, this is so wrong, but we need air somehow so I'm thinking I need to find a great Eco-friendly fan that will allow me to cut back on my A/C addiction. I will report back with my findings.

I don't know how anyone could survive without a fan in their room... I always have mine on. Always.

I don't know how you survive without a fan either! I couldn't make it ... I have the ceiling fan plus a small fan by my bed. Will be needing both this summer for sure being preggers! Oh i'm not looking forward to the hot months!

We have fans in every room, It keeps your a/c bill down so that is saving.....

Being from south florida, I sympathize completely. We are enjoying what I believe will be our last few days of breezy 'nice' weather until next November.

What I'd like to know is how does your pug handle the hot weather?

I used to think the same thing when Trading Spaces would be all "the first thing we'll do is definately remove that repulsive fan." Oh no. Terrible idea if they're anywhere NEAR Texas!
