I'm melting

I feel like the Wicked Witch of the West right after the bucket of water was thrown on her. We are slowly melting this week in this extreme heat, and it's been sort of a challenge to do...anything.

And to make things even more fun our car is in the shop leaving us stranded at home without air conditioning. Like I said. Melting.

So what are we doing to keep cool?

Drinking lots of water, lots of nice cool ice water
playing in the sprinkler
laying as still as we can under the fan while watching a movie
cutting back on the snuggle time (it's hard, but man are little children sweaty!)
cooking only in the crockpot or in the skillet, turning on the oven may just kill us
perfecting our fan placement for optimal airflow
playing with ice cubes (see yesterday's post)
painting with water (post to come tomorrow!)

Tomorrow we are supposed to reach the highest temps since 1995, what do you do to keep cool?
