The Heat has Gotten to Me!!

Saturday, July 20, 2013

The heat wave we have had for it seems like forever has finally gotten to me-and my cat I might add-I can barely manage to keep my eyes open, and my brain feels like I am in a fog. I have no idea how I made it to clients this past week and kept up with posting-well more or less anyway. And somehow today I have to take my Mom shopping---this should be interesting---at least we will be going to the OutBack for Lunch since I really have not eaten anything much for about 3 days--yeah it's that hot. As a diabetic that is also kind of dangerous!!

One of my friends told me that diabetics dehydrate quicker--he was right. What he didn't tell me is that as you dehydrate your blood sugar goes higher (even if you haven't eaten!!) And just like when I originally had heat stroke-it seems almost impossible to rehydrate myself--I am drinking gallons of water a day--

As any blogger who does book reviews will tell you--for some reason all the books you agreed to review arrive at the same time--why this is-I don't know--all I know is I have about 8 books to read and review--HELP. Yes, I know I am a fast reader--but this heat has slowed my reading down I think. The thought of sitting here typing up reviews is not making me a happy camper at the moment. YES, I will get through this--but don't expect to see me on line too much for a couple of days-I'll be reading, reading, writing, writing--and I think I have some giveaways coming up soon which I have to prepare.

Poor Baby (my Cat), she just lies around not moving--unless I get up and leave the bedroom (where the a/c is and the fan-not that they help much)--she then follows me and plops down half in and half out of the bathroom (which is opposite my bedroom door) and watches me to make sure I am not leaving the house! The last time I walked back in here she actually started to close the door after me!!

Well--it is supposed to rain today-thunderstorm actually--and is supposed to cool off a bit--I'll believe it when I feel it!!

Sorry to hear that the heat has gotten to you. We're having a heatwave here too (Ontario). Hit over 100 last week.

What is it with review items showing up all at the same time?

Just stopping by for your giveaway linky.

Oh wow I am also not happy with all this heat. All that rain then heat, heat and more heat. Then more rain. I sure wonder if my garden will survive. I do hope you get all your books read. I will be on the look out for your reviews.

I hope you get some rain and it cools down today MikiHope. It is hot here in Jamaica but luckily in my area it has been quite windy. Wow! You certainly have a lot of books to read and review. Enjoy! Keep well and have a good Sunday and week.

I didn't know that diabetics dehydrate faster. Take care of yourself... praying it cools down for you.

Wishing you a lovely day.

I am with you with the heat. I don't do very well without air conditioning. You know it is bad when your cat doesn't do anything. Be careful with your blood sugar and drink lots of water.
