So I’ve been up at at ‘em since about 1PM (remember, I don’t sleep on the “normal” schedule and all attempts to put me on a “normal” schedule have failed miserably). It is now 3:56 AM and I am ready to crash out. The problem is, I just know if I lay down, I’m going to have my eyes wide open even though they’ll barely stay open right now.
I did some housework, fixed dinner, then did homework for school. Our new phone & internet were turned on today, but until we can find the splitter, we can’t hook it up. For some reason we only have one working phone jack in the house, and the cost of installing a new jack or having one fixed is way more than we’re willing to pay – and way more than a splitter would cost.
Another reason I’m so tired is it is so darned hot! It got to 93° F today (about 33.9° C for my non US friends) and frankly it is way too hot! We have an air conditioner, but it doesn’t work that well. We think the filter needs cleaned, but at the moment it appears to be frozen to the A/C unit and right now, we need whatever little bit of air it will throw out at us or we’ll roast to death in here.
I will say that dinner was nice – I made a taco salad recipe I’d made last month. I got the recipe through Pinterest, but the recipe is actually from Taste of Home. It’s pretty good and not your normal taco salad – as you mix ketchup, oregano, and chili powder with the hamburger instead of taco seasoning. It’s really good, we like it a lot.
Now I think I am going to just go to bed. It is 4:22 AM now, and I should be able to fall asleep. At least, I hope I can.
