So today is day 3 of no air conditioning. I was struck by the thought yesterday that cleaning your house while the AC doesn't work must be what it's like to go to one of those "hot yoga" classes. I have now decided I will never go to one. I have been out of town for about two and half weeks and needless to say my house needed some major cleaning. So off I go yesterday cleaning away (I am one of those cleaners where it becomes more like organizing and less like cleaning). Molly usually follows me everywhere I go when I clean. Well, I had fixed myself a beverage and chose to leave it in the refrigerator so that it wouldn't be hot ten minutes after I poured it. Every time I went to the refrigerator to take a sip (yes I know this wastes energy - unfortunately, I didn't care) Molly would plant herself on the floor so that she could feel the cold air coming out. When the door would shut she would look at me with such hate in her eyes. If only you could explain to a dog that you too would climb into the refrigerator if allowed (or if you could fit for that matter). So, I managed to do everything but vacuum (which needed to be done the most). I also realized that I have found the magic diet plan of the century. I never noticed this about myself but eating when you are hot and sweaty seems so much less appealing. I went to fix myself something for dinner and realized I just couldn't do it. I know I sound incredibly dramatic right now. If you could see my miserable dog (who over the summer had taken to practically sucking the air out of the vents in our house that's how close she would sit to them) you would know that I am at least less dramatic than her.

At any rate, Seth and I finally got to see The Dark Knight last night at the new Movie Tavern in Tucker. I LOVE that place. It's one of those where you can order food and drinks and they bring it to you at your seat (similar to Buckhead Backlots). We are boycotting the Regal on Shallowford due to their really fabulous security that had no problem letting multiple cars get broken into the last time we were there, one of which was ours. Conveniently the Movie Tavern opened soon after and we couldn't have been happier! Mind you, we tried to go there to see The Dark Knight two other times before actually seeing it because it was sold out, but it was worth the wait. If you haven't seen it it's a must!

Lastly, for our blogs avid readers (you know who you are), I will be out of town this weekend CAVING! Kim W., Sara, the Beans and myself will be camping and caving and I really cannot wait. We are going to Raccoon Mountain in Chattanooga. Don't worry though, there will be a new posting on Monday with pictures and everything. I know you will be waiting on pins and needles to read it! Seth and Levi also leave tomorrow for MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) camp for a week. If you have suggestions for what Seth's talent should be in this year's talent show please feel free to leave comments for him. One year he did the Tom Cruise scene from Risky Business....yea you know the one. On a serious note, if you get a minute say a little prayer for the guys and for the kids...they put a lot of time, energy, and love into this camp every year for some really great kids.

Have a wonderful weekend!
