Sledgehammer

I spent the day at the pool with the kids.  We even brought a spare!  I sat under an umbrella, but there were times when I had to go in the water, it was so hot, and of course, that was in the sun. 

I am paying for it now... I have a headache.

However, nothing can stop the Meme Princess!  You know what to do... play along if you so desire!

The heat alone is enough to give us headaches. I have circulating fans all through my house, no AC bummer. Pickles and I both are sludge today.....But now after reading this I have the Joan Jette song going over and over in my head (winks) Love Ya Indigo

When I saw the title of this entry, I thought of that old tv series entitled Sledgehammer about a policeman who loved his big gun lol.  It was very funny.
loving you

I really wanted to go to the pool today.  I also wanted to go yesterday.  The reason that I didn't go is because the sun was beaming and although the water would have felt good.  I know I would have gotten some bad reactions to going.  I'm glad you had a good day.  Please take better care of yourself.  Hugs.  Tish G.
