Couponing for the Rest of Us

*HOT* My air is broken. No Really, it’s HOT.

My husband may come home from his cold, air-conditioned office today to find me like this….

Jamie here!  Just a note to let you know that my air has been broken now for over two weeks – and if you notice a slight delay in some of our posts, it may just be because I passed out for a little while here or there – or perhaps slipped in a sweat puddle on the kitchen floor and bumped my head for a bit.  NO biggie!  Just wanted to keep you in the loop!

But honestly – it’s been a miserable week with temperatures in the high 90′s and that sticky southern Tennessee humidity that makes your arms stick to your sides if you don’t keep them constantly windmilling.   I tried to get up from my kitchen chair earlier and I think my thighs stripped some of the varnish off.

I’ve learned a couple useful tidbits to keep in mind for future air outtages, however:

1) Buy lots of Popsicles.  I mean LOTS.  Never underestimate your need for mass quantities of popsicles.

I ate TWELVE Flavor-Ice pops yesterday.  I would’ve have eaten more today, but I finished the box yesterday.  They should make bigger boxes.

2)  Prepare to Feel Really Unattractive. I’ve got a sweat mustache and my clothes are stuck to my in all the worst ways, but let’s look on the bright side, shall we?

Sitting in front of fans all day really gives you that “movie star” vibe.

I hope you’re staying cool out there – Target & Bi-Lo will be up shortly!

  1. When airconditions broke it is really a problem most specially on a very hot season. I can die without my aircondition on a summer time! :)
