Well, it’s that time of year here in Chennai – summertime. Now, summer might be great where you live but here it is “sweat all the time” time. The average daily temperature hovers somewhere between 35 and 40 celsius. I’m not kidding. And it is so humid. We all shower at least 3 or 4 times a day. Logan spends a lot of time running around naked (at least it saves on laundry). The only way to stay cool is to sit under a cold shower and blow a fan on you, though even the cold water tap is hot for most of the day since the water tank sits on the roof.

We don’t have an air conditioner but if we find one that is not too expensive we will get it as it is a need to be able to sleep better. All of us sleep directly under the fan at night. I move the crib to the foot of our bed and Glad and I sleep at the foot of the bed too. Otherwise it is too hot. The fan can’t cool the whole room so you have to be right under it. Move slightly away and you sweat. As it is, you sweat anyway and our day begins with a nice cold shower (before the water heats up).

I’m due in exactly 2 weeks. I can’t wait to lose the tummy and the heavy weight of the baby. I feel ready any day now. Pray that I can have a good delivery.

In case you haven’t noticed, the computer is working again. We had to buy an external keyboard so now the laptop is basically a desktop, since it has to be plugged in all the time (the battery has been shot for about a year now). But the internet connection is in the living room so when I want to connect, I have to move the whole contraption there. Hopefully we will be able to get wireless sometime so the computer can stay put.
