It made it to 103 here yesterday. Again. After dinner, I took a shower. Lion asked for an ice cream sandwich. Then we realized the freezer was not as cold as it should be. Cue the flurry of activity surrounding taking it apart to see if the drain is clogged. Nope. Not clogged, but it did make a weird noise when I moved the cover for the coil. I cleaned off a lot of ice and put it back together. By this time, I needed another shower because I was sweating so much again. I decided not to take one because I might have needed to take the freezer apart again if my first “fix” didn’t work. After a while, we decided to rearrange some stuff to let air circulate better. It’s still not working great but the temperature is lower than it started out. We may have to call for service.
I’m not convinced I was going to do anything with Lion anyway, but after crawling around on the floor and getting all sweaty again, it was definite. Today is “only” 90 degrees so far. Keep in mind that our high happens around 5 pm and it’s 1:30 right now. Lion says it may be cool enough for waxing. I think not. I’m sticking with Tuesday and Wednesday as the goal. However, I hope there will be time and energy for play tonight.
I was a little surprised when Lion said he doesn’t care if his legs are waxed. The only reason I ever did them is because he asked me to. At one point, I decided to wax them every other month. I promptly forgot about that. It’s been a long time. The only reason I thought about waxing them is the hair has gotten fairly thick. I certainly don’t have to wax them. I think he does prefer them hairless though. It’s just a lot to do.
Little did I know, all those years ago, how much upkeep there was to owning a Lion. Am I sorry I agreed to do it? Not at all.
