The heat has been incredible this week. We've had several consecutive days where the heat index was upwards of 110. The girls and I have ventured out some to do errands and the like, but by and large we've been enjoying the benefits of one of the greatest inventions of modern society, air conditioning. I can't even begin to imagine how horrible it would be to not have it when the weather is this unbearable.

We're now on day 5 of G and the boys being gone and and it's been so quiet and peaceful. Going from 4 kids to 2 is a breeze generally, but when you go from 2 boys and 2 girls to just 2 girls, it's an order of magnitude easier. Things don't get nearly as messy. There's much less noise and chaos. It's just calmer in general. I love the guys and will be happy to have them come home safely from their wilderness adventure, but I have to say that it's been an oasis of calm without them. :)

While reveling in the quiet this evening I read a chick lit. I was in the mood for easy and breezy and this one delivered. It's called Heiress for Hire by Erin McCarthy. It didn't require a lot of higher-order thinking skills, but it was entertaining and light and just what I was in the mood for. That brings the total to 69 so far for the year.

We'll be heading to the beach at the end of next week for our annual vacation with my m-i-l. Which means that it's time for me to start stocking up on my beach reading. Any good suggestions for what I should take along?
