The weather forecast is 42 degrees Celsius with thunderstorms.
My plan to survive tomorrow = jump in the pool early, stay in until Charlie and I are all pruny, get out long enough to eat then jump right back in.
I'm not looking forward to tomorrow. Not at all.
Although I like warm weather, this is just ridiculous. If I had wanted this kind of heat I'd live in a desert. Oh yeah, Australia is pretty much desert.
Kaiden has tried to convince me to let him have the day off school tomorrow. Unfortunately he needs to work on his skills of persuasion. His reasoning is that some of his classes are NOT air conditioned and ALL his friends are getting to spend the day at home.
Using my mum super powers to read through the teenage exaggeration, I translate that to mean that maybe just one of his class rooms isn't air conditioned, perhaps it's actually someone else's classroom that just happens to be near his, or maybe he heard an urban myth that there might be a classroom without air conditioning.
Also instead of all his friends being allowed to stay home, maybe it's just one of his friends getting the day off, or maybe one of his friends just happened to mention that they would like the day off.
Today's post will be short. The awake/sleep balance is not looking good at the moment. 42 hours awake/3 hours sleep.
What's the odds Charlie will sleep through the night tonight? Pretty low. What's the odds he will sleep past 5am? Even lower.
Lucky for him he's such a gorgeous cherub. And I have lots of coffee to hand.
