My son had to work in the morning. He put Teddy Bear in the bedroom with some ice water and the AC on medium. Any time he takes him out for one of his walks, he has been carrying a bottle of ice water and a small cup so he can stay hydrated. He usually keeps him out for an hour or more. But in this heat, as soon as TB does his business, he brings him right back home. TB does not do well in the heat.

Few of us do well in the heat! Glad Teddy Bear has such an attentive daddy!

I am wondering how I would be able to walk the miles & miles through disney.
I went to Disney with my ex wife a few years ago. She was in a wheel chair. I couldn't believe how easy it was to get around. Not once were we inconvenienced or held up because of it. Actually, we were given many advantages and privileges because of it. We had separate isles, and the handicapped seating is top notch, usually front row. My dauther loved it also because she sat on my wife's lap and got wheeled around for the whole trip.

I'm taking a break. My bf and I are renting a room from a friend of his, who happens to be a bachelor. I moved in a couple days ago, and I've just been getting settled until now, so today I cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed the whole house, and cleaned the upstairs bathroom that we use. My god, this man had 3 cases of empty beer cans and bottles I recycled, and there was about 1/4 inch of dust on every ledge, and under the appliances. And the bathroom! I hate cleaning other people's toilets, and this was the dirtiest toilet I have ever cleaned! And I used to work at a young adult male group home, so that is saying something. The dust all over the outside of the toilet that was covered in pee really added to the effect. He must not know that you are supposed to clean more than just the inside of the toilet lol. The house is deceptively clean and picked up looking when you first walk in, but boy did it need some detailing. Phew that was a lot of work!! I still need to dust in the living room. Then I will feel more comfortable here. Hopefully we will only be here for 2 weeks-a month and a half, but its still worth it to not be grossed out, and it's kind of a nice thank you for letting us stay here too.

YUCK!!!


Skittle, you are a better person than me.
I did that for a few people in my 20's--no dust bunnies, more like dust dinosaurs and bathrooms--BLUCK. In case they don't thank you--I'll say it for them, THANK YOU! <<---that is you.

I don't even like cleaning my own toliet (don't worry, I do) let alone someone else's. It is a lot of work when you don't clean on a regular basis.

And I second the big YUCK!!

I bought a 1 foot tall by 5 foot cheapo pool today.
I received a warning notice with the pool. It said "NO DIVING, Shallow Water, You can be permanently injured".
Really? I'm thinking I won't dive now.

Well, if you're not too tall, it might be OK.
