I don't know about you, but I wasn't the easiest person to live with this weekend. I was trying to stay cool without blowing our entire budget on the soon-to-be-in-the-mail electric bill and I was trying to trick myself into thinking I was comfortable, no matter what the temperature was.
I was unsuccessful in both attempts. As a result, I didn't sleep well and I was, as I call it, a bit prickly. I tried every trick I knew to stay cool. Nothing worked.
I tried suggestions from my family. My mom swears that by placing your feet in cool water you will cool off in a heartbeat and my mother-in-law suggested placing a big bowl of ice with a fan behind it. I even searched on-line for other ideas,some of which seemed stupid and even dangerous.
So, how did you stay cool? Do you have a hack that really worked with all this heat and humidity? I would love to know, because I have a feeling they could come in handy before the summer is over.
