The Week From Hell Continues

I won't bore you with the details, but I'm stuck in South Texas this weekend instead of going back home to the Hill Country. When I say this is the week from Hell I'm being literal.

Today was the 200th day this year (the 287th day of the year since Jan. 1) when the temperature was 90 degrees or higher. Yes, that's 200/287, or 70%, of the days this year when we've broken the 90 degree mark. GMTFOOH!

To make matters worse, I've been trading text messages with my 15-year-old daughter. She's at that age where she's a mix of snark and sweetness. The text's were all snark until the last one - "Goodnight Daddy."

There's something about being called "Daddy" that makes most men melt. I'm no exception.

GMTFOOH indeed...
