My temper erupting. Grrrr, angry Alice.
 So while I was complaining about the heat yesterday I purposely left out one major aspect of why I truly hate the heat, and that would be my temper. It's no secret amongst my friends and family that I can be a bit of a cranky pants when I'm hungry, or haven't slept enough, but the worst is when I'm hot, sticky and sweaty. We haven't had this issue for the past two summers but this year it's back and back with a vengeance.
Actually the volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. Steve took these on our honeymoon.
I get really cranky when I'm hot, and I'm very worried about what it will do for my temper once I have both girls around and they are getting into trouble. I love them more than anything, but I'm worried I'll lose my patience and yell at them when I don't mean to. I know that I'm a good mom, but the thing that helps me keep my temper in check is running and I can't do that yet, and when I finally get to it'll be too hot for me to run outside anytime soon. Not to mention the fact that it will take me some time to build up my distance and speed back up to what it was pre-Katrina.

I just hope my skills come back as quickly as I need them to and that I don't overdue it. I guess that's why my first outside run will be with my friend and my other runs will be on the treadmill so I can stay cool while I get my skills back, and hopefully keep my temper in check.


  1. I get the equation of Hot Humid Weather= Bad Temper!!!

  2. Nice to know I'm not alone.
