Most of my family is still there.
But despite that, I have a goal of never living there again.
IT'S SO HOT THERE!
And you're going to be like "Oh but it's a dry heat!"
And then I'm going to have to punch you in the throat.
You don't understand.
I don't care if you've been there and you're like "The humidity is worse."
I really don't.
It's hot. It's hot there 24/7. It doesn't even cool down at night. It's still 100F at 2 in the morning. By 9 am it's already 95F on a good day. On a horrible day it will already be 100F by 9am.
I've been to the humid places. I mean, I've been to the equator (though I will qualify that I was there in the 'winter' so it wasn't as humid as it normally gets) and I would take that any day over the sweltering oven inferno that is Phoenix, AZ. To me living in an oven is worse than living in a slow cooker.
(And when I get hot I hate everything and everyone and it's the absolute worst.
I realized this at church today because it was so hot there. I was sitting there and I was sweating and fanning myself and trying to avoid holding my child on my lap because I was so hot. And I was just mad. I just hated it. So yes it did take me 28 years to realize why I hate the heat. Probably because I was too hot to try to figure it out before.)
Anyways, last week I went to Phoenix because my dear older sister was getting married.
She got married in the Phoenix, Arizona temple. (So beautiful btw). And then her reception was outside!
|Lindsey and Austin after getting married! And probably like "It's so hot!"|
I love my sister. This is how you know:
- I went to Arizona in the summer.
- I helped set up the outside reception.
- I didn't stand in front of the giant fans the entire time at the reception.
- I helped clean up the reception.
It seemed so much worse this year than ever, probably because I've been gone for almost a decade.
But I love my sister and the reception was actually really nice and lovely. And I like her husband too. He is good and they are good together. Oh and I got to do the flowers again. So I liked that. And it was nice to see my family.
But I love them more in the winter than in the summer.*
No but seriously, I was so happy I could go and they could get married and everything worked out. It was really fun!
