Last week was pretty brutal. There were lots of things about last week that made it a week I’d rather forget, but complaining about them here on the Internets for everyone to see would only lead to more trouble–such is the life of a public servant. Suffice it to say that the weekend was very, very welcome.

One thing I can complain about with impunity, however, is something that everyone in Texas is complaining about: this horrendous weather. I realize that complaining about the weather is completely futile, and that it’s summertime, which generally means really uncomfortable heat and humidity if you live in the Southern part of the United States. But this drought and these record temperatures in Texas are seriously getting out of hand.  My plants are all dead, it seems like we’re on water restrictions every other week, and the foundation of our house is literally sinking into the ground because the soil isn’t getting the moisture it’s used to getting. Out. of. control. I’m not sure what specific horrible thing Texas did in the past to be raking in all of this lousy weather Karma (I know–there is a long, long list), but  hopefully we’ll have paid our dues soon and we can get some rain!  In the meantime, enjoy this week’s lists and have a great week…
