When Jarod has to work at 9am, like he did this morning, there's a little more of a push to get ourselves out the door. But we made it, and Mary was pleased with us and with our outfits. After she got done complaining about the heat and how it can kill people, she started in on some lovely compliments. Hooray! We're back to normal!

The heat truly is horrific for someone like Old Lady Mary; I wish she would let me bring her all her groceries, but she won't allow it. She prefers to walk half a mile to get her own. She says she has to get out sometimes, or she'll die. And I'm all, "Um, Mary, if you get out for too long with the heat this intense, you could die. STAY IN AND CALL ME IF YOU NEED SOMETHING." But she won't do it. I try not to be too annoyed about it, but sometimes I roll my eyes a little when I say, "MARY, it is NO TROUBLE. Stop thinking you are troubling me if you call. It troubles me that you DON'T call." Good thing her vision's not good enough to see my facial expressions. I'd be in trouble!
