In comparison to June 2016, July was a less busy month; it’s the height of “lazy summertime”. I started feeling better and there was no traveling. It was a lazy month but that’s what I wanted. No regrets.
The heat was oppressive and I found myself staying indoors more than I would have liked. But, honestly I just did not feel like being out in 100º heat in a stinky city filled with clueless summer vacation tourists. We went to the Jersey Shore… Continue reading | 10 Comments

I hate complaining about the heat when I know that winter is going to be brutal, but we’re not used to extreme weather. We’re wimps.
