    zero motivation to work in heat today

    anyone else having a tough time motivating themselves to work in this heat and humidity?
    this is about a first for me. I feel ok, my toe still hurts from stubbing it yesterday on the drywall cart, but I have yet to open the garage door and process all that white oak I need for my table.
    Its 1:40 pm, I usually begin out there around 9am, and IM about to lay down, maybe watch Oprah.
    Tough day.

    Same thing happened to me last night...I went out to do some turning and before I got 1 bottle stopper turned, my shirt was soaking wet...too hot...I went in, took a shower and watched America's Got Talent. At least my daughter enjoyed the show.

    You guys make me sick with all your whining.

    I'm having a heat spell as well but you don't see me complaining. Today we got as high as 49 degrees. Last night we were in the mid 30's, had trouble sleeping cause the wife took off one of the blankets. I was freezing. But didn't complain.

    Buck up, grit your teeth, be tough.

    Allen:

    I hear you. Walked 1/3 of a mile at a leisurely pace after lunch today and got all "shimmery". Not a full sweat but hot. Then sit at a desk for 4 more hours . . . Yuck!

    My garage is under the house so it's cooler on hot days. I just need to keep the roll-up doors closed.

    Hopefully the weather will break soon - 80 degrees on June 2nd is a little much.

    Wish i could get out of this heat. work out in it all year long. summers are way to hot and winters can be way to cold. Should of been the artest i thought i wanted to be when i was young, not a old worn out carpenter i've been for the last 30 years.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
