Temperatures this week have been close to 100° every single day.
I’ve been running the air conditioner non-stop.
I know it’s not good to run the air conditioner all day and all night, but the temperatures are too hot and humid to turn off the machine. I would rather spend $300 every month to run the air conditioner than to shut it off and be miserable, hot, and completely uncomfortable. I have lived in the midwest all of my life. I have been living in Glenview, Illinois for the past 10 years. I moved to Glenview when I got a promotion with a pharmaceutical company. I still work for the pharmaceutical manufacturing company 5 days a week. On the weekends when I am home with the kids, we always do something fun. During the summer when the temperatures are hot and humid, I take the kids to one of the many Glenview, Illinois parks. One of the best places to go is Flick Park. Flick Park has an outdoor community pool with slides and lap lanes. There are even diving boards. The water is always clean and clear and there are lifeguards on duty seven days a week. The kids love to spend the day at the park in the pool and I can sit at a table under some shade and catch up on any paperwork I did not complete from the week. At the end of the day, we leave slick park and go to one of the ice cream shops. After that we head back home for a nice dinner.
