I Live Like a Vampire
Last updated: June 2017
I live in south Texas only a few short miles to the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. My heart's desire is to don my swimsuit, sunbathe to a nice golden brown, and enjoy walks on the beach and the magnificent ocean. Alas! It is summer now and I cannot even enjoy my patio during the day much less the, sun, hot sand, and over one hundred degree heat indexes that we have here. I live everyday in an air conditioned environment. To add insult to injury, I am also bothered by the cold temperature that my spouse says it needs to be for his comfort. I have to wear a sweater or shawl inside the house! I am only really comfortable for a few short months of the year. There is nothing that works for me except to not be outside during the daylight hours. I live the life of a vampire.
