Anyway, Tim and I finished off the weekend by going to see the movie Rock of Ages!! It was really good and I loved the music!! I have a feeling that when it comes out on DVD there will be a sing-a-long version and I may or may not be investing in one when it does. :) For the rest of that "week" (I say "week" because my weekend started on Thursday) I just worked and tried to stay cool in my room! It was SOOO hot. I have slept on the floor at least one of the nights and the two fans were always pointed directly at me and I was still baking! Luckily, I have added two more fans, making a total of four now, and it has also cooled off outside as well. I'm finally using a blanket at night again and I'm probably way more excited about that than I should be! Although, it was extremely hot (and I have a feeling the heat isn't over because it's still only July), my friends and I have turned it into fun by coming up with some "You know it's hot when..." phrases. Here are a few...
You know it's hot when you're excited to go to work because it's air conditioned.
You know it's hot when you've never been more excited to take a cold shower.
You know it's hot when you're sweating even after that cold shower.
And one of my favorites...
You know it's hot when you have to put your deodorant in the refrigerator.
Anyway, at the end of the week (meaning Thursday), I started my vacation by going to Six Flags with Tim. Who knew it would end up being a record breaking day for the temperature, but we honestly couldn't tell at all. We were having a blast and staying hydrated! We were lucky enough to have short lines so we got to slide down a ton of water slides and rode some roller coasters, including the new one called X-Flight. It was really fun and we also got to see two of our friends dance/sing in the shows that are performed there. Overall, it was an amazing day, but the day didn't end there because I left that night with my family for Virginia for a family wedding. :)

Glad Tim didn't drop the camera.
