Awe I'm sorry. Mosquitoes suck!!! Literally!!! LOL I've killed them mid suck and have had the joys of watching my blood squirt out. So gross!!! I hope it feels better soon!!!@superme80 - Sitting here, thinking of you, and our recent mosquito bite conversation., Got bitten by one about 4-5 days ago - it will swell WAY up, itch like HECK, then go away, so I think it's gone, or at lest getting better Then the cycle will repeat, like it just did. I hope the little sucker drank so much of my blood he (or I think maybe only the females bite, not sure, too hot for me to Google right now - LOL) exploded in a fit of gluttony.
Thanx, my friend. Actually - Cortisone 10 is my friend right now. But here on the BOARDS, it's YOU!Awe I'm sorry. Mosquitoes suck!!! Literally!!! LOL I've killed them mid suck and have had the joys of watching my blood squirt out. So gross!!! I hope it feels better soon!!!
SO sorry you're going through the noise issue, @NC Belle . I can TOTALLY relate - had one here for the first 18 months. It was 2 tenants, back to back, above me, and a third underneath. All eventually ended up being evicted, of course AFTER I agreed to move to a more expensive apartment on the top floor, and after they had all trashed their apartments, according to management. I had to call management and police numerous times. Which is not me at all, I never want to be "that guy", but I was forced to be. Even my friends were all worried about me, due to lack of sleep, and not wanting to ever go home, not knowing what I'd find. Yes, my now-apartment is more expensive,but at least it's a lot more quiet, and I thank God I did it this past December!!! Hope some resolution happens for you. I know the constant noise/stress/sleep deprivation was making all of my ongoing health issues worse, for sure!!We are lucky that we did not get mosquito bites too much this year despite seeing saucer size ones and smaller (lot of spider webs under windows and stairway. I did scream tonight after seeing an over 4 inch water bug in the bathroom--time to get the exterminator scheduled (our part is like $2 a month in the breakdown apartment stuff).
I am having a headache all last night into today from the downstairs apartment--loud tv/walking/screaming 2 and 4 year old before midnight plus their folks arguingat 3:45 am till 430 am...could hear words more than usual. It as bad enough that hearing them doing fireworks near the building...I open the patio door and said in a loud voice--Whoever is doing the fireworks...cut it out or I call the cops"...some of their loud patio door slams pus stomping for ten minutes before it was "quiet for 45 minutes. It is hard with all that stuff, but trying to cut them a break with the high temps (hoping for the best).
I'm not sure that if we want to renew this lease yet. we can put with stuff for a little longer. We want better amenities in the next one.
@sweetpeama Sorry about he firbo flare, hope you feel better soon. I can also relate about being MISERABLE the last week with the heat and humidity (that's how I know I could NEVER live in Florida!!!), feeling like the a.c. wasn't even working (despite me turning the temp down several times - the utility company is gonna LOVE me!!!), and cooking as little/light as possible, - all that. Even the few weeks leading up to the heat wave were rough for me - it's the humidity that kills my body even worse than the heat (terrible when combined!), and that has been in FULL effect this summer, here in the Northeast.This week has been a mixed one. Hot and miserable for the tempatures supposedly my air conditioning is working but it feels crazy hot in my house so meals are what we can heat up in the microwwave or in a slow cooker and occasinally on a burner on top of the stove. Spent Monday and Tuesday starting on the major cleaning that my house needs-mainly decluttering at this point. Overdid it with my fibro so now I am laid up. Relief and anger over the final solving of a murder in my area https://www.theepochtimes.com/montana-man-admits-he-murdered-18-year-old-miranda-fenner-in-1998_3014454.html
Hope so hard that justice is served cold to this creep.
We too have been enjoying lower humidity than we have been having only an average of 22% today instead of the 49-55% range we have been having here in our Northern Dessert Climate. As of yesterday we have had over 11.5 inches of moisture with our average being 8.9 for the year so far. Our normal for the entire year is 12-16 inches. Technically I live in what is called a Steepe climate which means hot dry summers and cold semi wet winters. At least in the winter I can put on more layers there is only so much a person can take off without being indecient. At least it has been cooling down a bit in the evenings so it is nice to go and stand out on my front porch and look up at the stars when it is not raining provided the mosquitos don't eat me alive.@sweetpeama Sorry about he firbo flare, hope you feel better soon.

Yesterday was such a nice change - got a little hot in the afternoon, but much cooler overall, and certainly less humid. So - of course - like you - I totally overdid it - running around doing errands with a friend, then came home, did laundry, did some cooking, etc. And I'm paying for it - pain trying to sleep last night. Today still nice, so trying to do housework, but TRYING to make myself take it SLOWLY.,
