We took the kids to Valley Fair today (a large local amusement park)... got discount tix from the other half'sand humid today, so needless to say, I only lasted two hours and then the headache and the overheating became too much. So then he decided we should go home, therefore allowing him time to still get to the racetrack tonight. Afterall, none of us wanted to go on the rides he wanted to (the kids are 13, 11, 8, 5). Of course I was passed out on the bed trying to sleep off the headache when he left, so now guess who gets to get supper for the kids.

Worst of all, when we were walking to the car, he's telling the kids of a local NFL player that died of heat exhaustion years back so this is why it's important to keep hydrated and stay cool. Really, did the kids need to hear about a death?! I already felt like crap for ruining the family day, didn't need to let them worry extra about me possibly dying.
