    Thank goodness it's still cool out at night... All we need are to crack the windows a tad and it feels nice and cool all night.  No need to turn on the AC quite yet :)

    My son got a new window this weekend!!  When we moved into the appartment we are currently in, he had a huge crack accross his window.  It made the appartment very cold in the winder.  Now that it is fixed, I am hoping this will decrease the cost of my energy bill.  LOL
