I hate the dark. Well, I should clarify. I LOVE the dark-I HATE it when the HOUSE is dark in the middle of the day. Throw open those shutters, pull up those blinds, let the open windows' breezes float the curtains about, and let the sunshine pour in!
Personally, a bright and naturally lit house makes for a better disposition. I would happily live in a house with all white or buttercup yellow walls.
The hottest days of summer, however, forced me to shut everything in and hoard our houses coolness for as long as it would stay. I hated it. And you know what, it REALLY didn't make that much of a difference. I was still sweating like a pig and unhappy as a hornet.
It was cute though, when Corynn said "Mama! We are like bears in a cave!"
It made me smile.
For a second, anyway.
