Love/Hate #3

Welcome once again to all Noels Beautiful Life readers.  It's that time of week again, time for Love it/Hate it, where I tell you something I love and then something I hate about the same thing.  So here goes.

I LOVE that school is out for the Summer.
I HATE that it's about 102 degrees here in Alabama.
I LOVE my husband's big overly protective Boxer named Tiger.
I HATE that his registered name on his papers is Sir Aubie Tiger for Auburn.  ROLL TIDE!

I LOVE my wonderfully comfortable 66 degree air in my home.
I HATE the $274 electric bill when my neighbor's is under $200.  I live on the wrong side of the street, where the sun just beams down on my living room all day.

I LOVE that my husband wants me to stay home and not work to be with the kids.
I HATE that he has no insurance where he works.

I LOVE my son's speech therapy teachers, they are amazing with him and he's totally comfortable going to the back without me, just grabs their hand and off he goes.
I HATE that he's non-verbal and has to go to speech therapy.

On the up-side, he has learned a new sign today, it's "help," so now he can ask for help with his toys and we can help him.

  1. We used to have a boxer, his name was Myka. Not as fancy as your dog's name :)

  2. I love that my son stop getting seizures with the right medication.
    I hate how the medication has him really emotional and unpredictable.

    Had to share because it has been on my mind for the entire week.

  3. Holy Moly that is a long name for a pup. What a cute pup he is too. That's so great that your lil guy learned a new sign. Yay! For new signs!! Ugh the no insurance thing is brutal. You get good at find home remedies for everything. Alabama heat, I don't think I would survive but one 24hours. Hang tough lil roots!! Find water!!

    1. Yes, it's awful here... I mean in the desert at least it's a dry heat, the humidity in Alabama makes 102 degrees have a heat index of 112 and heat advisories... It's rough :(

  4. OH the insurance this is always a pain. We have been using a broken a/c for the last month, so our house hasn't been cooler than 77 degrees!

    1. Oh my, I'm not sure how I could deal with 77, I'm sure if I had to... My sister-in-law only has window units and it's hot there. I get use to it the longer I'm there, but at first it feels like being outside to me.
