How do you keep your house cool in the summer, besides the a/c of course? I use fans, both ceiling and floor, keep my blinds and curtains closed to keep the sun out, and try not to use the oven too much. What other tips/ideas can you share?
What about if you get hot while you're doing stuff around the house? Do you automatically turn the a/c down or do you try to find other ways to cool off first? I will usually go sit in front of a fan to try and cool off. Since my hysterectomy a few years ago, I am just not as able to take getting hot like I used.
I did my grocery and Wal-Mart today and other than that, I have pretty much taken it easy.
