The hits just keep on coming

What is the single worst thing that could happen on one of the hottest days of the year?

As if I didn't have enough to deal with in airing out the basement and trying to get ready for a trip this week, our two year old air conditioner decided to crap out on us again yesterday. Yes I said again - we had this issue last week too, but that was before it was in the "waytoofreakinghot" category of heat. They came out and did some work (under warranty, thank the Lord) and it seemed to be fine.

Yesterday, I came home from work and was doing some normal evening type chores - emptying the dishwasher, picking up a little bit, nothing terribly strenuous, but I realize, gee, I'm working up a sweat here, that's odd...checked the thermostat and discovered the error message was back and it was nearly 80 degrees in the house. Awesome.

I do want to apologize here for whining - I know many, many people who do not have air conditioning at all, some of whom are probably reading and saying "you're preaching to the choir here, try living that way all the time." I am spoiled - but darn it, I want to be spoiled. We payed good money for that unit and I want it to work, especially on days where I am about to re-enact the Wicked Witch's "Melting" routine. Oy.

The good news is the technician who came out last week should be able to get to us today, so I'll cross my fingers he can figure this thing out. And I pray my cats are semi-intelligent and just go hang out in the basement if they get too warm today.

Yeah, remember my "love affair" with summer? It's done. I'm breaking up with summer. Summer, you and I are through. It was fun while it lasted.

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you get the air fixed today! No fun that's for sure!
