Hot Louisiana Weather Getting Hotter
We were able to borrow a small window unit from my brother-in-law. Since my SIL and her granddaughter are still there, we thought we'd put the window unit in a somewhat central location so we could all benefit. It's in the dining room window which is across the house from our bedroom. So E and I (at 10 pm last night!) moved our mattress into the dining room and slept under the air conditioning. We had a big industrial fan blowing down the hall to help circulation. It was hysterical - except at 10 pm stuff like that isn't hysterical. It's only the next day that you can actually look back and find something like that hysterical.
Picture E and I on the mattress on the floor while Sophie and Sneauball fight for spots on both our pillows so they can be closest to the cool. Thankfully they were groomed yesterday or Sophie would have suffocated. Add to that mental picture the cat scrambling to find a spot under the air. Nate is the only one that wasn't fighting for prime real estate. Imagine how well I slept. [vbg]
The repairman is on his way as I type. Hopefully it is something simple (and relatively cheap) like the safety pan being full thereby shutting off the outside unit to protect overflow and ceiling damage. In that case all that needs to be done is the pan emptied and the line blown out. I'm trying to keep a positive attitude about it.
Ah, the joys of homeownership! After renting for nearly seven years, I'd almost forgotten. :-D
