I have this new fantasy that involves an air-conditioning repair man.
I suppose it might be a situational sort of fantasy. It is hard to tell. I might be hallucinating. It is really hot in here.
Normally when our AC dies in the middle of the summer (oh yes, this has happened to us before, in Florida) we just buy a new one, but this time is different. You see, we are remodeling 3/4 of my house in about three weeks.
Now, when I saw we are remodeling the house, I mean we are paying a contractor to pay other people to remodel our house.
We just haven’t picked the contractor yet.
The real problem is that we were planning on replacing our entire AC unit (and our furnace, and our hot water heater, and our entire kitchen) in a few weeks anyway. We just need to move a few walls before the place where it will go exists as a wall instead of the path to my washer and dryer.
When the air conditioner officially ate it two weeks ago we decided we would suck it up and wait until it was time to install the new one we were going to buy anyway instead of buying it now and then paying to move it in 15 days.
It isn’t quite as dire as it sounds, the bids are out and we expect to hire a contractor next week and hopefully they will be able to start work immediately.
It really wasn’t that big of a deal last week, but it is kind of warm now.
*has heat stroke in advance*
Last week, when we were all sleeping in the basement, I told my husband You know, someday we will look back on this and remember it fondly. We’ll be all, remember that time our air went out and it was 100 degrees and we had to sleep downstairs? Awww, we were so cute back then. But then it was 99 the next day and we just went and slept at his parent’s house.
Then we left town until it cooled down.
I guess we will stick it out for another week or two. Hopefully it will at least get back down into the 80s. The irony is that I am so looking forward to the renovations so that I have air conditioning I am not even appreciating the fact that I have a working kitchen, which is where my mind should be. I’ve never redone a kitchen before but from what I understand it is very, very stressful. I’m sure I will be reporting more on that as the summer goes on.
