We are having our heat pump/air conditioner replaced today. Don't ask me why we picked the middle of summer to have this done.....Not a good idea, and duly noted for future reference.
Our workers arrived around 8 a.m. this morning and have been busy all day removing the old unit and laying the foundation, for the new one. Since I was going to be home all day with the workers, I thought it would be a great idea to clean the house. What was I thinking? Our house slowly crept from a comfortable 72 degrees to a stifling 83 degrees; and, I might add, the temperature is continuing to rise. Another note to self: Do not clean the house in the middle of the summer when you are having the air conditioner replaced; especially if you are a 40 something year old woman with hot flashes that could heat a room themselves. Where's the little icon with the tongue sticking out when you need it.
At the time I'm writing this, we still have no A/C. But I am hopeful, that tonight, I will be sleeping in a nice, cool blowing, man-made breeze. As the Who wrote, in the lyrics from Goin' Mobile, "I'm an air conditioned gypsy". And truly, I am.
Joy for the day is knowing, at some point, the air conditioner is going to be working and it will be a cool haven in my home once again.
