Seriously, again??

This weekend Jay and I went on another hike - the water was cool, the scenery was gorgeous, and we got some pretty good pictures. Unfortunately, they're all on his laptop so I can't share them with you.

It stressed me out a little, to spend the whole Saturday away, but Jay assured me that we'd get the housework done this week after work.

After the hike we headed to a friend's house for a coupon party. Only I didn't tell Jay that it was a couponfest. He and the man of the house watched baseball and kept themselves intertained while the womenfolk clipped coupons at the table.

When we got home, the house was 83 degrees. The a/c is broken, for the 3rd time this summer. We had to call them out in June and July, why skip August?

Part of the frustration is that Jay's parents (our landlords) have a home warranty on it. The idea of a warranty is great, something breaks and its only $50 to repair it.

In reality that means using the repair company they choose, the repairman having to diagnose, then waiting on approval to fix the problem. In our situation, I'd be willing to be good money that there is some fraud going on. Since our warranty expires next Tuesday, I'm guessing that they've just been half @$$ing the job trying to wait us out till the warranty expires.

Remember that housework I abandoned on Saturday? Its still waiting for me. As hard as it is to find the motivation to scrub a toilet, its even harder to find when its 87 degrees inside.

With the windows open, sitting under the ceiling fan I can almost not be miserable. Stick me in the bathroom with no window to open, no air circulating at all? I'll pass.


  1. I wouldn't be happy either. Bad enough that you have to be hot, but when it keeps happening? Not good!

  2. Sucky! I'd be more than happy to trade weather for a while ~ we just had a weekend of 52-61 and the temps for the rest of the week are predicted to stay below 76. Man, I hope summer shows up pretty soon ~ we're rapidly approaching the time of year when overnight frost is normal!!

  3. Oh, snap!!! UGH!! I hope they get that ac fixed for you SOON. That's ridiculous -- and in the three summer months, too, of course.

  4. I wish I had friends here to have a coupon party with. How fun! I know what you mean about the heat - I tried to clean the house yesterday but it was just too darn hot.

  5. Ugg! That sucks!!! Hopefully they fix it for real this time!

  6. There is no way I could live with out A/C. It's only 107* here! I need my A/C. You can always come visit and soak up our A/C.

  7. The housework, it can wait.

    Seriously, that STINKS about the AC. Hope it gets fixed soon (and the guys actually know what they are doing!).

  8. I would be ticked also. When things break and not fixed properly I am ready to throw down. P gives me the phone and lets me throw down. It helps sometimes.


what up yo?
