Life is busy, so blogging the way I want to blog is put on hold.
Our AC has been on the fritz. Not a good thing when you live in the desert and the daily temperature is around 110. For a few weeks, it hasn't been putting out cold air at night. Why only at night, one could only guess. Each night, the duration of its outage increased. The first set of technicians couldn't pin down the problem. Finally, we got a seasoned person who figured it out. Of course the part had to be ordered, and once it finally arrived at the company we could schedule the repair.
The day before the repair was to take place, Ian got to go over to Grandma and Grandpa's house, while Laurel and I enjoyed time together. While Laurel took a little siesta, I noticed the temperature was rising. Sure enough, no AC. By the time she woke up, the thermostat was reading 86. At that rate, I knew it would reach above 95 by the time Paul got home.
Laurel and I headed to a blessedly cold hotel room. After work, Paul packed up a few things for all of us and met us there. Ian got to have a little slumber party with the grandparents.
Our AC unit has been slowly falling apart ever since we moved in four years ago. It was time to bite the bullet and get a new one. OUCH!!!!
But, hurray, here we are in a nice, cool house. A nice, cool house that should stay that way relatively problem free for about 10 years.
Other things keeping us busy:
We headed up to Flagstaff for their annual Celtic Festival. It rained, it poured, and WE LOVED IT!!!
I'm excitedly co-hosting a baby shower for a dear friend I've known since elementary school. Proud to say I've known her about 28 years. This is baby #5 for her, YIKES! This week my goal is to clean the house so guests won't stick to the floors, walls, chairs, etc.
Have a great week everyone. Stay cool.
