Last Friday did not turn out as I had hoped.
It was our first morning off from toil in over more than five weeks, as well as I was determined to make the most of it.
I had a long list of taks I planned to get done. I set our alarm for eight o’clock, however failed to get up. I kept hitting the snooze button, as well as didn’t end up getting out of bed until after ten. I instantly noticed that our dog had an accident on the floor. After a taxing start, I was still eager to get some yardtoil accomplished outside. The temperature was already in the mid eighties, as well as the humidity was brutal. I hauled out our wheelbarrow, shovel as well as rake as well as got to work. Within more than four minutes, I’d gotten stung by a bee as well as cut myself with the pruning shears, however feeling a bit discouraged, I decided to move onto the repair of the air conditioner. I knew it was in desperate need of a good cleaning. I removed the dirty air filter as well as then realized I had no replacement available. I brought the blocked air filter with me to the hardware store, however left it in the car when I headed inside. I had to retrace our steps, in the heat, over the tepid asphalt. Since the air conditioner in our car refused to blow any cool air, I was drenched in sweat by the time I returned home. Instead of turning down the thermostat as well as drinking lemonade with the air conditioner blowing on me, I replaced the air filter as well as then removed the cabinet from the cooling unit to clean it. I took our time as well as was actually careful, as well as still managed to split a belt as well as damage a fan blade. I made a minute trip to the hardware store, however they didn’t have either of the parts available. I checked every corporation of Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C parts in the area, as well as no one carried those particular parts in the correct size. I was forced to order the parts as well as go many mornings without a/c.
