Happiness is...

An air conditioner that spews out wonderful cold air into our home... especially the second floor, which, with no a/c, masquerades as a sauna.

My no-bake cookies will finally set up instead of sitting there in big ooey gooey globs. (Although, in my book there isn't really anything wrong with ooey gooey chocolate blobs EVER.) :)

I think I'll pop in a movie after I get dinner started (in my kitchen that will NOT heat up to 100' with the oven on) and enjoy sitting in a chair and not sticking to it.


And, in addition to just enjoying the temperature in here, I get to enjoy being RIGHT about diagnosing the a/c's problem. Yep, I can look just enough up on the internet to be truly dangerous. :) I passed it along that the repair person should bring a new contactor for our particular a/c unit. Did he have it when he arrived? NO! Of course not. Hey, I tried. But I was happy b/c he still got it fixed after a quick trip to pick one up. I just wish I had some electrical knowledge so I could have saved the service fee and installed it myself!

Back to enjoying these wonderful temperatures... (some days it takes so little to make me happy)... :)

A Perfect Week to be Stuck in the 70's

What a perfect week for our air conditioning to start acting up.


It's a gorgeous week in the 70's. I'm loving it! (And I'm also loving it that the a/c repair person is arriving on Wednesday to save us.) :)

One of my friends commented on Facebook today that it was going to be in the 70's all week. One of her commenters replied, "I've been stuck in the 70's since jr. high school. I still wear bell bottom pants and listen to Tony Orland & Dawn on my 8 track."

I just found that comment to be completely hilarious. :) Makes me want to find my 8-tracks. :) hehe

A Thousand Reasons
