I'm hot

Excuse me, but I am very hot. Not because it's 82-degrees outside (93-degrees inside the house). Not because my 25-year-old daughter starred yesterday on the TV show Divorce Court (Seriously, I'm not joking; I'll post the episode # soon). And I'm not hot because my mother-in-law visited from Las Vegas last week, and washed and folded my underwear.

I'm hot because our central air conditioning unit broke down yesterday, and a service man is here fixing it right now. When he leaves, he's gonna take $820.00 of my Effa/HarperCollins advance, money I'd planned to use on...anything but my air conditioner.

On the bright side, I guess I should be thankful that I can afford to get the unit fixed at all. Had it broke down a month ago, we'd be sitting in this house sweating like pigs, not smelling right.

Well, Don, you are indeed, hot! lol! I'm sorry for laughing, but your description is hilarious! On a serious note...$820.00? Wow...please tell me he put in a new unit!

We're about to do the same dang thing. What makes it even worse is that we'll be selling the house in a few months! argh!

You've definitely got a lot more to be "hot under the collar" about though. Divorce Court? Wow.

I'm not laughing. Am air conditioning break down is SERIOUS stuff. I can't believe it is that hot there. WE are still running our heater twice a day!
