So here it is, the end of May.. in Central Florida. What breaks down?? The A/C in my house.. again! Luckily, my husband is here (versus being out of town for 2 months) to do something about it. Last year at the end of June it broke too. Why does it break so often? Oh I dunno. It might have something to do with the fact that this house is about 40 years old and it is the original unit. Or maybe because our last name should be Murphy. We have a new unit already just waiting to be installed but of course there has been no money to make it happen. So we called the A/C guy yesterday to see what it would cost to fix the broken one. He estimated about 300-400 bucks :0 The we asked what he would charge to install the new one if my husband did most of the work (removing the old one building the new platform and enclosure.) He is a carpenter (thank God) so he has the knowledge to do so and do a good job. He asked us what we were willing to spend. I said $1.07 because that's all we have. Of course he laughed. Anyway, if hubs did the removal and prep work, the guy said it should cost about $700 Sigh. So now we are going to have to hold up liquor store to get the liquid courage to rob a bank to pay for it.
Luckily, it has rained all week almost non-stop, so that has kept it cool enough for us to stay here. If not for the rain, I would
Today is the first day we have not woken up to rain, I am hoping for more. Just over us, not the rest of the state.. we really can't handle much more.
How often does this stuff happen to you? Heat breaking in the winter- AC breaking in the summer or any other Murphy's law related shit that happens at such an inopportune time?
