Big girls don't cry . . .

We cuss. Like sailors. :)
Let me explain. No, it's been a while. Let me sum up. The air conditioning guy came out last week, told me the repair would be hundreds of dollars and even then there were no guarantees as the system is original to the house-20 years old. So, after much teeth gnashing and nail biting and extensive conversation with dh, we agreed to replace the entire thing--heating and cooling units. Because everything is so high efficiency now a days, you can't just replace one on an old system like this. :( :(
I was conflicted about this decision. Very conflicted. Spending a couple hundred vs thousands still seemed like a good deal to me! The repair guy did fix the existing unit (basically for free since we are getting new unit), but here's kicker number 2: They can't put in the new unit until after memorial day weekend. But things seemed like they were once again rolling along.
Until Sunday night. I was downstairs folding clothes, staring off into space when it hit me that something was very wrong. In our unfinished (concrete floors) basement, there was a small flood spanning the entire room. The furnace part of this heating/cooling unit was spuing water all over the floor. This, this is when I started cussing. :( :(
I'd been really good up until this point too. I don't need my little mockingbird (aka my 3 yr old) throwing the f-bomb back at me, so I've been nearly a saint for the past 2 years. But I just could not hold it in any longer and fly the words did. And what is particularly upsetting to me is that I was cussing in the face of a sign from above. If that wasn't a sign from heaven to replace the piece of crap (aka heating/cooling unit), I don't know what was. Hope St. Peter had his ears covered, my grandmother is going to beat me with a stick when I get there for this one. And she should. :)
Since now I'm on the $h@! list, would it now be inappropriate to pray for low temperatures and overcast/rainy days until next Tuesday? Not seeing as how I have all that much choice. . .
How about them sneaks? (and a nice change of subject):




I can say without reservation, you will love this new June kit from Cocoa Daisy called Cubicle. It goes on sale June 1, earlier for subscribers. Happy Tuesday, until tomorrow.

It's not healthy to keep all that angst wrapped up - ya gotta let it out (and think of the money you'll save in therapy costs!) Hoping your weekend is cool and easy - hang in there! ;)
