Well, good thing I had posted a few posts late last week as there was no point going on the computer this weekend. After I came home from my 'mother-son' date and seeing Pirates of the Caribbean, dead man's chest, I went upstairs to find that 'the heat was on' except..it wasn't on. The airconditioner was on the fritz/frits for the second time this summer. We had a home insurance policy on certain appliances that included the airconditioner, but the first time it broke down, the guy who came to fix it merely 'patched' it outside on the tube thingy (don't ask me to get technical) and added new freon (cause it had leaked obviously), and naturally, with only a thirty day warranty on that, it broke afterwards. So big rasberry to the guy who did not fix it properly in the first place: PFLLLLLLTTT! Because guess what? Our neighbour who's an airconditioner repair man (unfortunately not on our home policy) came to check it out and he said the coil was all rusted and would need to be replaced. Things don't rust overnight! So..this little (on the grand scheme of things unimportant) 'drama' meant that since it happened after business hours, we won't get a call from the home policy people until today (after 4 business hours of putting in a request) AND it meant that myself and the kids got to sleep downstairs in one of our rooms (since the downstairs airconditioner does work). The kids have been sleeping fine but I haven't. 4 hours one night, 4 another, 2 1/2 this past night because my son's first day back at school was today so I am cooked!
I am hoping to take a nap this morning, hopefully my daughter will let me. Her class doesn't start till friday because they stagger the start dates for the new kids.. bummer!
I am sitting on some stories and some notions I have been pondering over (btw..since I posted on the Fox reporters having been kidnapped, congrats on your release!)but..I need a clearer head with at least 6 hours of sleep under my belt..
sorry for the triteness, I usually don't post personal stuff but right now.. I don't care.. my kingdom for my sleep!
