Seriously. I'll wait.
I am in the middle of the first heat wave of the season in VA and my air conditioning unit has decided to stop running. Not only that, it (supposedly) can't be repaired it has to be replaced. Not only that, it can't be replaced until Tuesday. Not only that, my parents are coming into town on Wednesday. When am I going to get to do the real thorough cleaning that one does when one's parents come to town?
It's hot in here. It's Africa hot in here. That is why I was up at 5:00 am on a Saturday doing all the things in my house that I won't be able to bear to do later on. Like emptying the dishwasher, doing the laundry, paying the bills, watering the lawn ... well, that's outside but you know what I mean. I stayed in a hotel on Thursday but for some unknown reason I stayed here last night. It's back to the hotel for me. This is bogus.
My best friend, who is probably the thriftiest person I know (and has his wife on the "envelope system") told me to just imagine how much money I'm saving without using my A/C.
