Georgia Scorcher

Today was 100 degrees my friends!! It's not even the middle of June yet, I can't even imagine what July is going to be like! We went shopping today and it was HOT HOT HOT. For the first time we used these bags:

It felt good to not partake of the plastic bag epidemic...we wondered what the cashier would say and she just said, "WOW, that's a BIG bag." about the blue IKEA bags. Those bags are so cheap, only $.59 and hold a ton of stuff. I remember Sarah blogging about them one time. The other bags are beach bags from IKEA and were only $1.59 each. That's a steal!

The air conditioning unit here at the house has to thaw out again...we knew this day was coming...having to buy a new one. Damn. That's all there really is to say about it. I mean we bought extra stuff while out shopping today so as to not have to travel the 20 mins or 30 mins to go buy food/supplies so that we could conserve more gas/ come home to a hot ass house because of a jacked up air conditioner that we're going to have to fork out money for. Last summer the air conditioning repair man told us the problem is that the unit is too small to cool the house since the previous owners added on the sunroom/office area. Those two rooms alone added too much to the rest of the house for the air conditioner to cope with it. Today, he didn't cope so well and we're in here burning up. I'm all for saving the planet, but not the part that says discontinued use of the air conditioner. This place just gets too hot. I don't know how many of you can sleep with windows open and fans going (I think Sarah does) but we just can't hang. Yes, we're that spoiled...kinda like those people that have to have a soy latte every morning or night, or a glass of wine...we have to have functioning air conditioning. Mr. air fixin' man is getting called REAL soon if it's already 100 degrees on June 7th! (You should see the dogs panting...they are like, "WHAT the freak?!")

We feel your ac pains, we go through it every summer but every guy we call out never really knows the real problem...I can tell you, if you sent someone out here that actually listened to the customer it wouldn't be hard to figure out. :)

Gold star for doing your part to save the earth!

If you had room on your music playlist you could add some Barenaked Ladies like "If I Had a Million Dollars", "One Week", and "The Old Apartment". Fun music to add to your great taste! Then you could add a fun Kilo song! That SOOOO reminds me of college.

AGONY is the only word I can think of for no air conditioning. Just the words NO AIR make me want to turn my thermostat down and get out a parka!

HOW have I missed Total Eclipse of the Heart on your player? OH MY GOSH! This song has one funny story behind it. I love that song not only for the story but just because I love to sing it...which goes back to the funny story. :)

Pant, pant, sympathy pant....

We may not have much, but we do have AC. Come over anytime you need to cool off...but put some clothes on first, please. :P

Hah. I will happily sleep with the windows open & the fan on:
1) When I don't live this close to the fire station AND at the police station.
2) When it is not 95 degrees outside AFTER dark.
Believe you men - the air conditioning is on & blowing all night when it's this hot, but we did bump it up to 75 just to make sure it doesn't freeze up. :)
