I went home to visit my parents yesterday. It was a hot, hot day for Ohio. As I was driving the hour home, I started to wonder if my air was broken in my van. I never have it on full blast but I did yesterday. It stayed on high the whole way home. I decided it was working, just having trouble keeping up with the heat. It was 91 degree outside. Thank goodness if was working.
When I got home, I noticed that I forgot to turn the air down so my house would be cooler in the evening. Dang it. My kids are pretty fussy when it comes to heat (and a lot of other things). So, I was annoyed at myself. The house would never cool by bedtime. I started to make dinner (with the oven) and noticed that the house was getting unbearable. We have tons of windows and the house just bakes in the afternoon sun. I kept checking the thermostat. 76, 79, 80, 81, 82, what? It wasn't going down, but up. Our air conditioning in our house is broken. Double dang it.
I totally deserve this. I wrote this post on September 2:
I am always cold. Even in the summer, it is not uncommon to find me wearing my slippers and a sweatshirt. I prefer no air conditioning. But, unfortunately, I have lost that battle with my husband and kids. So, air conditioning it is.
I got what I deserved this time. In the past, I had a few instances where I had written a post and something good happened right afterwards. I called them blogging miracles. I should have known this would happen when I wrote about the air conditioning. Do you any superstitions that you won't talk about for fear they will come true? I never brag how long it has been since my kid has had a cold. (Note to self, use Purell tonight when he comes off the bus). I also don't like to talk about my van and how well it has been running (Note to self, make appointment for routine check-up). Don't worry, comment sections are worry free areas of the post where nothing bad will happen if you write it. Cross your fingers.
