How do I know it’s summer? Because the air conditioner decided to quit today. A valve at the heat pump unit outside keeps freezing up. The heat pump runs. The inside unit will kick on and blow cold air for 30-45 seconds, then it quits. We turned it off, let the valve thaw, changed filters … nothing’s worked so far. We’ll probably have to call somebody out tomorrow. That’ll probably be a minimum of $100.
Hey, honey, guess what you’re getting for your 20th wedding anniversary. Yep, you’re getting your heat pump serviced.
Oh, it’s not that bad, but it’s one more straw on the camel’s back, ya know.
The only writing I’ve gotten done so far today is the synopsis for BB. It was eatin’ at me that I didn’t go ahead and finish that with the actual book. It’s done now. Oh, and I printed a copy of Amara’s Prayer for the author who said he’d read it for a blurb. It’ll go in the mail to him tomorrow.
Sun’s going down. The almost-full moon is rising. Temperature inside the house is down to 85 F. The girls will have the hardest time sleeping tonight — no ceiling fan in their room.
I have a ton of e-mail to answer. I should do some of that.
