It all started last Thursday morning when I noticed the air-conditioner wasn't working well. I called my husband who called our warranty people while we went to the park-etc. When we got back home it was up into the 80's in the house -I got the fans out and talked to my husband again -he said the soonest they could get someone out is Monday -5days! Later when my husband got off work him and a coworker looked at a few things with the air-conditioner -they put in a new filter -etc. We even left the air-conditioner off overnight to see if the in-line pipe needed to defrost -Still no luck.
Friday I was planning to get things ready for a garage sale anyways so, that's primarily what we did. I guess the ironic part is we have a window unit in the garage so, it was cooler in there while we were getting things organized.
Saturday we had the garage sale -we did pretty well -I figured most of it would go to the deductible/co-pay for the air-conditioner repair now though.
Sunday I thought it would be a good idea to see Toy Story 3 since we did have a free ticket from buying Toy Story 2 and it would be somewhere cool to go. But,before we went my sister called with computer problems. We all went over there to be in her air-conditioning while my husband fixed her computer. It took longer than expected -a few hours. We had to rush to see the 3:45 showing of the movie -It was a pretty good movie though. Then we picked up some food to eat and made our way back home.
Monday -Finally the repairman came around 11:30am. He had to go get the part -etc. and would be back -It was also then that we argued with our warranty people. They were saying since we had the access panel -etc. off they weren't going to cover it- What?! The tech. said the problem was the motor and we assured him and our warranty people we did not touch the motor! They were trying to say we messed it up somehow- When we didn't! Obviously we wouldn't mess with a working air-conditioner in the middle of summer in Oklahoma! We only tried a few simple trouble-shooting things after we called them and after they said it would be 5 days before they could get someone out! So, instead of it costing less than $100 it costs over $350! I am so mad at American Home Shield right now! -I already talked to a supervisor,put in a complaint via consumer complaint website, and sent them a letter. I have also since learned they have a history of denying claims they should cover -there was even a class action suit against them because of that! If you have American Home Shield -Be Warned!!
So, I've been dealing with all that...
Today I was getting out of the funk -I got up - Checked a few things on the computer and was thinking I might do something different for breakfast -Maybe blend a smoothie or cook some eggs and ham - Until ... Everything flickered a couple times and then the power went out -The 1st thought I had was - Great -we do need to pay them. I had to search for flashlights -etc. Finally found them and found an electric bill -We do need to pay them but,it's due today -not late yet so, it shouldn't be turned off. (Since the air-conditioner repair took all our $ -We'll have to pay it Friday) so, I called the outage in. The kids had cereal -I thought well, I'll have my usual bagel -but, Ugh -I can't even toast it- So, I had an untoasted bagel. Then it's like Hmmm -Can't get on the computer/internet,don't have the cool air-conditioning we just got fixed,can't even have fans going -So many things you can't do when the electric isn't working -Urgh! Then a little bit later the power came on- I guess it was only out for about an hour -But, it was a horrible way to start the day - Just Ugh!

But, especially after awhile there's a few things I'd like to do. Take for instance the kid's/guest bathroom I did recently change things -to a different "theme" it used to be all about the sea -a shower curtain w/fish, a sea/fish toothbrush holder, a sea/fish handtowel,-etc. Now it's polka dots!-with similiar colors blue,white and green to kinda go with some of the stuff we already have. Another thing is that it's a small bathroom -it's arranged a lot different than our other bathroom. In fact we don't have a regular TP roll holder -some because of the way it's arranged there isn't a place to put 1. I don't know if we should redo things and get a new vanity -maybe someday. For now we just have a cylinder type TP roll holder -which by the way brings up another thing-has anyone noticed that most of the TP you find in the stores now is all double roll or even triple roll?! Which do not fit into our cylinder TP holder-Urgh! The other day I felt like I was on some crazy Seinfeld episode on a quest to find regular TP rolls -LOL! Well, anyways -I'm sure there are other things I'd like to change but, I guess I went on a little bathroom rant and don't know what all else to say for now - Except hope everyone has a Good Weekend!

I only wish I was talented enough to make something like that - We'll probably just go out for lunch with my dad,husband/family. What all will you do for Father's Day?

I must have a pretty bad memory because I don't remember a lot about the movie or anything -I do know at the end of our date we kissed. And from there as they say the rest is history -we started hanging out a lot -he met my baby daughter and wasn't scared off by the whole situation. And soon enough we were married. I may not have completed all the classes to become a radiologist -but instead met my husband :)

Luckily, we had some time to calm down before going to take my daughter to her Dr's appt. for her Hashimoto's . After the endocrinologist checked her out ; she got lab work done -to see if the medicine is working(I got a call yesterday -her levels are still abnormal and we'll try increasing her dosage and get checked out again in a few weeks)
After the appt. I planned to have an outing anyways-We went to Chick-Fil-A for dinner-I love that place! I let my son play -he's not the most social person -But, there was 1 boy that he actually started to play with! They introduced themselves and my son actually asked if he wanted to be best friends-It was so cute! Then the other boy burped and they thought that was hysterical- leave it to boys to bond over burping ;) Unfortunately that little boy did say a few "bad" words -Not directed at my son-But, he said things like -"Stupid poopy head" and I think I heard him say -"Damn" I tried to discourage it by saying that's not nice and luckily my son followed my lead on that. Then after a few minutes his mom came in and he had to leave - I guess It was nice while it lasted . Reminded me of this video I saw -Except for in my son's case it might go like -Chick-Fil-A -Where I met my best friend today. We only got to play for a few minutes -before he had to go away -Oh Chick-Fil-A-Aaaa.
I guess I'll end this roller-coaster rambling with the video I'm referring to -It's hilarious!
