What a weekend!

Whew! What a weekend. Our plans were to stay home and hang out with a friend that is in town from Tulsa this weekend. I had plans to get lots of scrapping done and clean some house, do some laundry, etc. Well, not much of any of that happened. I got home Friday at 6 to a hot house. Yep, the AC went out again. Called the landlord and after a second call to the landlord the AC guy finally called. Around 10:30 pm Dude showed up and said the compressor was shot and he would be back first thing in the AM with a new unit. Well, Saturday around one pm we called said AC guy to see where in the heck he is. By the way, it was damn hot in here by that time and we were cranky due to loss of sleep (it was hot in here at night too). AC guy said that the parts house wanted to charge an extra $250 to open on a holiday weekend. My brother (he could have fixed/installed it for me) says they closed at Noon on Saturday and AC guy didn't get there in time to buy the unit. So AC guy brings out a "back up" unit and installs it; but they didn't bring enough freon to fill it up. Said they would go get some and be back in an hour. We went out to run some errands and hang out with out of town friend to let the house cool off. When we got home it was warm in the house. Brother said that the unit froze up because it didn't have enough freon in it. Called AC guy again, said his guys would be back first thing in the AM to fix. Sunday around 1pm, no AC guys. Called the AC guy to see where in the F they are. (yes we are getting tired of this). Said his guys would be heading out here in about an hour, said they would call us when they were on their way. So we went to breakfast, then to Starbucks to stay cool and mess around with stuff. They called and said they would be here in about thrity minutes. An hour and fifteen minutes later they finally show up. We finally have AC, slept really good last night. It was kind of cold in here, had to snuggle and turn the AC up when I got up. Tomorrow they are supposed to get a new unit and install it. We will see how that goes.

I did get to scrap a little, I finished one layout and used my Pirate Ship die on it. I still need to scan it so I will have to post it later. I also started another layout and am almost finished with it. Off to finish that one and hopefully start on my Halloween box for the swap I am in.
