I Miss Air Conditioning.


We finally had our first showing today, and as we were all rushing about trying to make everything look like a museum, Kevin and I commented to each other how warm the house seemed. It is supposed to be the hottest day of the year so far, but something didn't seem right. Kevin checked the vents.

No air coming on.
And a suspicious burning-type smell in the basement where the furnace resides.

Uh-oh.


You have to admit: the timing is pretty funny. Ah, well...now we're praying for a quick and relatively inexpensive a/c repair. Meanwhile, the little ones are napping in their skivvies and the olders are in the basement. It's not too bad, if you hang out in front of a fan.... :)

Oh No!!! And on your first showing day!! I hope it's a quick fix and an inexpensive one. If you need to cool off, you know the offer stands anytime. And we'll be gone next week, so I can give you a key and you can have OUR house to yourself...with working A/C. (Though it is quite a bit smaller for your family!) :)

Oh no!!! I hope it is a quick fix!!!

Thankfully, we were able to get the a/c fixed this afternoon. Nothin' makes you thankful for what you have like having to do without it for a little while!

Liz said...

Oh no! Did you have to cancel the showing?

Dana said...

Glad you got it fixed! Our AC went out the week we moved....if it would have waited another week we wouldn't have had to pay for it! I'm with you about appreciating it when you don't have it awhile (especially in the humidity of KC!).

Thankfully, no, we didn't have to cancel the showing. At 10:30, it wasn't too unbearable in the house yet. (That happened at about 4:30!) I think the realtor is going to bring the couple back this weekend. Yay!

Dana, that is funny that you had to fix your a/c right before you sold your house, too! Well...I suppose it didn't seem too funny at the time. :) Looking forward to seeing you guys next week!

You have a beautiful family indeed!
