Questions, Etc.

  The AC is fixed....almost two months to the day.  It's an enormous unit and was exceptionally loud when the air clicked on.  It has a thermostat so sometimes the fan runs and then the air clicks on.  The AC unit was so loud we had to keep the tv up super loud.  At the beginning of each summer, it would take me a couple of weeks to get used to the noise it made.

I have a Philco compressor in there now.  I kept asking them if they had the air on and not just the fan.  It's quiet and lol unnerving because I keep thinking the air isn't working right.  OCD again....  They said the Philco compressor is much quieter than the Kenmore.  Now, if this isn't a gift horse, I don't know what is.  Besides my AC always needing serviced, it was LOUD.  So, I keep running outside to make sure that it's as cool in here as before.  Yep, I have some severe OCD problems at times.  My old car seems to be running ok again so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm going back to work tomorrow.  I actually think I'm ready to.  I need a break from the drama at home.  For some reason, the pool is nice but not as addicting as it used to be.  Could be my quarterly visits to the dermatologist have something to do with that.

We spent the whole afternoon in the pool today...picture perfect sky.  Megan had some friends over and Joey and I just joined in.  I hadn't seen a couple of the guys since they were "young" ones in high school.  Of course, they all love Grizzly so he was eating it up.

 

I'm stealing these questions off of Penny coz I think they're neat:

I HATE nothing.  I strongly dislike but don't hate

I RARELY read anymore although I was a bookworm

I CRY less frequently than I used to which I don't think is necessarily a good thing

I AM NOT one bit organized

I LOSE my mind almost every day

I`M CONFUSED by computers lol this is Penny's but I am confused by everything technological

I NEED peace of mind

I SHOULD clean my house

I AM very loving

I WANT more money (ok, I'm stealing Penny's again)

I HAVE a roof above my head and food on my table everyday

I WISH I wouldn't fret and fuss so much

I SEARCH for my keys continuously and my work ID

I WONDER if I`ll ever be self-sufficient financially

I REGRET that I didn't leave my ex before I did

I LOVE my three children more than life itself

I ACHE for the hurt, pain and worries that my children have

I USUALLY sleep on the couch because I have insomnia

I DANCE every chance I get to and probably look like the biggest fool

I SING but sound like fingernails scratching a chalkboard

I NEVER say never because I've eaten my words too many times

 

Hopefully, the drama is going to end soon.  Thank you all for being there and your wonderful support.  Love each and every one of you............

No friggin way....the AC is finally fixed?  Pony Express arrived before Christmas well slap my sista!  Hey, stay away from the dermatologist, he's cutting in on your pool time......HELLO!

love to you too, Chris. So happy the AC is finally fixed :)

Seems like a great afternoon you had with kids and all by the pool. I know what you mean about sun/dermatologists. Lots of tanned people here and I wonder if they would be THAT tanned if they had someone they knew develop skin cancer.

Loved your answers; especially the "never" one. Our old pastor used to say the same thing - he would say "don't ever think you wouldn't do that because chances are you probably will".

enjoy your day back to work tomorrow

Hey Chris.  You do seem a lot happier today that lately, and I am happy for that.  I don't like when you are sad.  Thanks for sharing everything though.  I hope it makes you feel better.  Talk to you soon.

Thanks for visiting my journal and I am glad you like the rock formation.    Some things are timeless and give calm to the senses.    I try to incorporate all the senses from anxiety to serenity.   There is a balance in there somewhere.    We are trying to line up the window frames so that they will accept the siding when it is added in the final stage.    I thought we had everything correct and then I looked at it tonight and realized that I had planned it wrong.   So now I have to go back and redo the framing on several windows.    Learning through trial and error is an education.    My back has been in pain and I am not letting it stop me from continuing by letting the person helping me do the work.    I rested today and this afternoon we got some more of the work accomplished.    Now we have to go back and correct the mistake.    It is all part of the process.    mark
