Life Without A/C, or, Pregnancy and Heat Makes Me a Wimp

Posted on: September 15, 2011

Countless times, I’ve started a post this week, only to erase it. You see, I tend not to write {or twitter or facebook} in the midst of challenge. And well, our A/C gave out this weekend. So in my little world, this week has been a real challenge. Being 8 months pregnant, in Texas, during the hottest recorded summer, is not the time to have your A/C go kaput. And while most of America is getting ready for fall, we had 4 record high days out of 5 during our A/C fiasco. Oh, that crazy Texas.

The house temp right after the repairman left. Awe-some.

But you know what? Our family is blessed beyond blessed. After the A/C died on Saturday, we stayed with some friends that live on our street. Because the repairs to the A/C required speciality parts, the repairman wasn’t able to fix the unit until last night. For 5 nights and 4 days, our friends graciously housed us. It was a really wonderful time. Our kids are all close in age, so they thought our stay was a constant party. The adults got a chance to learn even more about each other and grow in our friendship. And if you don’t think our friends are awesome just for letting us stay with them, they actually still like us by the end of it {which just goes to show how great they really are!}.

By 5pm on Wednesday, our A/C was back up and running. It took through the night before the house completely cooled off. But, Jonathan and I were laughing before bed about how 82* seems cool compared to 90*+, especially when there’s air blowing in the house. Though, part of me is a little temped to turn the air down to the low 60’s just because I can.

 

I’m ever so happy to have a cool house again. What “fun” adventures have you had this week?

Oh my gosh, I didn’t realize you’d been without AC all week! I am so sorry. But what a great way to get to know your friends better 🙂 I’m glad it’s all fixed and I hope you get some cool Fall weather soon!

So glad things worked out! I have definitely been hoping for better days for you!

Seems like your last post was about needing to be alone and recharge. Guess the big man had better plans and you seem much happier now even after staying with your friends for so many days.

Thank goodness the air conditioning is fixed! Here, we’ve been using the furnace already at night :P!
