On Saturday, I didn't want to go anywhere

She was playing dirty at that point

Saturday is the only day that I really have off from work because Sunday I go to church and spend the day with the kids and my wife. We do family activities and have fun together. It’s really the only time I see them throughout the week. Last Saturday my wife wanted me to go to the zoo with her and the kids. I had on my comfortable shorts and a soft cotton t-shirt. I planned to grab a six pack of beer and sit down in front of the television and the air conditioner. I was going to watch a couple of the games on television while I enjoyed the cold air and the cold beers. When I told my wife that this was my plan, she frowned. I love the children and I love her, but I have to have time to myself to recuperate from the week at work. I know that my wife understands that. When I protested a second time, she sent the children into the house to convince me to go. It was hard to argue with their smiling faces. She was playing dirty at that point. She promised that I could come home and relax later if I went to the zoo for a couple of hours. I agreed to go and I put off my relaxing staycation at home for a couple of hours. On the way home from the zoo we stopped at a gas station so I could grab a six pack of beer and I spent the afternoon sitting in front of the television and the air conditioner watching football.

The problem was a simple fix and no big deal

I woke up yesterday and I was very uncomfortable.

I knew there was a problem with the air conditioner.

I never wake up uncomfortable and I immediately got up and put on a pair of pants and a shirt. I walked out into the living room to look at the thermostat. It was still set to 73°, but the temperature seemed to be much warmer than that. This apartment has a dial thermostat, so I don’t have any idea how warm or cold it actually is in the house. The only thing I know is what the thermostat is set to. I had a set for 76 degrees and it easily felt like it was 90. It was actually colder outside. I opened the front door for a little while and then I contacted an AC repair service. I contacted the preferred provider that usually works on my equipment. They know the system very well and can troubleshoot the problem over the phone. I told the guys exactly what was happening with the AC unit. The company sent a technician to look at the air conditioner. The problem turned out to be a simple fix and no big deal at all. I thought there was a huge problem, but the real issue was the thermostat. The thermostat had to be replaced with something that was newer. The repair technician told me that the date on the back of the thermostat was 1987. It was probably original to the building. We both laughed about the old temperature control dial.

The kids trashed the place

My husband and I retired early.

We bought a small house on the lake and we rented our old house instead of selling it. Renting the place would mean long-term income and it was in the heart of the city by the college and close to shopping. The house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. A college student with really good credit wanted to rent the place and he had three roommates that were going to rent the bedrooms. I made out a lease for this unique situation, giving each one of the tenants rights on the lease as well as responsibilities for their portion of the rent. 3 months after the boys moved into the place, one of the tenants moved out suddenly. I told the boys to find someone else to rent the room, but they decided to split the difference and keep the room empty. That was fine with me as long as they were paying the rent on time. Unfortunately, there came a time when the boy stopped paying rent all together. Their lease was going to be up in 3 months. I handed those kids everyday to pay their rent and I never saw a single dime from them. When I evicted them, they left a huge mess in the house and the central AC unit was broken. I honestly don’t know if the broken AC was their responsibility or not. I had no way of knowing, but I was still upset that they left the house in such poor conditions. I kept their entire security deposit to pay for the repairs to the AC unit.

I told the customer to clean and sanitize

The indoor air quality inside of your home is often worse than the air quality outside.

Allergens, germs, pollen, and dust end up inside of your home and they have nowhere to go after that. It’s important to have clean air, especially in situations where your family has issues like asthma, allergies, or respiratory distress. A customer contacted me last month to clean and sanitize her ductwork. I advised the woman that this was the best way to get rid of most of the allergens in the home. I also advised her to buy some type of air purifier or air filtration system. She did not feel that her budget wanted for either one of those items but she did schedule the ductwork cleaning and sanitizing. I made sure to scrub every nook and cranny of the ductwork for the customer. I wanted her to be totally and completely satisfied with the product that she received. A couple of days after I finished the job, I received another call from a customer that got my name from the same woman that I worked on earlier that week. This woman asked if she could get a free estimate for ductwork cleaning services. She was in the same neighborhood as the other woman so I agreed to a free estimate and consultation. I recommended cleaning and sanitizing the ductwork to that customer as well and she scheduled the service for next monday. Sometimes word of mouth advertising is even better than spending a fortune for a website and social media presence.

It’s hard to be comfortable without a good HVAC system

Well, you won’t hear myself and others talk about cryptos anymore because Bitcoin is in a downward spiral that seems to be picking up speed and I don’t want to watch our currency drop anymore.

I’ll wait until it bottoms out and then jump back in again.

I had $90K a couple weeks ago and now it has been cut in half to $45K, not such a fantastic feeling to lose that much currency. It should come back though if I can grab it again near the lowest point, which may be numerous weeks down the road. Today, every one of us is going to the local service provider to get some energy saving tips for the warm season to try and cut down on our power usage with the heating, ventilation and A/C system. We have a sizable front family room and numerous bathroom houses and it takes a big amount of energy to cool this place down, so every one of us would like to see if there is something every one of us can do to trim down the power bills. This house gets a lot of sunshine and heats up while I was in the day quite a bit and it seems like the numerous sizable commercial A/C units have to run way too much to keep the place even moderately cool. I need to ask our stepmom how much she spends on cooling costs while I was in the warm season so I can tell this to the heating, ventilation and A/C specialists to see if it seems like a normal price for cooling a house down of this size. Maybe every one of us just needs to move into a smaller house and be more European.

I finally got a ductless mini split for my bedroom

My study room is pretty tepid at night so I feel I am going to buy a ductless mini chop A/C component to help keep me cool.

I have a ceiling fan in the room but it pretty much just blows hot air onto me when I am trying to sleep.

I feel they sell them at the local company for about $200 so I may just shoot down there this month and grab a single. I don’t have a lot of money in the bank now because I put it all in plum stock, which took a dive lately and seems to be in the perfect spot for customers to savor me. But I feel I can swing paying for a small portable a/c because sleep is easily crucial for fine health. I am in a study room which faces the afternoon sun which heats the room up easily suddenly in the afternoon. I also need to wear an eye mask because it is as bright as a dentist’s office here in the afternoon. I’m going to ask my stepmom if she can lower the smart thermostat to 81F at night so I can actually sleep better, but if she can’t then I am going to run down to the local company and buy a small fan first before buying the portable A/C unit. I feel I can get a fan for about $20, which will greatly enhance the quality of my sleep, so I may just buy a single anyway to keep me cooler. I don’t want my stepmom to have to pay more for air conditioning while I am staying here.
