Hot Days, No A/C

The misadventure that has pervaded the past couple weeks just got more misadventurous. Yesterday, shortly after finishing my last post I went into the kitchen to wash some lettuce for the rabbit and heard the a/c out back making a terrible noise. Now, our a/c has already given out twice in the past 3 weeks so you can imagine how nervous this made me.

I called right away down to the office. The gal came up to hear it for herself and called up the maintenance man to get his take. He didn't know so she said she would contact the a/c guy and see if he could come by in the next day or two. She offered to bring me a window air unit for the bedroom in case the a/c gave out overnight, which I decided was a great idea. By the time she got back the a/c was making an even worse sound, had stopped working and our apartment was already 80 degrees.

While I've been very thankful for the window unit, this just isn't what I needed. It was over 100 degrees yesterday and today is the same story. I've been camped out in the bedroom with the animals, my meds and Netflix. Sounds like we'll be getting a new a/c unit at some point today but it's already 1:30pm so I imagine I'll end up in here most of the day.

This whole thing has distracted us all from the critters living in the wall and I'll be gone all next week so I guess that won't get dealt with for a couple weeks. sigh


  1. When it rains it pours my dear. Actually, rain would at least cool it off some! Hopefully this will be fixed ASAP.

  2. A couple of weekends ago we were without a/c for 3 days! It was high 90's in my living room! We went and stayed at Jesse's parents. I totally feel for you sucked...big time!
