Where Does The Time Go?


Every time I think I'm going to be back to blogging on a regular basis, something happens.  First I had a couple reviews/giveaways I had to post about this week, so that took up some time.  Then, we had some company over a few times this week, so we had to take more time straightening up things.  Then, the other night our A/C quit working and we didn't realize it until almost lunch time.

We called a few places and mostly got answering machines.  One guy said they could come the next day, but it was 89 degrees in the house, and we were dying!  Even the dogs were hot!  Someone finally called us back that afternoon and came within 30 minutes.  We were so thankful!  And very lucky that it was a part they had on hand and that we could afford to fix it.  It was just under a hundred dollars. 

It took until the next morning to get it cool again.  But, boy were we so thankful that it was cool again.  So, it was too hot to get online that day, so I didn't even think about getting on the laptop.

I won't promise I'll be back to blogging regularly until we get settled into more of a routine.  We're also getting ready to start homeschooling back, so that will take some getting used to.  But, I will be back!  I'm behind on reading blogs too, but I hope to get caught up by next week.  I still love y'all and appreciate you reading and I will be visiting soon!

Wow! You've had a lot on your plate lately, and I'm surprised that you even found the time to make this post! But... where's there's a will, there's a way. ;)

I hope things settle down for you soon, and I'm SO glad that you got your a/c running again! There's nothing worse than being run off your feet, and being hot to boot!

Glad you got the AC going and it didn't cost you an arm/leg. Never know what the out come can be.

I'm sure it's wild around there with every one. Maybe things wil settle in soon for you.

Nancy you are so sweet! Summer is always really crazy with all kinds of fun events and family. I am glad you have AC again. I can't imagine not having it. It has been sooooo hot here! Hot and humid!

Hope you have a great weekend! Come enter for my giveaway girl!

Sounds like you have been really busy!! Glad you got the A/C fixed....we had a similar situation, but fortunately, it started back cooling on its own...think there had been a power surge that knocked it off...

boy you have been busy. OUCH on the ac, I hate when stuff with the house goes wrong. Thankfully for me someone just tried breaking our new mailbox. (not a good thing but it isn't something that'll hurt us in the house) Hope your life begins calming down. Mine is about to get haywire since school starts up in two weeks but we still have a lot of checking in, buying the books, etc. So tempted to just homeschool mine. :) I miss it.

I can't imagine how they did it in the old days with no air conditioning. Perhaps slept on a screen porch?
