Saturday night our air conditioner went out. Yep that is right, day 2 with no air!! It is a cool 87 degrees downstairs and 89 up. I am praying that when the A/C man gets here he will be able to fix what ever is wrong and we will have air tonight!! Reagan has been sleeping in our room the past two nights since there is no fan in her room. We have had Nathan come to our room in the middle of the night and Emily the first night and Maddie last night. The fans are on all over the house and we have a box fan that travels from room to room with the kids. I am tired and starting to get a headache from the heat. We are drinking lots of water and trying to stay cool. We have had multiple offers to come to others homes to sleep, but there is just something about being in your own house. Plus, Paul and I are not one to impose on anyone, we have trouble asking for help and accepting it when it is offered. The kids are handling the heat VERY well!! They play upstairs and complain hardly at all. I have to say that it is hot in here, but it is not as bad as you may think. Once you get past the constant sweating it is not too bad. If you sit under the fan you get a cool breeze that helps to keep you comfortable as well. we are surviving and will survive, just have to wait and hear what the repair man says!!
