I sent the kids outside while I waited for the HVAC technician the other day because they were literally driving me crazy.
We were on vacation at this beach house, and all of a sudden the air conditioning system stopped working.
Even though it is the off season, and the weather is not as hot as it normally would be, it was still pretty warm down there where we were staying. As the temperature outside continued to rise, so did the temperature inside of the house. Even though we had the windows open and it was breezy from the ocean, it was still too warm in there for me. I couldn’t get the air conditioning to come on, and we were all feeling annoyed and grumpy because none of us can sleep well whenever it’s hot in the house. Even though it wasn’t my house and we were just renting the place, I still decided to call up the local HVAC company so that we could get the air conditioning fixed. there was no way that I was going to stay there for another two weeks without having a working air conditioning system. The day that they were supposed to come to fix the A/C unit, the kids were driving me absolutely crazy. None of us had slept well and they were fighting and complaining to each other constantly. The HVAC technician wasn’t supposed to arrive at the house until 11am, but at 10am I sent the kids down to the beach to build a sand castle alone because I could not stand to have them in the house any longer!
