No swim for you!

Alas another no swim day... Work kicked its ass today. I probably could have gone but I would have been so stressed about getting back to finish that I don't think it would have been worth it so I didn't go.

Then, it turned out that I probably could have as the work that I thought was about 2 hours more did not have nearly the errors in the last bit that I expected and I got done earlier than I thought. But, it's ok. I am done and that's the biggie.

Sheri sent me a note about bring the grommets on Tuesday and I had to tell her that unless she wanted to do it by flashlight after hauling ass up 8 flights of stairs then Tuesday would not be the best.

I did take the opportunity to share with her my electricity concern - the circuit breaker break. I told her that I was going to check the a/c and if that broke it when the lights were on then we were in trouble. She 'got it' fast and allowed as how if that was the case, we'd get Walker (the electrician) on it asap. I appreciate her 'we will fix it' attitude. I really really do.

Ok. Now. Back to work - to finish up one bit and then I might just do the A/C test to get it off my mind.

testing testing testing... the electricity du casa.
I have all everyday things plugged in and I just plugged in the air conditioner to see if the new lights/outlets/etc with the A/C will trip the switch... (the vacuum, yesterday, blew the breaker and while I can certainly live without vacuum (plus I have a battery powered one that works great), I cannot live without the A/C)
So far, no blowouts... I'm going to let it run for about 10 mins before I declare victory. Fingers crossed.

Whew... free to cool

I managed to get all caught up with work early! So I rolled out the A/C which, true to history, bruised my big toe (already bruised this year so it will soon be technicolor). I got it out and plugged it in and turned it on.

I turned the new lights up all the way. I turned them off. I turned them on. I waited 10 mins while the A/C ran at top speed and then turned the lights off again and back on and everything worked fine.

I'm perfectly fine with no vacuum. I have a great cordless job that really works well. I'll get Amira to use that instead.

I do hope this is not just a temporary high... I really really really don't want to get to the 90 degree day and have no A/C. That would be the very definition of ugly. It really would.

Now I think I'll pop off to the Goodwill. I have a car full. Oh and I need gas.

I just picked up the phone to call someone and when they answered, I discovered that I have no voice. I hadn't spoken to anyone all day so I didn't even know. It happens every once in a while (due to Advair, I think) but usually I discover it earlier in the day. It's not fatal. I didn't have anything brilliant to say anyway.
