Retirement is a week filled with Saturdays and Sundays interrupted only occasionally by a holiday.

It Couldn't Fail In Winter?

The air conditioning repairman (or should I say "boy") came this morning bright and early (now that's a first) and took a look at the fan unit in the hallway. As suspected, the fan needs to be replaced and Boy Tech left promising to call us within a few hours after checking to see if he could lay his hands on the part. He called within an hour (will wonders never cease) with the unfortunate news that the part needs to be ordered and will not be in until Wednesday or Thursday. Yikes!!! The weather report is for increased temperatures into the 100's by tomorrow with no cooling trend in the near future so we will continue to roast for several more days.

The good news (if there is any) is that I'm scheduled to work on Wednesday and Thursday so I will be able to escape this hot box. I haven't worked since May and I was a little apprehensive about training again after such a long time but now I'm so thankful to have someplace cool to go that I'm actually looking forward to the challenge of work. See...I told you I keep looking for the silver lining.

have faith that the air conditioning will be repaired soon. I never thought I would hear you cheer about working though.

Now I'm confused: are you or are you not retired? Back in the library world?

I hope you get a cool spell sooner rather than later.

It's always a part that they have to order, always.

My car battery died yesterday while I was out running errands with my five year old...I was glad that I got a an auto parts store and they had the right battery and put it in for me. In the 111' heat! So I know where you're coming from.

Two more days...two more days...! You can do it!
