Some days I am ever so thankful we don't own a home, and today was one of those days. I woke up around 8 this morning to pee, and when I got up I thought... hmmm, it's awfully warm in here... so I checked the thermostat. Sure enough, it was almost 80 in here. The AC was dead. I was annoyed, but immediately thankful for two things: 1. That we cleaned in here over the weekend and didn't have a bunch of stuff to do before we could call maintenance. 2. That all I had to do was call maintenance and the problem would be taken care of for free.
The rental office opened at 9, although no one answered the phone til 9:30. I told her then that our AC was out and she said she would get them up here as soon as possible. Just before 10:30, they knocked on the door. I was shocked, I was expecting to wait at least into a long sweltery afternoon before they came. But there he was. Within 15 minutes he had the problem solved and was gone on his merry way. Which meant I could go back to bed, which is exactly what I did. I slept until 12:30 and felt considerably better on my second go around at waking up.
After I woke up at 8, while I was waiting for time to call the leasing office, I ate a breakfast burrito. Once I was done eating I mostly sat here struggling to stay awake until he came. Unfortunately a knock at the door won't wake me up, so I had to stay awake and wait. After I woke up from my nap I had a veggie burger.
Then I did some productive things, like call insurance companies for quotes for the new car and gather laundry for dh to do this evening. Along with checking store ads and coupon websites. I had planned to be more physically productive, clean something or do something, but calling insurance companies took a while and I just sort of ran out of time.
When it was time to wake dh up, we ate stir fry with brown rice. Tons of veggies, a little chicken and some brown rice. Very yummy. Then we had to go to the library and to Walgreens. After we got home from that, dh took the laundry down to the laundry room and put it in to wash while I started working on the grocery list and menu.
Later I had a grilled cheese samich and tomato soup. After that I just sat here and talked to my mom while I waited for the laundry to finish. Then when he brought it upstairs, I got up and put the laundry away and then went into the kitchen and did a load of dishes. For some reason... maybe TOM, or who knows... my back was hurting BAD by the time I was done with the dishes. I did get them all in and got the dishwasher started, though, so it was a success. Afterward I came and sat down to give my back a break.
I'm debating mentioning to my dr that I'm having a lot of back problems when I see her in a couple weeks, but if I do she will just give me muscle relaxers, and I already have those. I guess I'll see how it's doing when the appointment rolls around.
Tomorrow is grocery day. Before we go I'm going to clean out the fridge and unload the dishwasher and get it ready for any dishes. I'm happy to say no real cleaning needs to be done in the kitchen, usually t hat's on the list too. After dh wakes up we will head out to the stores and get the things we need. Hopefully without the car breaking down. We are eating dinner out somewhere, but I don't know where yet.
For the rest of tonight I'm just going to relax with my book. All my chores are done for the day.
Hope everyone had a happy Hump Day!
