HDH - 14


If you want to know what this is about click here.



When Leland and I bought our house 5 years ago, the home inspector told us that the existing central A/C unit worked just fine. A few days after we moved in the temperature hit over 90 degrees. No worries, we thought, we’ll just turn on the super convenient central air. It only took us an hour to realize that it wasn’t working. After calling someone to come and look at it, we got a quote for nearly $4000.00 to have it fixed. Apparently it wasn’t just broken, it was shot. There would be no saving it.

So we haven’t replaced it. For the past 5 summers we have sweltered in the heat, taken cold showers and brought ice cubes to bed. Naturally though, we were WAY too hot to even think about touching each other. When it was over 85 degrees sex was something that we never even considered. Now we just can’t afford to not be having sex.

We just installed a window A/C unit in our bedroom. Now we can actually sleep without waking up covered in our sweat. AND it is actually possible to do other things in our bed aside from sleeping. Like shagging. Lots and lots of shagging. Since the rest of the house is hotter than ever, I expect that we will want to spend a lot of time in our bedroom. And you all know what that means.

LMAO...

I bet Willis Haviland Carrier, the dude that invented the air conditioner, never foresaw that he'd be helping you and Leland exercise a hundred years later.

Enjoy your summer =)

I love that the only reason you got a window unit was so you guys could have sex without becoming dehydrated.

You guys are neat.

I have 2 window units in my home - living room and bedroom. My hubby was a smart man and installed the bedroom one after one night of me sleeping in the living room because of the heat. [note: hubby could care less about AC]

Shagging. Classic. I have a board game called Dump, Shag, or Marry.

Maybe you can play that in your cool bedroom also?

The Only Girl said...

Yay for window a/c units!

Kim said...

That sucks! About your air condition! Can you go after a home inspector for f-ing up that bad? A non-working air conditon is not exaclty what he promised you! What's the point of paying for an inspection if they don't actually I don't know INSPECT!?

I have no idea how you survived that long without any ac! Painful! I'm glad you guys at least have the windown unit in the bedroom now! Here's to a much more enjoyable and cooler summer!!

The Random Blogette said...

I agree with Kim. I would've went after that inspector! Way to go getting a window unit for the bedroom. Shag on!

You should have gone after the home inspector... they have to warranty their work... We just bought a house in January, and found the deck a little wobbly. Over the weekend we were under the deck, and the main support beam isn't even attached to the deck! There is a 1/2" gap between the beam and the deck posts. Except for the one the has a bunch of little wood shims shoved in the gap... because I am sure that is enough to stabilize the deck.

I can't believe the home inspector lied! That's awful! The owners totally should have paid for that!

Glad you found a solution. :)

Samantha said...

That's awful that you were told it worked and didn't; I guess you live and learn! I would be SO torn if that had happened to me because while it's a lot of money, I HATE being sweaty and hot, esp. in my own home. I bet you're really enjoying that unit in your bedroom. ;)

Tracy said...

I could not live without a/c!

Vodka Logic said...

Good point Intense guy and yes thank god for air conditioning

MiMi said...

This reminds me of our first house...we ate dinner in our room with the a/c!

carma said...

wooo-hoooo HDH lives on then plus you won't need to worry about prickly heat (does anyone even say that anymore :-O)

Cathy said...

That inspector sounds like a winner.

Sucks about the a/c, but at least you've figured out a temporary fix!

heartinhand said...

We don't have A/C. It's only warm enough for that maybe three days of the year. Thank god we have a basement though because when it is warm, that's where we go.

RN Mama said...

Thank God for A/C! Do you think you can make it to 100 this weekend?

P.S. Check my blog tonight, there is something fabulous for you. It has a little bit to do with shagging:)

Much More Than Mommy said...

I like how this could've been a total rant about the lameness of the home inspector but turned into a post about how determined y'all are to make it easier to get busy!!

I'm Jane said...

Atta girl...make up for lost time!

Aunt Juicebox said...

Well alright! Looks like things might be revving up! ;P

aladdinsane12 said...

I just got AC in my room, too! It is AMAZING! Nothing is worse than waking up dripping with sweat and stinking. Now let's see that ticker get higher!

kristi said...

Oh hellz no, no a/c for an entire summer???
