I NEED Airconditioning!!!

Pin It Not really,,,but the heat just got to me this week.

The other day, as some of you know, my car battery died just when I was leaving Marshall's. The all too familiar tick, tick tick when turning on the ignition alerted me to a problem. I called hubby to come get me, which he soon did with jumper cables in hand. We then proceeded to search for the battery under his hood, which was hiding for some reason. He has an old Jaguar. I kid you not! Neither of us were able to find it.

So off we went, back home (cause I didn't want to stay by myself in a dark parking lot after hours) to get my son's SUV and back to give my car a boost. We managed to get the car started that time.

Yesterday I decided to take a mental health day. I decided it was too nice a day to spend it at the garage so I torched instead. I had the best time & will post pics in a day or 2 of the new beads I made. A fellow lampworker generously posted a wonderful tutorial which I had lots of fun playing with.

So, today, hubby took me for a new battery, but of course the car needed some other things so we wound up leaving it there. Upon my return I called to make an appointment for some scans for my mom. Lo & behold, they had an opening today! Which was good & bad! Good, because I had a free day. Bad, because the only car at my disposal was my son's SUV & the airconditioning isn't working in that car. :-(

With temps nearing 90, high humidity and a BLACK truck no less, I headed out to get my mother. Just as we got there, we hit a downpour. I then realized that my mom's handicap sticker was in my car at the garage. Thankfully a volunteer was dropping someone off when we pulled up & she let me use it for my mother.

Several hours later, with the scans all done, I drove my mom home & then came home to collapse. I took the longest shower I could before the hot water ran out. I feel ALMOST human. I NEED airconditioning!
