It's Hotter Than...

Posted by Picasa

As any homeowner knows, when things begin to fail, they go in threes...if you're lucky. Well, first the valves broke on our sprinkler system over at My Ranchburger; then the built-in microwave blew; now it's the A/C at The Bungalow, during a record-breaking heatwave here in Houston.

The sprinkler system is repaired (only $300); the new microwave and oven will arrive Wednesday and be installed (just under a mere $3,000;) so today, we wait for Tom, our A/C man. We will be waiting right here on the shady end of the front porch with tall glasses of ginger-peach iced tea, praying for a cool breeze.

Wait...I hope it's not threes per house. Ooh!!! Put something stronger in our tea, Tall Husband.

P.M. Update: The A/C at The Bunny Bungalow is repaired. Tall Husband wrote the check...I didn't ask. It's so cool now!


  1. I am at the same place you are today!about the houses,the heat I wish I were!

  2. Oh no.... I hope for you sake it isn't each house either! Sending cool breezes your way.
    Hey, by the way, I saw your little bungalow in the "American Bungalow" magazine. Congrats !:)

  3. No A/C in Texas! I would consider that unacceptable at any time of the year and would have decamped promptly to a hotel. I'm a total heat wuss.

    I hope your A/C repair bill is reasonable.

  4. Oh my gosh this is a 911 emergency. It is really hot right now!
