I have 4 fans to battle it with AND Katie graciously offered me accomodation for the evening but the repairman promised I'd be the first stop in the morning so I want to be on hand to see what the damage is. I'm currently going through my
random stacks of paper records to see if I can find the receipt from where I replaced the unit a couple of years ago. Not that it has a snowball's chance in hell of still being under warranty, but I'd just like to know.
I really wanted to get back in the car, drive to an air conditioned restaurant, and console myself with food I can't afford, but I battled it back. There's no need to punish myself for something I can't control. My mom has offered to pay for the repairs since I can't. As often as we disagree and for all the fights we've had about horrible things in the past, I don't know what I'd do without her. I'll just tell her to consider this my Christmas and birthday presents combined.
This incident just goes to reiterate how much harder I need to work at some sort of nest egg. It's never really worked out for me in the past because something like this just keeps cropping up every time I think I'm approaching a level point. I seriously wish some of my petsitting clients would call. I have a couple of jobs lined up for Oct and Nov but that's just too far off to help me. I say that, but I don't want new clients. I just want the ones I already have to suddenly need to leave town for two weeks...on alternating schedules of course :-)
Doesn't anyone have a pet I can look after?
