Back to work…which went just about as I thought it would. 1001 emails, literally. And really, only 1001 because a co-worker waded through some of the junk for me. Piles of papers all over my desk, each person left their own pile, lol. Crazy, but I tread water all day, and stayed above the surface.
However, with the perfect timing only the universe can achieve, I walked into the office and had not even made it to my desk when my son called to tell me something happened to the AC, and water was spraying around the basement. He shut it off, but it still sprayed so he shut off the furnace.
Let me add that the temperature was 95° F today.
It seemed to be a return line on a pump for the central air that a fitting broke on. I called the furnace people, since the pump said it was for use on furnaces. Made no sense to me. But I scheduled them to come out tomorrow morning. For a $100 diagnostic fee and then the cost of repair. I’m thinking $300. And no AC tonight, meaning I probably would get very little sleep.
Then I texted my best friends husband and asked him what he thought it would cost me. He said $140 plus labor. But that he thought he had the fitting, and would come over tonight and see if it was the right one. So….when I got home at 7:45 he came over and it took him less than 10 minutes to save me $300.
That’s a good friend. This man is like a brother to me. He’s fixed my snowblower twice, he came over with a chainsaw after a storm and cut out my broken shrubs. This is why I say I am blessed. I have loving family, and loving friends that treat me like family.
At the end of the day, my house is cooling down. All in a day’s work.
