I try and keep a positive attitude about pretty much everything. Even when the cards are stacked against me I still try and see some good in the situation. It may not sound like it at times but it's the truth. No matter what the circumstance is, it could always be worse.
But I tell ya, man I just can't catch a break. We had it all planned out to go to Fredericksburg next weekend for their Green living conference. I was able to set a little money aside to drive the five hours down there. We planned to eat sandwiches and sleep in a tent just to be able to afford to go.
Now I have to cancel because my AC went out in the house last night and this is not going to be a quick fix like the well was. The temperatures are still in the upper 90's during the day and low 80's at night.
All I was wanting to do was to get away for one day.
I don't mind sleeping with the windows open and the fans going. As a matter of fact, I prefer it that way. Tonight though, a skunk sprayed the house right outside the window and the smell is so strong it is burning my eyes even as I write this.
Go ahead and laugh, someone has to.
Needless to say, the money for the next chick order is also going to fix the AC. The part inside the house is what went out and even if we could suffer through this last month or so of hot weather, that same part is also used by the furnace so it won't work either to help keep us warm this winter.
I just want a little luck, that's all.
