Now I keep the air high compared to most people to save energy. I usually set the thermostat between 78-79, keep the blinds shut, and keep the ceiling fans running. If you don't in Florida, your energy bill will be astronomical. But I knew even 84 was high for us. Especially when the temp was still set for 79.
Turns out we had a leak in one of the coils in the air handler. $1,000 of our money at the most inconvenient time: when we are about to go on vacation and have homestudy fees to pay. It could be worse. The part could not have been covered under warranty - which, laugh with me here, expires in exactly one week. The leak could have been in the unit itself, which would mean we need an entire new unit.
I have to laugh. Because this IS the sort of thing that happens to us. It still sucks. Royally.
In better news:
- My prolactin levels are down. I have another blood draw tomorrow morning to check them again. Hoping they continue to drop! All of the blood work they ran on my thyroid also came back normal, so we've ruled out any issues there.
- My MIL and FIL have graciously offered to buy our nursery furniture. I never got around to reordering the crib, so this is excellent news. They'll be buying us a crib and a changing table. The first official "gifts" for the baby.
- It looks like my courses for the fall semester will be easier than previous semesters, and I only have classes one night a week (on Mondays). I can't believe I'm one more semester away from graduating. I feel like I just started yesterday.
- The paperwork is almost complete. I realize I keep writing this, but I mean it this time. We only have four pages left of the self study and the employer verifications to complete, which means it could be in the mail in the next week. AH!
What's going on in every else's world?
