I feel so very blessed to have air conditioning. Every time I think about it, or use it, I THANK GOD for the blessing. Seriously. It is such a bonus on hot days...
I do, however, have a hard time turning it on. I see $ signs in my head turning as fast as they can. Click $ Click $ Click $ Click $
My husband, on the other hand, doesn't have a problem with it. Aside from the serious sweating problem he has, lol, he is quick to remind me that during the day he is forced to wear a uniform made out of dark BLACK canvas, big calf high BLACK steel toed boots, a heavy BLACK bullet proof vest, as well as a 15-20 pound BLACK gun belt. He thinks after wearing that around for 12 hours in the sweltering heat, he is entitled to using his air conditioning. This is where I insert .." Yeah, but..." and proceed with what I had to "wear" all day ( a three year old wanting to play baseball, a baby wanting to be picked up and cuddled, a six year old wanting to play tag..)
I called him this afternoon. I just HAVE to turn on the air. The baby hasn't had a nap because she's just too hot. She's been crying for an hour. (which is VERY UNUSUAL for this child who loves her naps!!) Was there anything I needed to do before turning it on.?
(I love him to bits..but lets be honest) this stubborn, sometimes selfish, I LIKE IT COLD, man says "well..if you have to, go for it. Maybe we'll be able to cool it down and turn it off tonight."
Somewhere along the 11 years of marriage we seem to have switched sides...
Turn it off?
