So as you can see from the picture, my air conditioner is on fire. Just kidding, it isn't on fire. Actually the opposite, kind of.
Here's the story. We get home around 8:00pm last night and it was hot in our house. Anybody who knows Billy at all knows this was immediately noticed and a major problem! We go to the thermostat and it is 80 degrees. That means the lower level of the house was 80. The upstairs was more like a million. Anyway, we venture to the basement to see what is going on to find out that the furnace has frozen. This happened some last summer too, but we aren't sure why. I went and picked up a new AC filter thinking that would help because it has before. We change the filter and leave the AC off until 10 or so giving it some time to thaw. Meanwhile every fan in the house is on and we are confined to the living room. Oh, and forget about using the stove, dishwasher, etc. So about 10:30 we realize the AC is not working and must still be frozen. We turn it off again and decide to just leave it off all night so we won't do damage that can't be fixed by thawing.
Leaving it off all night seemed like a good idea, but let me tell you, it was one hot night. And not in a good way! ha! We slept on our couch to stay on the lower level, which was sleep-able but not great. Add to that the dog in the middle of the couch and Billy's tendency to kick/punch/do ninja moves in his sleep and the heat. It was a crazy night! I thought once I fell asleep I would be fine, but no. Way hot. All. Night. Of course if I was hot, we all know Billy must have been way more miserable. I won't even go into that! haha
So currently, the AC is still off at the house. We are both at work (I'm blogging at work because I am still trying to cool down so I can concentrate!) and poor Laney is in her crate probably wondering why her mommy and daddy don't love her! If we get home and turn it on and it doesn't start working we are going to assume it is broken and probably go to my MIL's house. We aren't proud! Power outage or AC breaking are both legit excuses to flee to someone's house :) I'll keep you updated on this breaking story.
