The new units remind me of the "ET" movie, can we say R2D2. Ha They are twice the size of our old ones. It was LOVE at first sight, or should I say love at first puff of COLD air
I have decided I am no longer overwhelmed by all this craziness over the summer. I am now just in shock to the point of laughing out loud over each new hick - up that comes our way. Not sure if the change of heart is because I have lost my marbles or if sitting on the new couch in the comfort of 72 degrees central air makes things seem not so bad after all.
There is a cost to all of this comfort....
By waiting for 2 months and 2 days in the sweltering NC heat we will receive $2,600.00 in rebates as well as a $350.00 federal and state tax credit. That rebate will be used towards the MANY other "Must Do's" around the house. I sooo wish it would be enough to cover all that has to be done but unfortunately it won't come close :( Was it worth the wait? You betcha, $2,600.00 ain't chump change.
The next BIG TICKET item on our must do list is windows. We have finally received the estimate for the job. sigh..If Kara will cooperate tomorrow I will go by the showroom to see what the windows look like that he is suggesting. The owner of the company has already forewarned me that the new windows can't hold a candle to the double pane solid wood windows we have now :(. However we won't have to worry about wood rot or constant painting every few years.
Time to call it a day. AJ the beagle and I are going to enjoy a cup of tea, maybe a cookie or two, who am I kidding, I will eat all I want!! AJ can FINALLY curl up under her quilt now that the house is nice and cool.
