i won't be on all day tomorrow. the stupid park where i live will be working on the electricity tomorrow from 8 am to 4 pm. lordy it ticks me off.

why do it in the middle of summer, why not in fall when we don't need the air. they are forever turning off the water for repair. you'd think they had the darn things fixed by now.

i will be fine but they are elderly people in here that can't go outside to be cool.

see you all after four pm.

babe

then I would hope that they make arrangements for the ones that cannot get some air on their own!! I would demand that one! if they don't and anyhting should happen to any of them, that is neglegence {sp}.
Will be thinking about you. Stay cool and drink a lot of liquids.

How depressing for you! Get one of those battery powered hand held fans! And that's scary leaving the elderly w/out AC. Many of the elderly die every year because of things like heat stroke!

it was just as big a pain as i thought it would be. handyman here painting . he and i drank tons of water and soda. opened all the windows in the house. came back on at two pm instead of four pm which was great.

pretty much only got to 85 today, but could have been a lot worse.

I've done that before Babe ~ once when hubby forgot to pay the bill on time. Oops. Imagine getting out of the house with 3 kids? Let's just say it was a fun afternoon for me.
