Finding A/C

Alright, so, some people might consider me a pansy for saying this, however, I can't take extreme heat, and my definition of extreme is anything abouve 90 degrees.

So, yesterday was the absolute last straw. I was tired of sleepless nights where the only comfort I received was my power fan moving stale hot air back and forth just enough to cool me off only a little bit, and so I went in search of the air conditioner I used last year.

I searched through all the rooms in the house. We have four bedrooms and a landing. One bedroom - my mother's old room - is used more or less for storage. Nothing there. My father's bedroom, the old nursery, is a tiny closet. Nothing there. My sister's bedroom, the one across from mine, had an A/C unit, but it was the one she bought last year. Couldn't take that. Finally on the landing I found my A/C unit.

But, the problem was, it was huge! I'm not as strong as I used to be. And so, I decided to be a bit inventive. I drug the unit from it's little nitch in th corner, bypassing all the junk we had there, very carefully, and stopped at my door. I got my desk chair - which is an old, hard wooden chair, and picked up the unit to put it on the chair. Gods know where I found the strength to do that, thing was heavy! But I did.

Afterwards, I pushed the chair across my room and to my window, which I opened. Now this particular window had no roof beneath it, so there was a 25 foot drop. I was hoping beyond hope that I wouldn't drop the A/C unit. I picked it up and placed it in the window. Thankfully, all went well.

This took about an 20 minutes, between finding screws and everything else I needed before actually dragging the A/C unit into my room. Walla! Happy Air!

i don't think you're a wimp AT ALL.

i am the same way, so much so that i may require my parents to purchase an AC unit for my bedroom at home if they want me to visit them this summer ;)
