Summer Hangups

Although my summer is full of opportunities to do whatever I want, there have been quite a few hangups.

Hangup #1: Aaron and I have always had to have fans on in our bedroom, and we just thought that the air conditioning was out of balance in the house. My room in Virginia was over the garage, so we had issues with the heating and cooling. We figured that the basement here in Ptown was having the same issue. An air conditioning technician came a week or two ago and told us that each floor in the house has a separate air conditioning unit, the basement level air conditioner isn't even functioning and that there must be a leak somewhere. He told us to just turn the air conditioner off. We did as we were told. To our surprise there was absolutely no difference in the temperature, it has been broken ALL SUMMER LONG. Not to mention the fact that this has been one of the hottest summers in Provo. We now have four fans running all day everyday. So we're suffering and making Aaron's parents pay for the electricity. We're the best kids any parent could ask for. Not to mention the best moochers you've ever seen. Thankfully today he air conditioning guy is coming to FIX the problem. I can hear the angels singing gloriously!

Hangup #2: Ever since finals have ended I have been sick with the most random crap known to man. Last weak I was having headaches and I was really nauseated. Let me clear things up, I'm not pregnant, that is in fact the first question that most people have asked me. So I've spent many a day in my jammies taking tylenol. When those symptoms started to clear up, (a doctor in my ward said that he thought it was probably a virus) I then started to get this RAGING heartburn. It would start whenever I ate anything and it wouldn't go away. I have never had heartburn before but it is of the DEVIL. It is the most uncomfortable annoying pain that has ever been. Not to worry, I went to the doctor yesterday and he gave me some medicine to take for the heartburn. AH, sweet freedom! I can now be comfortable and enjoy summer!

Now that all the venting has been done, to everything there is a silver lining. Today I am grateful for professional air conditioning fixers, and prescription strength Prilosec!

Okay, let me see if I have this straight--You NEVER have time to e-mail me BUT you DO have time to BLOG? What is wrong with this picture? I did enjoying reading about your exciting fan-filled summer. At least I know I can get caught up on your life even if I don't personally hear from you. Btw, I have a blog too. I woke up one night and decided that I needed to get one. So, I did. But, then I went back to sleep and couldn't remember what I named it. I'll let you know when I find it. And, yes, I'm THAT pathetic.
Love ya!

GUESS WHAT???? When I posted my last response it told me what my blog name is. Wow. There you have it. Don't bother going there, I haven't written anything yet. I guess that will happen the next time I wake up in the middle of the night.
