Feelin' hot, hot, hot

When the weather got chilly last winter we turned on the heat only to discover that it was broken. When the weather got warm this spring we turned on the a/c only to discover that it, too, was broken. Fans and a couple of small window units have been getting us through so far, but now the heat is getting for real. It will be in the mid 90's this week with an index over 100. Now we've gotta get serious! Our entire heating and cooling system has to be replaced including all the duct work- since it was so old and energy inefficient (and parts had even fallen down into the crawl space!) This is gonna be quite a summer as we try to beat the heat while looking for the right company to do the job and figuring out our budget. In the meantime we've added a 3rd window unit and, if necessary, I am prepared to freeze washcloths and fill feet soaking buckets with cold ice water. Hey, a pregnant girl's gotta do what she's gotta do! At this point I am very thankful for an ice maker, window units, and our fans. ;-)
