Yes it has been a very HOT past week here in Tennessee and no rain in over 2 weeks. I have had some pretty bad luck this past week too. During this heat wave our Central air conditioner decided to die on us. This happenned last saturday when it was 99 degrees. We luckily have a room that we added on to the house that has a window air conditioner. We lived in that room until Monday as the inside of the house was 95 and above. Our Air repair guy came out on sunday and told us the unit was shot and we had to buy a whole new unit. As you can imagine this was a very costly event for us, but there was no way around it, not when the temperature is this ungodly hot. So on Monday we had a new unit installed and was enjoying cold air again by that night. This one has a heat pump on it and should save us money on our electric bill in the winter.
So I went back to work yesterday. We had a inservice day and recieved some very bad news. In about a month to 6 weeks my office will be moved to the other side of Nashville. I live west of Nashville and I will have to drive 4o miles to the east side of Nashville during rush hour traffic. Which means in order for me to get to the office by 8 a.m. I will have to leave by 6 a.m. and I get off at 4 p.m. and if I am lucky I might get home by 6, if there is no rain and no wrecks.
Needless to say, I am very upset and disgusted at this point. Trying hard to rack my brain to figure out how I could quit work and find something better. I just don't see it happenning though. I have worked for the schools for 23 years and hoped to retire from there with a nice fat pension. I have no college degrees so there is no other job that I could take that I would make as much as I do now. Right now I feel as if my luck has really gone sour on me. I keep telling myself that this is just a little bump in the road and maybe I will believe it one day. I do know that I will have very little time to do any art swaps or any art at all. And that really depresses me. Oh well,,thats just the way life goes sometimes.
So thats whats up with me at the present time. I hope to be able to do some blogging and I will try hard to stay in touch with everyone.
Yesterday it got up to 104 here and little cooler today with highs around 99,,hows that for a cool spell,,lol.
I hope everyone is staying cool and hope everyone has a wonderful week-end. Hugs to All!!!
