HOT! STUFF!

I have not posted in a while due to some HOT problems. I live in San Antonio, Texas and we have had 52 days of 100 degrees and above........so when I say HOT....I mean HOT!

A/C went out last Saturday, got a/c man here and had relay switch replaced. Still would not work. Circuit breaker kept shutting off. Got an electrician here Monday, fixed it, ran new line to circuit box. A/c still would not work. A/C man here this morning......compressor is froze. This 3 1/2 ton unit is 2 yrs. old and still under warranty and will eventually be replaced..........AND it's definitely HOT STUFF here in this house. They will be back tomorrow morning to remove compressor and take in for exchange, but will be probably be a few more days. I just pray that it doesn't have to be ordered and one will be in stock.

I crated up my 3 inside cats, grabbed some clothes, Ebay stuff, Etsy stuff.....and have been staying at my sister's. Thank goodness she is close, and we get along so well. I love her dearly.

Here's another chapter in the saga.......Last Friday HEB grocery store's debit card reader goofed up and the cashier kept telling me to swipe my card again....and again. I disagreed with doing this. It showed on her register screen that it had not been paid....so ??? She got a manager to come check the card reader...he fiddled with it, hit it on the side and told me to swipe my card again.....I did and it 'SUPPOSEDLY' worked this time.

I checked my household checking account online yesterday morning and it had CHARGED my account 4 times for the groceries of $92.68, and plus an odd amount of $86.28. It overdrew my account and I had -0- money showing in my account. I went to bank, went to HEB, on the phone for 1 1/2 hrs. trying to get this removed from my account. It was finally corrected last night, thank goodness.

The lesson here..........don't keep swiping your card when the clerk says to do it. I will never do that again. I thought I'd pass that info onto to everyone!

Wonder what today will bring??

I am putting on my swim suit and going to the pool this a.m. to just float around & relax.

  1. Judy, Judy, Judy. You poor thing. You have been thru the ringer the last month or two. Here's hoping for a calmer remainder of the month.

  2. My ac went out on Thursday night, and didn't get fixed until this morning. And I'm in Florida, so the heat and humidity is pretty brutal. What I did, though finally, was buy a couple window ac units from Walmart for 90 dollars each. They sure helped a lot. Now that the ac is fixed, I'll always have these two little units for back up. I have been through this 3 times in 15 years here, and it ALWAYS happens over a weekend. So I can sure appreciate the inferno like conditions you are going through. I will send some cool thoughts your way, dear! And a dip in the pool sounds like just what the doctor ordered!

  6. You sure have had a few weeks! Never ever swipe your card more than once is right ... always ask for the manager. Have a better weekend. TTFN ~Marydon
