Sometimes the tests that come with home ownership can make you want to become a renter again. This past Friday, hubby and I came home about 5pm to find our air conditioner had gone out. In fact, it had completely frozen up. Being that it is 5pm and on a Friday, getting someone out was a little tricky. We do have a home warranty, but they couldn't get anyone out until maybe Sunday. We have a company that did our annual maintenance on the a/c just 2 weeks before, so I called them. They were able to come out on Saturday and we discovered our blower motor was dead. It was finally replaced on Monday, but it was a really long weekend with no a/c. The highest it got in the house was 90 and we were able to muscle through by opening windows and using lots of fans. But when things like that happen, I sometimes miss being able to pick up the phone and have the landlord deal with the issue.
Then I think about my garden and the great neighbors I have and I am glad I have my house. Pros and cons, I suppose.
