Every once in a while people shock me and do something I’ve been trying to do for a long time. In the spring, before the summer heat began, we moved an old weird ass air conditioner into my room.
I couldn’t get the jammed old wooden window open, so I just gave up on it. That seems to be my thing. I try a few times a few different ways and then I move on and rarely think about it again.
Today my bedroom reached over 101f and I wined a bit. If I could leave my door open, It would be manageable but I can’t because the cats get in.
When I asked about a fan for the hallway to blow into my room, he suddenly became exactly what I needed. Fix it NOW man. He walked over to the window, put his hands soon it and whamo. It was suddenly wide open.
I should be able to get some AC tonight, unless something unexpected goes wrong with this antique machine. It’s gigantic.
It’s quite possibly too powerful but it’s an inside air conditioner with hoses that go out the window so I’m hoping it is somewhat adjustable. I’m okay with the loudness it will no doubt have to get some heat relief.
It’d be amazing if it helped with my sleep and pee cycles but I believe air conditioners dehydrate the air as well so it’s quite possible my relative humidity will drop below 30%. A small price to pay for coolness.
I am pleased. My jaw dropped When he just stands there and opens the window like it was nothing. As usual, I could have done that 3 months ago but didn’t. I’m glad he was in the let’s do it now mood.
I have to make it work tonight or he’ll be on my case I think but that’s okay It’s only 6:00 p.m.
It needs a lot of duct tape and a heavy duty extension cord to its own wall socket which will take a bit of shuffling. The window is open and fresh natures air is cooling the room. I hope he lets it go instead of insisting we get it running tonight. It’s so much better already. The hose framework is for a much larger window but I should be able to make it work, or make a new one. I’m just low on energy tonight.
Too bad it’s August 21st. I’m an idiot for not asking for help but it’s who I am. Argh.
