We've been having air conditioner issues. This (along with being actually busy at work, and not being able to blog there) is the leading reason for my lack of postage. See, I don't like to think when I'm sticky and a hair too warm, so I have been reading the interwebs, just not contributing to them.
We are lucky with the air conditioner. It's isn't dead, it's just unhappy, and it's only May. If this problem had waited until July or August to start we'd be dying in here. The air conditioner works until about 4 in the afternoon, and then it just starts to stop. It moves less air, although it seems like if we could pull the air into the house it would still be cold. We end up having to turn off the AC for a bit, sometimes as little as an hour, sometimes a bit longer, but when we turn it back on everything is grand again.
The landlord is having some friend of a friend (who really is an AC guy, not just someone who watches a lot of HGTV or DIY) come by soon. Hopefully he'll come out Monday, but we don't know yet for sure. It seems to be a consensus that perhaps replacing the fan and recharging the freon with make everything right again. Of course the AC guy hasn't actually looked at anything yet, so that may change once he gets here.
Keep your fingers crossed for us that it doesn't get any hotter here before this gets fixed. I also really hope that he's able to fix it the same day that he comes out. It's really annoying to have a house that's perfectly comfortable 90% of the day, and then have to suffer for a few hours in the early evening.
