There's a spring in my step every Friday morning. Work isn't necessarily less grueling, but the mere fact that the weekend is so nigh at hand really improves my mood, and even gives me a boost of energy. I even sleep better on Thursday nights, as if my body knows that it's almost over! So when I tell you that I was devastated when I came home Friday evening to a house that had somehow lost air conditioning, I mean it! I mean, sure, the work week was over, but what was I going to do about my broken air conditioner? I didn't see it coming, and I did not have the slightest clue as to how it happened. It was almost 6:00 in the evening, so I thought perhaps I could still get an HVAC guy on the phone. I called a local heating and air conditioning company, and they said they would send someone out the following morning. I balked at this notion. I suddenly realized the predicament I was in. It's not like I would sleep particularly well that night without the benefit of an air conditioner. However, I usually sleep in on Saturday mornings. I look forward to being able to sleep in on Saturday mornings every week, as a matter of fact. The HVAC guy said he would be able to arrive at 8:00 in the morning! I'm not typically up until 9:30 in the morning. Luckily, I said I wouldn't necessarily be available that early, and the HVAC man was able to reschedule the appointment to 11:00 in the morning. That was significantly more convenient.
