How miraculous to have cool air flowing out of the vents again. I feel lucky that the repair was relatively small and that we could get on the repair roster for a hot Sunday. The repair person came out, took about 5 minutes to run some tests, replaced the capacitor, and we were back in business. We paid a bit more because it was a Sunday, but I didn't care--we both have the kind of heavy duty schedule this week that would make it hard to find another day to get it done, which means hanging out waiting for the repair person.
I have other gratitudes too:
--Our house stayed relatively comfortable. We didn't have AC again until after 2, and the temperature didn't go above 81 degrees. Hurray for high ceilings and trees that give shade!
--I got a lot done because we were sitting at home waiting, first for the phone call from the repair person to schedule us, and then waiting on his arrival. I got my grades for one online class turned in, and the next online class is ready to go.
--I managed my anxiety relatively well. If one must have a problem, an AC problem that's easily fixed is one to have.
--We have a cottage in the back that no one is using right now. We put the AC way down so that we'd have an escape if we needed it. It's good to know that the AC still works.
It's not the week-end that I envisioned, exactly, but we were still able to end the day by walking to the marina and sitting on our favorite bench to stare at the boats and the water.
