Blessing in Disguise

My air conditioner is broken.  The inspector warned me I should plan on replacing it when I bought this house.  It is 30 years old, and I've gotten almost 2 summers out of it.  I was not thrilled, but it does look like we're going to have a cooler week.  Yesterday, though, my concern was a good night's sleep prior to this morning's worship.  Then I found a note on my door.  A neighbor was going to have a going away party.  It might get loud.  It would begin at 10:00 (p.m.) and should be over by 3:00 a.m.  Now I was really concerned.  A loud party and no AC.  Daughter brought up some fans from the basement.  Big fans.  We put them in front of our open bedroom windows.  We turned them on.  The noise from the fan took care of any party noise, and I got a decent night's sleep.

There is a member of the church who installs AC on the side.  I'm going to talk to him about replacing the unit this week.  With it 30 years old, I'm not even going to try to repair it.  A new unit should also save money on the electricity bill.  It will be okay.
