We Have Such Bad Luck: Air Conditioner Failure in the Heat of Summer

Well, yesterday my air conditioner decided to go out on us. The fan wasn’t running on the unit. It sure picked a great time to do that, considering it was 90+ degrees outside with the humidity at least 100. Summers are so hot here in Louisiana. Makes me want to move to a cooler place 🙂

Seems my husband and I the worst luck ever. When stuff happens to us, it happens all at once.  I swear I sometimes think we are jinxed.  So, we had to sleep with just a fan last night, but luckily it got a little cooler and it wasn’t so bad.

Today, my husband only worked half a day and we called an air conditioner guy that told us what it could be.  We had to borrow the money to get the part needed from my husband’s boss. We had to run out to get it and when we got home, my house was so hot! You walk in and it literally sucks the breath out of you. My husband put the part in and the fan kicked right on. I was literally jumping up and down 🙂 I was so happy it wasn’t something more serious like the fan motor. That would have cost us a lot more money, which we didn’t have right now. 

I am just glad it worked out and only cost $20  instead of $100’s of dollars.. Do you ever had bad luck? Do things happen to you all at once and you just feel like the world is crashing in on you?

    I am right there with you about bad luck, and currently have a big one right now. I don’t have a break so it seemed!

    I’ve had days like that! I was just telling my father yesterday that I’m glad my husband & I moved our family to the West. The heat and humidity in Montreal are getting worse every year. It was getting so I couldn’t bear it anymore. It does get hot sometimes in BC, but not nearly as bad. I just use a rotary fan here, and not even all of the time.

    @ruby3881 The summers here are so brutal. That is why I hardly go outside anymore during the summers here. When I was younger it didn’t really bother me so much, but now as I gotten older it does. I guess it just old age lol
