So, still waiting to hear from the warranty company about how much money they will give me for the a/c repairs.....the phone call should come today (I hope!!!)
Since I am doing more work than they would "require," I can use my own contractor! Yeah! I asked a friend at church for a recommendation and talked with her folks yesterday. It is nice to call a service company, tell them by whom I was referred, and hear "oh yes, she has been a client of ours for a long time!" I had a nice long chat with the lady, learned way more than I ever wanted to know about a/c, and feel pretty good about using them full time going forward! They are coming out to assess things today -- from our discussion yesterday, I will actually probably go ahead and replace the entire unit - inside and out. A little more costly now, but more of a cost benefit for the long haul.
Moving to my friend Kelly's tonight. We were supposed to hang out at my house for her to see all my completed projects. But, since that can't happen, I'm just going to her place to hang out, do laundry and spend the night!
And the saga continues.....
