My girlfriend and I have been looking forward to a visit from my parents.
My girlfriend and I have been together for a year and a half, but she has never met my parents.
They live almost a thousand miles away and it can be difficult to visit them frequently. When my Mom and Dad decided to come visit, my girlfriend and I wanted the guest room to be perfect. We bought brand new sheets for the bed and a new comforter with lilies, roses, and daffodils. We bought new pillows for the bed as well. We knew climate control might be a problem, because it’s very hot near the back of the apartment. My girlfriend had a really great idea. She suggested that we go to the hardware store and buy a small air conditioner to keep in the spare bedroom. It can be very hot and humid here in the South, and I didn’t want my parents to suffer. I thought buying a small air conditioner seemed like a great idea and I was totally supportive. My girlfriend and I found a portable air conditioner on the clearance rack. It was one of the models from last year, but it was still brand new in the box. My girlfriend and I paid about $150 for the portable air conditioner. The best part is the fact that it doesn’t have a separate vent for the unit. Some portable air conditioners require a window for the exhaust vent. This portable air conditioner was an all-in-one unit that didn’t need any extra equipment.
