I had every fan in the house running on high
The days can be long and hot when you live in the desert. I used to think there wasn’t anything that could make me live in the desert, but that was before I met my husband. When I met him, I knew I would go anywhere with him. I had a job that allowed me to work from home, as long as I had a fax and a photocopier. I had both, and that is why I am finding myself in the middle of the desert. I married the man of my dreams and I am now living in this crazy place. I really didn’t think it could get any worse than it was when I had to go. My husband laughs at me when I say I didn’t think. He tells me not to tempt fate. I wish I had listened to my husband about tempting fate. The next day, we hit a high for our area of 108 degrees. Earlier, I had said that days are long and hot when you live in the desert. When the air conditioning breaks, the days are even longer and hotter. Even my computer didn’t want to work without the air conditioning. I called the HVAC company as soon as I saw the temperature beginning to rise. They weren’t overly busy, but they said it would take about six hours before they could get to the house. I had every fan in the house running on high. I was spending some time working and some time with my head in the freezer. By the time the HVAC tech arrived, I was ready to kiss him; I was so happy to see him there.
