Hot, sweaty attention from a repairman

July 6, 2010

There are many things that pregnancy makes a person feel, but with our recent weather, the only thing I have been feeling is hot and cranky.

The thing is, I am only 14-ish weeks along. I cannot imagine being due in late July or August; I know I would have my house set on igloo-like settings. Have you ever seen Father of the Bride 2?  Two expectant moms take over the house and the husband is walking around during the summer, inside, with a winter parka on, shivering?  I mean like that.

However, my husband would never stand for that.  As it was, our AC was broken and our house was disgustingly hot and he was all, “You big baby, it’s not that bad in here.”  Meanwhile, I was slowly dying, with barely enough energy left to argue.  It was terrible.

Then today, we finally called a guy to come have a look-see.  And let me tell you, I would have gladly given this man anything, as long as he got the AC working. I think he could sense my desperation and did not take extreme advantage of me, he just wanted my money.

Since he left, it has gone from 86 in here to a cool 75 degrees. I am beginning to come out of my haze and, let me say, I am glad all the old man wanted was my money.  ‘Cause having sex is the last thing on my mind these days.
