I agree....=(

Our house has been hot also...This stupid house we are stuck in has NO insulation....so our tiny little window unit we keep in the bedroom doesn't even scratch the surface...And our house is in direct sun...

Freezing in the winter, and sweltering in the summer...At least we aren't using 100 Gal of propane every 2 weeks like we were in the winter!

I'm praying we get outta this house before winter....luckily we moved in towards the end of winter, and I just now got done paying off the last propane bill...I have no idea how we would survive the whole winter paying for 100 gallons of propane every 2 weeks...

Also praying for you guys! Always!

ya propane sucks!!!! i don't miss the monthly fill ups at all!
but then there's this sweltering heat and smoke

argh..... well at least Jeff knows guys that do A/C work
he's calling them this morning to see if they can come fix it while i'm driving kids all over in the smokey mountains today

this is a day you would think...... i don't envy lisa LOL

Lol...I dunno....a few days of being miserable might be worth it all doncha think?!?!

Lol....Our propane probably wouldn't be monthly if this stupid house had ANY form of insulation...

And get this---Jamie wanted to buy it from Jeff (our landlord--Jeez I know a billion Jeffs) to fix it up--meaning putting insulation in, fixing ALL the walls and the ceiling(AWFUL sheet rock jobs), etc. and he wants $30,000!!! LMFAO! Around here, this house isn't even worth $12,000!!!

Lisa, welcome home. :) Yes, it sucks. Hey...if you can't get the air fixed...by all means come to my smokey house and yard. At least I have air!

Yeah, it's been terrible. If that's what it takes to get a deep orange sunset, I can live without it... :-)

it's good to have you home - sorry to hear you have the struggles with heat and smoke

glad Jeff has connections

we would be so screwed if we lost our a/c

when we had the big house in Houston (3800 square feet) we had one a/c unit for upstairs and one for downstairs. Not long before we lost the house we replaced the upstairs (outside) unit and had all new piping done - the builder had used crappy materials that didn't meet the a/c spec.... $5600!!!!!
Jun 25 2008 15:08 GMT LisaSam67
holy cow! 3800?!

jeff's work is cancelled from thick smoke

he's on his way home now

Great shot - pitty about the fires but is sure adds a lot of atmosphere to the atmosphere!
Jun 25 2008 15:18 GMT ManiacMom PRO
how bad is it up where you are? In S. Redding...I can barely see the trees at the end of the street. Whiskeytown is contained so maybe they can start working on the other 135+ fires now. My poor birds. :(((((((

yep - 4 bed, 3.5 bath, huge living room, huge family room (library - I was in the book business for 3-4 years and we had over 10k books), music room, dining room, breakfast room, kitchen (about the size of our current apartment), breakfast room and laundry room -

also 2.5 car garage, 1/5 acre lot with fenced back yard, driveway big enough for 7 cars and on a cul-de-sac with 5 houses (we were in the back center) off a dead-end street in a 100 house subdivision with only one limited access exit/entrance off major suburban artery out of sight and sound at the entrance

within 5 miles:
grocery, 2 drug stores, Chili's, Bennigan's, Barnes and Noble, 3rd largest shopping mall (at the time) in Houston, Starbucks, UPS type store, 1500 head of cattle grazing field, Mom and Dad's (until they moved), church, dry cleaner, Wendy's, McDonalds, Jack Box, and much, much more

before my breakdown I mad a LOT of money....... early 90's (92-99) I was in the computer business selling mainly Macs and PC's - 95% to companies like BP, Conoco, Texaco, Minute Maid etc.

I held 6 or 7 different positions with the company in the 5 years I was there - one month in sales (a good month of sales was around $100k in sales) I had a $1.2million sale in addition to another $250k in sales - my commission for just that month was (after taxes, 7% 401k, 7% stock options and all taxes) $38k..:-))

The same year - Apple sent me on a 3 night cruise in the Caribbean, I went to Portland for 4 days (side trips to Mt St Helens, Columbia River Gorge, Mt Hood), Scottsdale (Phoenix suburb), New Orleans over New Years where we attended the Mayor's dinner and Ball - then fireworks from the same room over the Mississippi - then on New Years day we went to the college championship bowl for the #1 place (via limo) at the Superdome.
I had a client send me to Switzerland office to work on their network for a week then 5 days in London (all paid for + $1000 cash for expenses - but they paid for all meals, tips etc.)

The best part of the trips? I got to take Gail at no charge!!!! :-))
