Okay, so that saying about when it rains, it pours is pretty dang accurate.
I spent the better part of the last year sucking up the air conditioning inside my house.
I did this in order to slow the spread of Covid and be sure that I remained virus free. I wasn’t taking my chances so overdosing on HVAC comfort was what it had to be. So then, I get vaccinated and am just starting to enjoy a bit of the old life and bang. I’m hit hard in a traffic accident. Of course, once I got out of the hospital, I was right back to the air conditioning of my house. And that’s going to be the way it is for the summer. My body is pretty banged up and has a lot of healing to do. So it will be a combination of brutal physical therapy sessions followed by lots of rest. This wasn’t so bad until the heat of summer really settled in. And around here, there is a big difference in hot and summer hot. Summer hot means that you’re basically inside some sort of HVAC cooling by lunch and at least until close to sundown. Of course that means the house heat really begins to fluctuate. And when just getting to the bathroom is a giant chore, managing the thermostat all day is a no go. Thankfully, we have a smart thermostat and it’s usually spot on as far as adjustments. But if I need to adjust the thermostat manually, I have an app on my phone that can do just that.
