On Friday evening, Rylan mysteriously cut his finger, resulting in his first ER visit. He was a trooper. I was at work, so Mike loaded all 4 kids and went to the ER. I met him there a little later. The kids were starving, so I want to the cafeteria and got them something to eat, while Mike and Rylan did the ER thing. He didn't even fuss when they gave him a shot and sewed him up. Mike took pictures, which I'll upload later. I have to say, going to the ER with four kids was a lot harder than going with one. I hope we won't have another visit for another six years.
We are still without AC. Mike and Brother Mason are going to install it on Thursday. In the meantime, I'm going to abandon the house. It is just too hot, so I reserved a hotel room, and we are moving in tommorow for two nights. It has a swimming pool and a play area. Hopefully it will give us a much needed break from the heat.
At the beginning of last week I woke up to a stifling house. My AC unit had finally decided to die. Considering it is from 1983, it wasn't unexpected, yet still wasn't a welcome event. I have been having AC contactors coming all week to quote replacements systems. I just can't decide what to replace it with. I've narrowed it down to either a Rheem or a Carrier. I'm going to wait to have it installed later in the week, so that Mike can be here with the contractor. I think I'll get better service that way.
Yesterday my kids started to throw up. Today, I have three that are actively throwing up everywhere, including on the dog. I think I may be coming down with it also. Sorry if we spread the bug to any of our friends, I didn't think that it was still a problem.
Now, to just get through this and the laundry, and the carpet cleaning. I am so ready for this week to be over.
