I do NOT know how the pioneers made it in Southern Utah back in the days of NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! Good hell! I about died, and we had FANS!! I am definately born in the right day and age! Those were some strong people to live back then!! And the women in their bonnets and layered hoop skirts and dresses!! NO THANK YOU! I'll gladly take my air conditioning and popsicles!! Thanks!

So...Rob called me yesterday while I was at work still and said, "I just got home....the air conditioner is not working". "oh, well that sounds like fun!" I said. When I got home it felt like an oven. The landlord said they'd have someone come look at it. In the meantime they said to go on the roof and check the swamp cooler, that should still work. We had no idea what we were doing, so thankfully my step dad came over to look at it. We just needed a quick fix, but he was all about giving it a full make over. Well, come to find out, the pump on it is shot. The guy came by to look at the AC and while he was tinkering with it, freon started leaking out. Rob tried to close up the house in time, but we had already started inhaling it. He said that he'd have to order a part...the compressor was shot. We decided to find somewhere with AC to grab some food. We went to Wendy's. As we were driving there I still felt lightheaded and weirded out from the freon, as we pulled up I could have sworn there was a guy with a Storm Trooper mask on...nope, just a white hat with sunglasses on it. Then we went inside and the cashier was seriously cracked out and talking about his wife and wedding ring, which I think were both imaginary. He kept coming by us while we were eating and saying things we didn't understand. He was kind of mumbling, "hiey fouwn somdose shoshoshosho awooowwwhe doby thawibberhanc". Yeah, can't help you buddy, no clue what you're saying. :P Then I didn't understand Rob's joke about the phone number 867-5309, I said, "Who's number is that??"....(Yeah, if you didn't get it, go back and sing it.) Needless to say, we were all a little cracked out. The house finally started to cool down at like 2 a.m. since we had all the fans blowing and had ran the sprinklers to cool the lawn, and opened windows when the sun wasn't hitting them anymore. the 92 degrees that it was at bed time made it a little hard to fall asleep. And now the part to fix it wont be here until tomorrow...so another night of the HOT AND HEAVY!! Maybe I'll go outside if it is cooler out there and huff some freon.... heehee jk.

I received some news that made me sad. If you read my blog in May titled "Teachers" you know that I had found my 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Lee Vanmoerkerque, whom I've held near and dear to my heart since I was 11. I received an email from her son the other night to inform me that Mrs. Lee had passed away last week. That hit me pretty hard. When I told Rob, he said that when he had spoken to her (when I was on the phone with her one time, she asked to speak with him, so she could "meet" him) she had told him that she was very ill and wasn't going to live much longer. She made him promise not to tell me, since it was close to the wedding, she didn't want me to be sad. Also, when she had called Rob's mom to get my phone number, she had told her that she had Cancer, and didn't have long to live, and also asked her to not tell me. I can understand her not wanting me to be sad after being so excited that I had just found her. I had gotten some earrings for her in Mexico on my honeymoon, and hadn't sent them to her yet. I looked back on my "Teachers" blog before starting this one and saw that there was a new comment from last week on the blog from a woman telling me that Mrs. Lee had passed. I guess at least, I can say that I was able to find her and tell her how much I appreciated her, and how much she meant to me. I am very grateful for that.
Mrs. Lee...I will miss you. You are an amazing person and I am so glad I got to meet you and then find you again after 17 years. Thank you for teaching me more than any teacher ever had.
