Today Was A Good Day

My Air Conditioning Crisis:

The AC guy came about 9:30 am and it took roughly 2 hours for him to do what he needed to do to replace that part.  (The doo-hickey part is a TXV Valve)  He said he was certain this would fix the problem.  I wanted to believe... but was afraid to trust.  I had struggled so much the last four weeks that I couldn't believe it was finally going to be over.

I left the house about 2 pm.  The temperature had dropped from 86 to 80 degrees.  The humidity had dropped from 55% to 52%.  I set the thermostat to 76 degrees.  When I returned home at 8:30 pm... it was 76 degrees and there was no ice buildup.  WOOHOO!!!

After suffering in upper 80 and 90 degrees temps in here... 76 feels pretty darn cold!

On The Job Front:

I received a call on Tuesday from an employer I sent my resume to.  We had an initial interview over the phone.  She said she received approximately 500 resumes, out of those she decided which ones would get initial phone interviews.  I was one of the chosen ones... out of 500! If I make the cut from the phone interview, then I would be FedEx'd a packet with information and an application.  From those it would be decided who will get, I believe she said, video conference.  Then, from those, individuals would be chosen for a face to face interview.  I was so excited and nervous that I can't remember exactly. The home office is in Massachussetts, she would fly down for those interviews.

Well guess what came today?!!  I GOT A FEDEX PACKET!!!  Yea me!

I'm going to get it filled out and sent back immediately.  So say a prayer and keep your fingers crossed.
