Thursday night I was supposed to be hosting for friends for a get-together of cocktails and dinner.
Every so often we like to get together and just share some friendship times.
I really love that I have friends that like to do this, as I find that working all day makes it more challenging to find fun things to do. I was looking forward to cooking my chicken, asparagus, and potatoes, but when I got home I discovered that it seemed awfully warm in my house. I headed over to the thermostat which hangs in the wall, and that is when I discovered that the thermostat was reading 83 degrees! I do live in the Southeastern portion of the country, and let me tell you most of the Year here it is quite hot. We have not yet reached summer, yet, though oh, and I really did not ever expect for my house to be 83 degrees. I had set the thermostat on 77 when I left that morning, as I always do before I leave for work. So, I knew something was wrong. I had two options. I could call my friends and tell them that my air conditioning was on the fritz and we would have to do our dinner another time, or I could try to have a good time with my friends even without AC. Of course, not only would we not have the HVAC running, I also would be running the oven and the stove, so it was more likely to be even hotter here than what the thermostat currently reads. I really thought those were my only two options, so I called my friend Jennifer first. I was quite Overjoyed when Jennifer said oh, we don’t have to cancel, we can just have dinner at my place. I was so happy with Jennifer because normally people do not like to switch our get-togethers at the last minute, as oftentimes our houses are not exactly clean all the time. Coming home to a thermostat that reads 83 is no fun, but having friends like Jennifer that you can count on is just fabulous
