Wednesday night I was supposed to be hosting for friends for a get-together of cocktails and dinner.
Every so often we like to party and just share some friendship times.
I really like that I have friends that like to do this, as I find that finally working all afternoon makes it more challenging to find fun things to do. I was looking forward to cooking our chicken, asparagus, and potatoes, however when I got home I discovered that it seemed awfully warm in our house. I headed over to the thermostat which hangs in the wall, and that is when I discovered that the thermostat was studying 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, and I really did not ever expect for our house to be 83 degrees. I had set the thermostat on 71 when I left that afternoon, as I typically do before I leave for work! So, I knew something was wrong. I had 2 options. I could call our friends and tell them that our air conditioning was on the fritz and we would have to do our dinner another time, or I could try to have a fantastic time with our 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 our only 2 options, so I called our friend Jennifer first. I was quite overjoyed when Jennifer said oh, the two of us do not have to cancel, we can just have dinner at our site. I was so cheerful 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 house to a thermostat that reads 83 is no fun, however having friends like Jennifer that you can count on is just fabulous
