This week allowed a nice couple days off...but only because we had to replace our air conditioning system (ouch!). Thanks to buying a builder's grade home, we also got builder's grade major appliances and (surprise, surprise) they are junky. Surprise, surprise, indeed.
So, we bit the bullet, ripped off the bandaid, whatever other metaphor you can think of, and we replaced the whole thing. We figured this will pay off in the long run and now this is something we won't have to worry about for years. I am so grateful that the AC kicked the bucket after the heat of the summer was beyond us.
Now our goal is to pick a big appliance every year and replace it until everything is replaced with higher quality items. Next on our list is a high-efficiency furnace.
Anyway, once we got over the initial shock of spending an arm and a leg on the air conditioning, the rest of the week seemed easy peasy, and now it's Friday!

As for our plans for the weekend, we have a big outdoor party at my brother- and sister-in-law's house on Saturday, and then we're hitting up Oktoberfest in Smithville on Sunday. I don't know about you, but I love Fall festivals!
What are your plans for the weekend?
