Friday! Sorry it's been so long since I posted anything, but we've been busy.

Wednesday we contacted five companies about getting the tree limb removed, and of the two that replied to voicemail/emails, neither can even come out to see the problem until Monday. Seems that the storms of late have kept them quite busy! The AC fellow charged the freon in the system, and we once again have cool air inside the house! That done, we debated having the 28 yrs old all-electric heat/ac system replaced with a modern heat pump, and last night signed the contract. 3.5 ton, 12 seer unit. :)

I recently finished reading Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson, which was a difficult read at parts, but overall pretty good. I just started reading another Laurell K. Hamilton book - Caress of Twilight, the second book in the Merry Gentry series. Imagine a modern day sidhe princess (unseelie court) who has run from the courts and is hiding among humans. Pretty good! The first book (Kiss of Shadows) was really great, and I have high hopes for this one as well.

Last weekend we rented 'Murder by Numbers', and haven't watched it yet! Hopefully tonight we will have time.
