For those of you who have been to the store, you may have noticed that the air conditioning is not up to par. Perhaps you credited me with being frugal and energy efficient, but no, it's just a crappy a/c unit.
Jon and I are having terrible luck with semi-major appliances lately. We've killed two air conditioners and a television. They are safely stored in our garage for now, but we are trying to find a way to get rid of them safely. I found a website which will tell you where to dispose of items that you shouldn't put in the regular garbage or recycling bins.
I didn't realize that so many retail stores are taking in old batteries and stuff. Still haven't found where to "dump" my air conditioners, but thought I'd share that website with you all. We actually tried to deep clean the a/c at the store tonight. Years of hairspray seem to have taken their toll on the poor thing. Hopefully tomorrow it will be good as new. If not, my friend Mary, who was at the overheated store last night, called me today to say that her workplace was replacing their window units (which still work) so she grabbed one for me. We'll see if I need it at the store. . .if not, we've got a shortage at home. I'm still very proud of the fact that I have not bought anything new for the store except products and a piece of paneling to cover a hideous wall. And technically, the landlord bought that.
