I have some new followers! Yay. I hope ya'll enjoy reading my blog & I PROMISE I'll come visit you too! And I'll officially welcome you on my next post. I PROMISE!
Sorry, I've been kind of missing in action on blogger lately.
Busy & hot, hot, hot...very hot. Did I mention hot? Yes, it's hot here.
The RV should be nice & cool now, but it's not.
Because I decided to set up my portable a/c today, but in order to do that, I have to go nuts & do other stuff first.
To read more about setting up a portable a/c in your rig, click here.
Could the stuff had waited?
Then why did you do it all?
OMGosh, I'm talking to myself!!!
OK, yes, it's been a loooooooooong day.
So I got up this morning. Reluctantly. I wanted to sleep sooo badly. But had to get up. Then I thought I'd set up my portable a/c because it got so hot in here on Saturday that I thought I was going to die. I tried to take a nap, but I woke up red, hot & my body was thumping from the heat. It was 90. So I sat up & did some beading with fans on me.
Yesterday, I was gone most of the day. This morning, before I can get started, I thought, hmmmm, might as well armor all the cab area. So I did that. But me being my crazy self, I thought...hmmmm, I've not shampooed the seats or the cab area yet & it badly needed that after the rebuild. So I did that!
I found a nice curtain panel on sale - clearance for $5.00. I bought it. I wanted it to put over my dash & steering wheel. It gets dusty up there when I'm not traveling & just sitting. Probably because I like open windows when I can have them opened. And fresh air.
So I also opened it & put it over the dash & steering wheel. Perfect! And I also managed not to armor all the steering wheel this time!! Or at least I don't think I did. Time will tell. Otherwise, the next time I go in circles, it might not be the fault of a gps.
OK, finally done with my work. I think. I thought. Ok, I'll sit down for a min. :::pant pant pant::: you know, trying to pant like a dog doesn't work? Only setting up that heavy portable a/c was going to work! The fans at this point aren't doing much for me either. So I did it. What works better is if I put my privacy curtain around it. Then the heat from the hose gets contained in the cab area & not through the entire rig...but wait! I got up to get said curtain, then I remembered I never put up a new velcro strip that holds the curtain in place! So drats. It's always something huh?
So now a/c is running, it says 86 on the panel & (ok, reads, it really doesn't talk) & my temperature thingy in the center of the RV says it's 84. Humidity is dropping though as it's also a dehumidifier! So yay!
Now I get to go run to the store for dog food. Yay. No a/c in the van either :-((( It broked. It now blows hot air through the defrost vents. Nice. OK, not nice. But it is nice having my van back after letting it sit in the driveway for 6 months thinking it had an expensive transmission problem! Found out it was only a transmission relay part. Repair $247. Duh. I also asked them to fix my dead cig lighter. But they didn't. :-( they said they didn't know if it was electrical or what was wrong with it. They suggested that I go get a new cig lighter apparatus. They make them? I didn't know that! So I got one. Another stupid fix. Easy fix. Part $6.00 so I went for 2 years without a cig lighter & could have had one all along. Another duh. I think I'll become a mechanic!!! heehee...who wants to be first???
Before I come help you, I need to clean up this pig of a rig first. It got sooo dirty within the past couple of days. I have no idea how. I think it parties when I leave it. Really. Or it secretly contains mess bombs that explode when I sleep. That must be it!
Oh well, I think I'll go get the dog food, then come back & cook dinner. Then come out & sit in the tiny little cleared space that's left on my sofa because I'm too tired to give a rip about the mess right now. Wait, I don't want to mention rip & sofa in the same sentence. Might not be good luck. Friends tell me that if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. I believe them.
I'll try to catch up on my blog reading later. I've been missing ya'll!!!
I hope everyone are in nice cool spots enjoying their lives.... :::pant pant pant:::
~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~
