“Damn it! I can’t get it in!”
Disgusted and swearing, hubby stalked off mumbling that there is the right tool for every job and evidently he just didn’t have it and now has to look for that tool. Only what?
Behind him I glance over at our couch and know we have some babies in trouble who cannot tolerate heat. You have no idea how much I just wanted to loose all control and have a hissy fit. Why WHY does this happen whenever hubby works on anything which then always turns into a major project? Or unforeseen problems just appear like rabbits out of a hat. OH how frustrating this is!
Taking my phone I look at the picture I had taken of where it goes in what hole before hubby had disassembled it. OK, I see. The red wire that hubby couldn’t get in simply slides into that bracket there. I focused my eyes on the new unit in front of me and saw where that red wire would slip in. Easy.
Hmmmmm ….. Let me see what I can do. My babies are depending on me and if we just let Dad do the job, we just may be here all day long. Nope. Not this time. Not acceptable.
Closely I looked at the wires and the places each are supposed to be hooked up to. Referring to my phone again I carefully select the red wire and taking my index finger of my right hand I just push it in the hole. And it stayed there. Huh.
I found the perfect tool. My finger. 😂
Elated I yell …
“Hubby, the wire’s in!” which in turn got him running over to where I was standing. Disbelief written all over his face, needless to say, he grabs the flashlight to inspect my work. Of course he expected what I told him to be wrong. But! Ah … sure enough that red wire was in exactly where it was supposed to be.
Giggling and trying so hard not to break out laughing ….
Mumbling, …… “I don’t believe this 🙄”, hubby tightens the screw. OH how I wanted to burst out laughing because it really was too funny. He’s always just so serious and always always always expects a job to be difficult and when you think that way, guess what (?), it is. And then comes along little ‘o me who experiments and tries something and voila it works! I tend to look at something to figure out how to do what. That generally is how I learn throughout life. Trial and error.
Sometimes … it takes a woman to get the job done! And all this woman needed was a finger to do it. 😂 Thank goodness I did what I did because what was being fixed was the AC control unit. The slider control button broke with all stops at cool, off, heat, nonexistent. The temperature in our house when the new AC control unit was installed was at 84°F. OMG! No wonder my babies were prostrate on the couch! If I had not intervened only God knows how long hubby would have been trying to figure out how to get that red wire in properly. All day? 😂
And if any of you are wondering why hubby decided to install the new AC unit, even though that unit was under warranty … I’ll tell you why. The company we bought the AC unit from would have charged us for a service call to have someone who worked for them come to our home to replace it. Do ya believe that? 😡

I know this has nothing to do with an AC control unit but the next time allergies hit, or nasal congestion, or a cold which leaves you with a stuffed nose, try using a Neti Pot with sea salt in warm water. I found information and a recipe how to prepare the sea salt to water properly at wellnesstoday.com. This works. Truly. It may take some time to work up the courage to actually do it because well, it’s uncomfortable but it beats having a nose feeling as though it has cement in it. That’s my snippet for the day passing on a health tip for you. 😘
