Well, dear friends, our AC has decided to stop working properly, so I had no choice but to shut it off completely for the time being. It is sweltering hot here in south Alabama, as you can imagine.
So please say a little prayer for us, that we can scrape up the money to get the AC fixed or at the very least get a window unit. Until then, I will be going into "frugal mode". Here are some interesting articles on heating/cooling your home from http://www.frugalliving.about.com/ .
