My baby’s first trip to Home Depot came at a very young age.
In fact, it came before she was even born! When I was expecting my little one to come along, my body became a furnace that was determined to suffocate me with heat.
Because of the hormones and whatever else, I felt an overwhelming need for additional air conditioning. We had central heating and cooling in the house, and every room had a ceiling fan, but it still was never enough. My daughter was born in June, and I simply don’t know how I would have survived if I had needed to go through August! Anyway, my husband was always complaining about my incessant use of the a/c. Admittedly, I did set the thermostat low enough to hang meat safely. In fact, if the a/c ever shut off, which was rare, I would then head straight to the thermostat and set it even lower. Honestly, it was a bit out of hand, but there is no sense in trying to reason with a pregnant woman. If she wants a/c, she wants a/c and that is all there is to it. That did not stop my husband, however. The HVAC became a bone of contention in my household, especially when I wanted to go to Home Depot and buy a window a/c unit for every window in the house. I look back on it now and laugh. Anyway, I was really quite large, and I had no idea how I was going to actually install an a/c unit in every window, but I got myself in the truck and drove thirty minutes to the closest store. I was aggravated, I will admit, so when I got to the store and found a welcoming and calm sales clerk, it was a very good thing. The employee convinced me that getting that many air conditioners was not a good idea, and then he helped me choose one uit that would serve my needs.
