I go back to work on Monday the 23rd. I only get part time hours. I will work 1-6pm M-Thurs's. That's 20 hours a week. Better than nothing. But was told there may be a couple retirements coming up. Which might open up some more hours after the holidays. I got the call this morning about work.

Then I called about that coupon for a central air installed 1295$. Asked what the deal was with that. I had them come out do a estimate. Since that was free. I let dh do all the talking about the air conditioning. We needed a slight bit bigger unit than the sale offered. That brought it up another 200$. Then a new something that goes from the central air to the furnace had to be put up. So total cost would be 1645$. I said what brand unit will this be. They said Rheem. How long is this price good till. He said till they run out of units. He had 20 of them left. I said can I talk to dh about this and get back to you. Dh says to me. That's a good price. That's a top of the line brand central air. Lets get it. So I put it on the credit card. Since I go back to work next week. I can pay that off in 3 months or less. They will be out Friday to install it. Just in time for another heatwave. Dh says this would of been the price to fix the old air. Now we get a brand new one. It's a flop and a victory all the same.

I am so happy things are starting to come together. I told dh since the air conditioning is on the credit card. Don't get no ideas for any new toys for the computer. We don't buy anything we don't absolutely need. If we can do without. Then we will. That we are tightening up the budget big time till the central air is paid off. Till there is no balance on the credit card again.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering about a tax rebate. Then thought it expired June 31st. But according to what you posted. I guess I'm good till December. Well I save all the stuff for the air conditioning. See what the tax man says at tax time. Wouldn't it be nice to get something back.
