It seems the air conditioner on my car is back on the blink. A couple of months ago it was doing a most unpleasant thing where it would not only not cool down, it would blow hot air for a minute or two, then blow cool air, then hot air again. Now it’s doing the same thing!
It was supposed to be fixed when I took it to the shop in June (I think), and it worked great since then. Now it’s doing this and at the worst possible time – my stepdaughter was in town. I couldn’t exactly drive around town with a baby in a hot car so we were stuck at home trying to figure out a way to get the car to the garage. My husband and I were both off yesterday, but I work today and tomorrow. He’s off tomorrow and I’m off Friday, which was when we were supposed to take my stepdaughter back to South Texas, but we had to change our plans and take her yesterday. Driving a baby four hours in a car with no air conditioning was not fun!
Thankfully my car is still under warranty. I plan to take it back to the same garage and tell them that they were supposed to have fixed this two months ago so I’m not going to pay the deductible a second time. They’re very nice there so I don’t expect there to be a problem but I hope they can fix it in a day because we really need it. I’m within walking distance of work but my husband is definitely not. Maybe my in-laws can give him a ride? We’ll have to think about it a little.
I officially have a cover designer now and she’s wonderful! She hasn’t made too many covers yet but the ones she has made are gorgeous. I’m excited to have her on my team. Still talking to the editor. She’s not available until November but she likes my manuscript, so I’m going back and forth. She seems like she’s worth the wait, though, and if she’s swamped that just means she’s good and thorough. I’m excited, it’s all coming together!
