Interesting. Good thing you got it solved. It does seem like the other unit must have been defective
I’m glad too. Extra $150 for the 12k over the 8k, well worth it.
Much too much is never enough

Yep. Don’t think we’ll ever have to buy a window unit, but if we do, I’ll make sure to overkill the oversize again.

We’re hitting 100° up here today with this wild heat wave we’re getting. This thing is clutch.

That deadline I missed the other week ended up being a very soft deadline. Nobody even mentioned it and everything is good now with the contract modification in place :sweaty:

Oh dang. Just had a weekly tag up with temp boss while my bro is out on paternity leave and they’re awarding me 16 hours of leave for my performance on some shit I took on to help another team and general performance here. :nice: I had the option of cash equivalent, but I want to stack up my leave balances as quickly as I can so went for that instead.

Yeah pretty stoked for that as I have a few trips I need to take later this year and this covers one of them in full. Trying to build my leave balance up to where everything I accrue in a year is “use or lose”.

Flying into vegas this weekend then driving down to Havasu to spend the 4th and a few days with Michelle’s bio-dad and his side of the family.. she had a Turo booked since even a few months back all the rental car companies were fully booked. Got an email from Turo last night that ours was cancelled due to a manufacturer recall on whatever car she had booked. Wild timing. I won’t be mad if we cancel the trip completely.

She was able to grab a cheaper car on Turo this morning :rage:

Not sure on rental car shortage, I think that weekend is just a busy one in Vegas. I looked at Costco’s travel site last night since they show most of the rental companies in the area and not a single one had a car available for the duration of the trip.

Dude, I am not stoked. Apparently their boat rental fell through :iono: or they more likely waited too long or just can’t afford it. So I’m hoping everyone is down to just blast the AC at the Airbnb. I wouldn’t go on the trip at all, but she’s working on repairing the relationship with bio-dad and wants to meet some of her nieces from one of the half-sisters she shared with him so I’m there for moral support.

Dang. Havasu without a boat is 100% :butwhy: I get meeting/hanging with family, but Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome, Prescott, Kingman, St George, etc are all better options within a roughly similar distance from Vegas. Or, just stay in Vegas/Henderson. :iono:

I get it though, you're just going along for the ride and to be supportive. I'm sure it'll be fun in some way.

Yeah I’m pretty :butwhy: on the destination, but DGAF. As long as I can find a gym that’s open on the Fourth so I can go clear my head for a few hours I’ll be fine. Her dad is chill, just wants to smoke weed and drink beer. One of her uncles and cousins stayed a few days with us last fall, they’re cool too. Don’t really know the rest of them, but I’ll make the most of it.
