My husband, Vincent, and I have been living in the same house for over twenty years now.
We purchased this house about two weeks before our wedding, so it has quite a special place in our hearts.
I cannot imagine us ever leaving this house. We have made so many fond memories here. All three of our children were born in this house, and I can still picture them as little toddlers running around in the hallway. I hope that someday I will be able to see our little grandchildren running around that same hallway. We have done quite a bit of repair on this old house, but one thing that we never touched was the air conditioning system. It has worked fine for us these past twenty years, so we never even thought about replacing it or even getting it serviced. It was a mistake to not get it serviced because we have had some issues with it this summer. We have had some unusually hot weather the past couple of weeks, and our air conditioner has had quite a bit of trouble keeping the house cool. We thought that maybe it was because it was just so hot, but the temperature has finally dropped back down to normal, and the air conditioner is still not able to cool the house down to the temperature that we have it set at. We called an HVAC company and got a quote for the cost of them just coming and diagnosing the issue, and it was an outrageous price. My husband is going to see if he can fix the air conditioner himself to save us a lot of money.
