In preparation for the trip BusyMom took the vehicle in for a check-up.
Washer fluid refilled
A/C .... whoa! A/C???
Yep, the A/C is broken.
I told HeMan Hubby it was, back in March, when we apparently did not speak the same dialect.
He SAID he understood.
He SAID the part was a recall issue and was being ordered...
back in MARCH!
So The BusyFamily packs up and heads out...
South on 95 on a SUNNY, HOT Friday in July...
(read:the surface of the sun would have been more comfortable!)
Through that wonderous land called NORTHERN VIRGINIA and into the land of Smoked Hams and Giant Sombreros and beaches begging for sand castles and children to appear.
Yes, we sat on 95S, with no air conditioning, with all windows open, wet hand towels across our laps, necks and foreheads as we crawled along at negative miles an hour, through Virginia, North amd South Carolina!
Somewhere along the way... I think it was about 10 minutes after we started LOADING THE VAN!
HeMan Hubby turned on the A/C.
What are you doing? I asked
Getting the A/C going so it will be cooled down when the kids get in. HeMan Hubby replied.
Why? The A/C doesn't work. It's broken. You said the part is on back order for the recall so IT'S NOT FIXED YET! I answered oh so very calmly.
Oh, you mean it doesn't get cold at all? He asked incredulously.
Ummm, No. That's what I meant when I said the Air Conditioning doesn't work!
And thus began The BusyFamily Vacation of 2010...
