Applying window film
So, I am a hot blooded chick... I cant stand to be warmer than 68 degrees and my heatpump on 90 degree days just doesnt cut it.... not to mention I cant sleep when I am warmer than that... so.... long story long...(lol) after 2 weeks before surgery on May 21 up until now.... I have not slept for more than four hours at a time without being awake for 8 afterwards..... so last night, I finally got the bright idea to put the window AC unit in, in the bedroom, it was cooling nicely, and I had to be anal retentive and put cardboard up at either side.... so as I was putting up the cardboard I pushed a little too hard, knocked the window unit out and destroyed it.... after crying for an hour ( I know it was silly, but I was miserably hot)... I just went to bed......
which brings me to today..... or actually yesterday since it is 145 in the morning.... I went to lowes and bought window film for the front of the house... it gets direct sunlight from 6am until about5 or 6 pm...... so, I put the film on 3 of the 4 front windows tonight... and I will try to put it on the storm door tomorrow hopefully. As for the fourth window, well it has a crack in it and the window film box says not to put it on a window with a crack.....
So anyways, it was an adventure on the first two but the third was done in 22 seconds... literally.
As for tomorrow, I am gonna scrub the windows where they meet the drywall really really well and recaulk all of them.... maybe that will help! I am gonna try to upload a picture....
And if you have never bought this stuff before it is EXPENSIVE!!! but... it does qualify for a tax credit.... lol i got the 3' wide X15 foot long section and it was 35.00 per box, that was enough for 3 35x56 windows plus a little left over.
Ignore the junk in the backgrond please...!!!! lol
