Painting and needed a/c

My family lives in an older home that had been remodeled prior to us purchasing it.  However,  over the last couple of years the exterior paint had started to peel off.  Needless to say, I did not want to spend money to have someone come to paint the house for us.  There weren’t but a few areas that needed to be painted, plus I felt like I could entirely do it myself pretty easily.  Well, once I started, I quickly found out that it was going to be a much larger job than I was anticipating.  However, it was forecast that we were to  have a month long stretch of wonderful weather so I decided to go for it.  I purchased the paint plus all the supplies I needed plus headed home to get started.  I thought the weather was suppose to be cooler, but boy was I wrong! It was so warm that first afternoon I walked outside plus got on that ladder! I was so disheartened, but I knew I had to get going.  So, in preparation, I opened up my smart thermostat app on my cell phone and made sure the house was nice plus cool for when I needed to take breaks.  I set the thermostat to a cool 65 degrees plus ended up being absolutely satisfied every time I came inside for a water break.  I can’t imagine what I would have done without that smart thermostat that we purchased from our local HVAC contractor.  I originally wasn’t too excited about spending the money on one, but now that I see all of the uses for it, I couldn’t be happier!
