Midsummer Eve

With the first day of Summer finally here, Amy wanted the window air conditioner installed. This is not one of my favorite things. (cue Julie Andrews) First the heavy thing has to be lugged up from the basement. Then it all has to be reassembled in the window. Which boards did I use to fill the gaps on the side? Is this piece the one that holds the sash in place? Did I remember to block it up on the outside sill? Will the electric circuit hold the extra pull or do I need to move some cords to different plugs? And once all these questions have been satisfactorily answered, we end up with one room cutoff from the rest of the house. We go from living in a 2,000 sq ft house to a 200 sq ft room. Oh well, guess I'd better go cool off a bit in the new ice box.
