My Wife and Kids Were Overheated

When my wife called me crying a few weeks ago, I thought the worst had happened. We have four children, and I thought something happened to one of them. She didn’t make me wait too long though, for which I am extremely grateful. She told me that she was at her wit’s end, because she was not able to get the air conditioner working at our house.

I quickly found a company that was able to get out there that day, and I called my wife back so she knew to expect them.
