For the past few weeks it has been cool enough here in Florida to turn off the AC and leave the windows open for a breeze. That is, until this weekend. It got hot again. So I turned on the AC. And it wouldn’t work…WAAAAAAAAHHHHH!
I hate-hate-hate to call an AC repair man in, knowing it will cost us lots of money. At the same time, I am okay with it because we actually HAVE the money in our emergency fund (E-fund). I don’t like having to use it, but that is what it is there for.
I am just praying it is an easy and inexpensive fix and that it doesn’t completely drain our E-fund.
I think if we were debt-free AND had the E-fund built up, then it would be ok. Well, okay in the sense that it wouldn’t affect us too badly. However, if we spend too much of our E-fund, then we have to worry about building it back up again and that’s where my pain lies most.
As I said, it bothers me, but not as much as it would have a year ago.
Do you ever get to a place where you feel okay when emergencies arise because you have the money to pay for it? Or are emergencies always big PITAs and make you wanna scream?
