Sticker Shock

Okay, holy CRAP is that estimate higher than I'd expected/hoped - by an exponential factor.  But I WANTS it!

I obviously need to spend some quality time with my fancy spreadsheet and see if I can make this work.  Because aside from the sheer desperation of a woman who hates summer, hates sweating, and loathes being hot, it would be a very good capital investment in the house.

I had a feeling it was going to be pricey. On the other hand, if it's more efficient that defrays some of the payment because your energy bills will be lower.

Oh, I had a feeling that it was going to be pricey also - no surprise there. I just underestimated the scale. I keep remembering a comment from a show or a movie or something years and years ago - "it's an exponential scale - you know, like the Richter."

I'm going to do it - it's a good system, a good investment, and there are too many reasons to go forward. But my GOD. I've bought CARS for less than that...

I have one idea that I need to bounce off Bob when he gets home that may do the trick. Wish I would have thought about it while the guy was still here, but I was trying not to visibly flinch.
