If you can get a keg tub or 32 gallon trash can, put your carboy in it and fill around it with water.
Also cool the wort down to 62-64 before pitching and give it a double pitch if you can, then hopefully it wont matter as much if it warms up past 68-70.
You should really consider some sort of fermentation temperature control, a cheap freezer chest on CL and a $45 Ranco controller, and 20 min to wire it up. It will be the best brewing investment you ever made. Last freezer chest I got on CL was $20, I've had it for 3 years now no problems.
