The joys of being an adult

Got a bonus this year. Thought that's great, extra money to blow. Well, as they say, the best laid plans. . . we woke up this morning and the furnace wasn't working. It was about 55 in the house. The repairman was here for over 3 hours. Easy come, easy go; I'm sure that will take a big chunk of my bonus! At least it happened today when we could get a repairman. If it had been tomorrow, we probably would have froze until Monday.

Oh well, I would rather be warm than have something new.

Merry Christmas!!

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq
    Let’s just stay together and tell the world to kiss our ass. ~P

    Probably not. My brother does AC/heating work, and he is on call for many holidays for just this sort of thing. It would be a higher cost repair tomorrow due to higher labor cost, but someone probably would still come out. No heat is treated pretty seriously.
    Kiva! Microfinance works.

    Our furnace stopped working last year on Christmas Day. We called around and found a company that sent a guy over within 2 hrs. It was great, and we were so thankful that we were able to get someone to come over that same day.

    Glad you were able to get you furnace repaired. Merry Christmas!

    Shortly after the repairman left, we had to leave for Christmas in Pittsburgh for 24 hours. Think they wanted us to stay longer, but I just wanted to get home to make sure the furnaces was, in fact, working properly. And it was!!

    We had to have an air conditioning unit replaced on the 4th of July one year and a water heater replaced on New Years Eve! I do believe in gremlins! :)

    It gets better. Did a load of laundry today. When I went to put them in the dryer, I realized the washer was not spinning. The belt came off (2nd or 3rd time this has happened). So now we have to have another repairman!! Aren't things supposed to happen in 3's? Hate to think what else is going to go wrong.
