Our heat pump broke late Thursday night, or in the wee hours Friday morning, so we have been without central heat for 6 days. Let me tell ya, it hasn’t been fun. But, with a fireplace we have survived by camping out in the living room.
Thanks to a wonderful friend and a depleted bank account, we now have heat!
Last year just about every appliance in my house broke. And while the heat pump actually broke in 2010, this year looks to be shaping up to be about the same. After Mike left from getting the heat fixed I went to put a load of clothes in my dryer and it broke…AGAIN. This is about the 4th or 5th time with this piece of no good junk of a dryer. Of course it is out of warranty. While I love the brand this particular model has been a lemon from day one and it was so expensive that I felt bad even thinking of replacing them. Now, I have spent way more on the continuous repairs that I probably could have bought several new pairs. One day I am going to finally give up on them and throw them out the door.
In other news Abigail is in heat and every dog within a 10 mile radius is probably going to show up on my doorsteps. So, she will be soon having a playdate with Jethro and we will be sending out baby thank you cards.
Erin and Tate have both started back to school. The first week of December Tate had finished all of his curriculum that I bought back in July so we have had to start all over again.So, we took most of December off while I research what we wanted to study next and so that we could celebrate all of the Holidays without worrying about working school into the mix.
Now, it’s time to figure out supper and head out to karate. I sure hope 2011 started out better for you!
