When does it ever end???? Day 2

So yesterday ended up not so bad. Geoff bothered me some, but he's my husband, he's supposed to do that, right? We found out at dinner time that there would be no school again! I was thinking about going insane and committing myself, but what good would that do?

9 pm. Kids tucked away in bed. Macy sneaking a book under the covers.

9:15. I thought, man its cold in here. I got some fuzzy socks and was thinking how crappy the episode of Fringe was.

9:20. Man its really cold in here. Sent Geoff to go check it out.

YEP. The furnace is out again! We have had it serviced like 5 times and my house is only 5 years old!!!! I called Carrier last year and a nice young gentleman told me that I was SOL and to get over it. So, yes. He had the last word.

So its snowing outside and getting colder every hour. Who knows how long it was out since we had the oven on from dinner and kids were dancing around the living room to PureNRG all night. Which by the way gives me a massive headache.

So we figure that since everyone is sleeping, we'll just bundle them up with extra blankets and decide what to do in the morning.

6 am. Its effing cold in my house and there is 5-6-7 inches of snow outside.

7 am. Called the heating dude and he said he can't get to my house until about noon! Yeah thats not gonna work. He claims he was snowed in!

Geoff headed off to work because I don't think that he could take another day of yesterday and cold combined. So I get the girls to my MIL's and head off to my small group that I was an hour late for because it took me over an hour to drive a 25 minute drive because of the road conditions. That, and no one knows how to drive in inclement weather. I really had too many things on my mind to pay much attention at small group except when we were discussing irritations that we have no control over. For example my husband told me this morning not to worry about the furnace, "Its only the heat." he said. ONLY THE HEAT! WTH is wrong with him. He's all calm and collected because he's in his nice warm office doing nothing, while I am driving the kids all over God's Creation to keep them effing warm! BUT I hate it when this happens, but he's totally right. I can't worry about what I have no control over. I can't un-snow in the heater dude. I am not the one that broke the effing furnace. BUT I can complain to make myself feel better. So during all of this I have to figure out how I am going to pay for the heater dude, and I stopped at the bank. Who later called me to tell me that I somehow had left my drivers license there!!! OMG, when does it end? SO I head back to the bank, get my license then go to Wal-Mart to find a little space heater, because I can't sit in my freezing cold house while I wait for the heater dude that said he would be out at noon, then 2:30 and he finally showed up 3:30. Freak is here right now. I hit the RedBox at Wal-Mart and was able to get FireProof. I read the book and hope that Kirk Cameron starring in it doesn't ruin it for me. BUT then I realized what today is. ITS Wednesday and that means my beloved LOST is on tonight, so I guess that Fire Proof is going to cost me $2. Whats $2 when I am going to have to fork over my life's savings on this stupid furnace.

So what have I gained from today? I got to listen to talk radio in my car by myself! And I got to hear what they were talking about too! And I have quiet blog time. Its quiet mad angry blog time, but quiet, nonetheless.

And Facebook is down. Whats up with that? Ok. nevermind its back up.

Geez, he's coming back in to give me my bill.......

Wow, I had that day 2 years ago while my hubby was overseas...it was 41 degrees in the house when they came to fix us!!! Hope your toes get warm soon, maybe looking at the furnace guy's bill will heat you right up!

Shannon said...

Been there and done that these last few months. It's not getting any better yet in our neck of the woods, but we're hoping that some TIME SOON our luck turns the other way.!!
