*Sigh* First the Sewer and Now This!

I am having problems with my Internet connection and my furnace.

They both frustrate me, but I know which one is going to cost me.

Of course, it is the coldest day of winter here. One degree outside, and the furnace blower motor blows at about 4 p.m., filling my house with the smell of burning money rubber.

Naturally, it was too late to get an appointment today, so I had to call the "on-call technician." Read: "This guy charges overtime."

I warmed the boys' room with a space heater before I put them down and luckily Amelia's staying with Sarah tonight. The repairman is here now and fortunately has the right part. Now I'm just hoping the boys don't wake up from the noise of the repair.

I hate to pay the extra, but I'm on my own this week and I can't take the boys and their gear to a hotel tonight without an extra set of hands. The house is already 56 degrees, so I can only imagine how cold it would be by morning.

On the plus side, I finally have an excuse tonight to sit still and use the Snuggie my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas!

Must be something going around - our heat pump shorted out on Thursday night too. Perfect timing.
