notamascot: (Don't Wanna)
[personal profile] notamascot
So, in addition to the 6+ feet of snow dumped on us up here in New Hampshire and my ice dam woes (once on the front, second needing the whole roof shoveled and ice broken off) and the subsequent small leak in the ceiling and my car battery dying at a very inconvenient time and my beloved grandmother dying...

What? That's not enough? Apparently not.

I have also been having furnace issues. But hey, it's not like it wasn't the coldest February on record or anything with overnight temperatures generally below zero - oh wait. I thought it was fixed the first week in February with a replaced air filter, but I woke up very early last Saturday - first week of my school vacation - with no heat. I can generally get it restarted, though it often takes one to eight hours to get it running correctly again, and it generally works all day and just ('just', oh, it is to laugh!) goes out in the wee hours of the morning (every single night it goes off). Which means that I have not gotten more than an hour or two of broken sleep in over a week. My days have been spent texting with or waiting for the furnace guy - and two 'fixes' which weren't and absolutely no vacation activity or relaxation. I've been too obsessed with listening for the furnace/stressed over what's going on to do much of anything and tomorrow I am back to work with the knowledge that it is still not fixed and the expectation that I will again be up all night running space heaters and making sure water is running in multiple faucets so my pipes don't freeze.

I apologize for being non-existent and/or sketchy and hope it will clear up soon. Theoretically my guy will be here tomorrow to replace the exhaust and pressure switch which the manufacturer assures us will fix the problem. Whether he makes it here (his week was pretty jinxed last week as well, I think I'm contagious) and whether this works - well, I desperately hope so and please, if you've got a good thought, prayer, positive energy to spare and throw my way, I'd appreciate it.
