Today I am letting myself off the hook, as the temperature is currently 58 degrees in our house as we await our new furnace installation tomorrow. My fingers are too cold when I type on an average day, but just now I froze my buns sitting on the leatheresque office chair. I will be here with the random tomorrow afternoon (as I am sure the furnace man will be much happier if I have something planned, other than shuffling stuff around my basement and asking him for moral support as I figure out what to get rid of).
Before I sign off though, I must share what I am thankful for today...I am thankful that I called National Grid when I thought I smelled gas outside this morning. It was actually carbon monoxide...you know that odorless gas...unless there is enough of it pumping out of your furnace. Yes, we have a detector near our bedrooms, and I will be buying at least one more tomorrow, and no it had not gone off...yet. It is the yet part that kept me rattled for several hours today, as one of the furnace people commented that he had never seen a reading so high in a residential furnace stack before.
Please protect your family, and have functioning detectors. Our house is only twelve years old, so I was a bit stunned. Time to go snuggle up with my peeps...good night from my chilly nose to my chilly, and as I said before, ever so grateful toes! xoxox
