Murphy...please leave!

You've heard of Murphy's Law, right? Well I think Murphy is trying to move in. Yesterday I got a knock on the front door. The garbage man informed me that his auto trash can lifter thingie hit my mailbox and knocked it over. I stepped outside to see this.....

Then later that night, I was feeling a little chilly, so I put a blanket on. Dennis got home around 9 p.m. and stated how cold the house was. 63 degrees. I'm usually cold, so I was wearing a turtleneck, a wool sweater, a scarf and had a blanket across my lap. So I noticed it was cold, but I was warm. He fiddled with the furnace and got it working. We went to bed.

Our upstairs furnace kept us nice and toasty all night. However, when I came downstairs to get Isaiah ready for school I stepped into frosty coldness! (btw, it is 12 degrees outside today!)

So I've retreated to the game room, where there is a computer, a tv and a heating unit (like you would find in a hotel room). I am toasty warm and I'm waiting for the furnace man to arrive.
He was just here in November fixing the same furnace. Wonder if it will be the same part again?

Anyway, come back tomorrow for a new post. We had a surprise Sweet 16 party for Evan on New Years Eve. Lots of pictures to share!

Stay warm!!

Oh no! I was just about to do a post about things that have been going wrong around here as well. What's going on?
Hope you stay warm & that furnace man arrives soon.
