Warmth at the end of the tunnel

As we speak my furnace is being replaced. Or at least I hope so. That is what the letter on our door yesterday said. Nine A.M. Well its 9:18 and it had better be underway. Nik graciously volunteered to stay and over see the whole process (plus he wanted a hot shower, cause contrary to what they told us, we do not still have hot water.). I look forward to an update when they are finished.

Last night we were disappointed and frozen to find out that we did not have hot water. But because wifey here was so amazing freezing Nik boiled at least six pots of water so we could take a warm bath. And warm is was. I am usually not a fan of really hot baths, but I think that my body was trying to stock pile the warm for later when it would be gone. After the bath we blasted the heater in the bedroom and cuddled in to watch Chuck.

It was a good night.

Oh, and I never thought I would find myself grateful for the snow, but last night was about 10 degrees colder than the night before, and it is all due to the snow. That layer of clouds kept me from freezing two nights ago. Unlike the clear skys we had last night that resulted in a Popsicle Lena.

Oh, you should have come over to our house. We would have given you warmth. I hope they fix it today. I wish you lots of warmth and that it is fixed in a timely manner.
