Life is not easy. Especially when you are in a family of invisible illnesses and disabilities. It can be serious, funny and downright hard! But we make it. Just like everyone else. We just do it in a different style.

Short Update

Just a short message today.

The kids have to get haircuts today and we need to do grocery shopping. I am starting the third week of new classes and the work will begin to pile up from here on out. I love how teachers lull you in the beginning and then BAM!, read 8 chapters and give me 2000 words on this inane subject written in APA style.

But I digress.

I just wanted to let everyone know...WE HAVE HEAT!

Yes, our homeowners' insurance office sent someone over to look at our poor old furnace. It turned out to be a busted thermostat (!!) and a connection that needed to be reset on the furnace. Another person told us that the gas valve had died and the whole furnace needed to be the tune of $1800.

The guy from the insurance told us that even though it is the original furnace: "you know, they don't make them like this anymore and you have more life left to it."

In other words, the furnace is fine. *Sigh*

All I can say is paying the $335 was better than $1800...and my Popsicle Toes have thawed out.
