In the Den

We knew something was wrong with our heat when we left for dinner this evening, but we didn't think it warranted a call to the furnace guy. We figured our employers had spent enough money on us this week with a furnace repair, a furnace tune up, and a brand new dishwasher since our old one conked out).

Unfortunately they'll be getting another bill for tomorrow. The pilot light is out on the boiler. There are wires coming out of all four sides with no clear way to remove a panel even if we did know how to safely light a pilot light. Earlier in the day we noticed that the thermostat wasn't budging from 62 degrees even though the temps were changing depending on what I turned the dial to. That sort of issue can wait until Monday. No heat with lows in the 20's and highs in the 30's can't wait. First thing in the morning we'll be giving the furnace guy a wake up call.
At least we caught the problem before we went to bed. I put extra blankets on the kids and brought their monitors into our room so I could make sure they stayed covered and warm.
Seems fitting that I chose tonight to become a bear. We're going to need the warm fur tonight!


  1. Oh, no! I can't wait to hear how the night went. You could've all slept in those cuddly bear outfits!:)

    I seem to remember a heating problem when I was little and we all slept on the floor in front of the fireplace.
