There have certainly been better weeks than this. Boiler went out on Wednesday. After two days of nagging the gas company (and running the little space heaters pretty much 24/7), the service guy finally showed up and fixed the boiler. Then he said that he couldn’t leave the boiler or the water heater turned on since the “chimney liner isn’t venting properly.” I didn’t even know what a chimney liner was. Of course, the repair company protocol is not to recommend anybody. At all. This meant a few hours trying to figure out WHO to call and then trying to find someone who actually has availability. Finally got somebody who will come out first thing this morning. Hopefully this means we’ll have heat and hot water tomorrow.
Tell me a funny story – I need the laughs!
