A Note of Gratitude

As much as I've been moaning and complaining here lately, I just thought I'd mention a few answered prayers, and say how grateful I am:

--A ride so I can take my daughter to her Honors Band practice session this Friday.

--A ride for some appointments I have next month

--The fact that my new schedule is working out so nicely with my energy levels and time.

--That my daughter's doctor gave us enough free samples of her meds to last until we get health insurance.

--That I was able to use some of the savings on the meds to go to the chiropractor yesterday (much needed!).

--The fact that the blower on our furnace is now blowing beautifully. Last week it was grinding and not blowing once the temp inside hit 64 degrees.

Ok, now I'm gonna moan about one itty bitty thing: IT'S A FREAKIN' FIFTY-FIVE DEGREES IN MY HOUSE BECAUSE THAT WELL-FUNCTIONING BLOWER IS ONLY BLOWING COLD AIR!

So, today we are going to bundle in cold weather sleeping bags and read books and sip hot bevarages whilst awaiting the heater guy (And no, I'm NOT calling Stewart Air Conditioning and Heating who have been tinkering with our ill functioning Trane Furnace off and on all winter. No, they've lost my business. I want someone who can actually get this thing working.)

Last week when the furnace guy was here, he mentioned that a certain part sounded loud, but that if it went out, the whole thing would not work (so I don't think that's the problem). He said it would cost four or five hundred to fix it, which he, personally would not do. HE would spend four or five THOUSAND to get a back yard unit installed. Geeez, that makes FINANCIAL SENSE!!!!!

Ugh. Furnace problems are not good.

However, other things are good, thanks be to God!
