But first, for the skeptics in the group – my new shoes are bright – you can see them here.
After getting up early so as to not miss the furnace guy, I headed back to my bed for just a few minutes. I swear, I only closed my eyes for a second. Suddenly, it was 0845 and he had come and gone. I never even heard the buzzer. The Eldest had, and she did the letting him in the door honors and the Mole talked to him.
Obviously, by a few hours later it was obvious that at least some of the radiators were working. Which reminds me – it is “registers” when you have forced air heat and radiators when you have water running through them, right? It may take a few days for everything to warm up, but it is now higher than 12C in the house.
Oh, yes and the missing piano bench I have been hunting since May? It was behind the door in the furnace room where it had been masquerading as a step stool.
