Well this week has had it's moments. It started on Tuesday. I came home from work with a horrible headache. One of those that makes you upset to your stomach. Yea, not good. So I got in bed around 7pm. I'm laying there, trying to be as still as possible and all of a sudden, I hear the most gawd awful noise. It sounded like there was a monster in the attic, jumping up and down and roaring.
Well, it wasn't a monster. It was our heater! So I got out of bed, turned the heater off and got back in bed. Then I called the Husband to inform him that something was wrong with it. Not that he could do anything about it from work, but I wanted him to know why it wasn't on when he came home.
Yesterday I got home to a cold house. I decided to warm the house up with the oven. I baked the Husband his favorite...Snickerdoodles and made the dogs....Snickerpoodles! Plus I'm volunteering for a big adoption event this Saturday and they are having a bake sale. I wanted to make dog treats for it as well. Both turned out great. All the dogs loved the snickerpoodle cookies. I'll post the recipe if y'all are interested. I left the Husband his cookies on the counter. This morning he told me the cookies were good but were those he ate the human ones? He was hoping so. He's so silly!
Can I just tell you last night was COLD without a heater! I wore a long sleeve shirt, a sweatshirt, long john bottoms and two pairs of socks to bed. (okay, I may be a slight wuss when it comes to cold. Texans aren't used to very cold temps.) As I left the husband with the covers over his head, he told me we WOULD have heat today.
He called the repair man out. The guy told us that our heater was a piece of crap (yea, like our AC that went out 3 years ago). He could replace the parts but it would be better just to replace the entire unit. So now we just have to pay $1600. Ugh! Not what I really wanted for Christmas. He said we could run the heater sparingly until he changes it out on Saturday. It can go completely out at any time. Now it just makes noise but still puts out heat. So at least the house is warm.....loud but warm.
How's your week going?
