Well, yesterday was quite a full day. D and I went shopping in the morning for hats and gloves (where do they always GO at the end of the season??), went and had lunch with daddy, took back cans & bottles and then went to see Harry Potter. It was very good - I'll probably post about it within the next couple of days (sorry Owl - lol!).
Last night was our annual "Fire in the Sky" celebration to kick off the holiday season. There is a big parade with Santa and street vendors & such, and then fireworks - lots of very impressive fireworks. It was rainy and very chilly, but we had a good time. We went to the celebration with D's grandparents and then went to dinner afterwards. D fell asleep with his head on my lap before the entrees arrived. Oh well...it was a quiet dinner for which I was thankful. Grilled Salmon de Burgo. mmmmm.
So, when we arrived home, I noticed it was a bit chilly in the house. Upon checking the thermostat, I discovered that it was 60 in the house and it was set to 68. Wha...? After a considerable amount of time toying with the thermostat and furnace itself, we determined that it just was not working. Gah! We called our furnace guy friend Lee, and he said he'd come look at it in the morning.
Upon waking this morning, it was 56 in the house. Brrrrr! I turned on the heat lamp for the frog and the snake and turned the oven on with the door open, but it's still quite chilly in here. Lee is here now, and said there's a switch gone bad and he doesn't have the right part. Ohh, I hope he can fix it. It's only 35 degrees outside! *shiver*
It's fixed! Hooray for furnace-man friends! He cleaned it all out and fixed the switch and we're all warm and toasty now. yay!
