Hello. The furnace on my house died yesterday. I needs a new one. Furnace guy can't get there until next Tuesday or Wednesday. Fortunately, my daughter and her mother are gone for the holidays so no one is in the house. Except the cat. I am going there everyday to feed him and turn on heaters if necessary. It could be worse. We are having a mild winter so far. But, still, 3,500 balloons at xmas. And me not working full time. Darn! Thankfully, we have a bit tucked away in a rainy day account. Big bummer. I may have to go and get a real job sooner than planned.

Rock,

Your post reminds me of the Delaney sisters.

Papa always told them to save for a rainy day but, he never told them it would rain this hard or this long!

Wishing you the best of luck on this one!

So I sent Christmas cookies to my parents. I didn't know at the time my brother was flying out (he lives near me--he could've taken the cookies instead of having to send them UPS). I called to make sure the package arrived--my mother is hiding the cookies in the bathroom (dementia is an issue with her) and my brother is complaining about his allergies...wish I was the one celebrating Christmas with my parents. ARGGH!

Ughhhh.... I hope it gets sorted out soon! I remember when i lived in NY years ago andt the hot water tank went. I had heat, but no hot water. It's so sweet of you to keep the cat taken care of. My thoughts are with you.

When I was going to college, I lived with my mom for a bit. She had a thing for Campbell's broccoli-cheese soup. I kept the apartment when she moved out. I was cleaning stuff out one day in the pantry and found a can of that soup hidden in a coffee urn that she forgot to take with her.
