Just a quick update for those darlings out there who have been worrying about me being without heat and without hot water. Got the heat back!
Naturally, it is a long story and I am not ready to tell it yet, but, suffice it to say,......(what a stupid, meaningless, tortured phrase that is.....I apologize for using it).....as I was saying, what I have done is gotten a carbon monoxide monitor and turned the heating system back on. I did this yesterday around midafternoon. The heat is blissful and the monitor has stayed strangely silent. Hmmmmm.
Now, I am beginning to wonder if that MF Plumber who told me about the crack in my heater and the carbon monoxide was just pulling a big con on me.........I am taking a while to think about that.....I am still fairly calm but I am afraid that if I relax for just a moment I will have to rush out and murder that MF Plumber......
Meanwhile I am both calm and WARM.
