November is a big month...has a lot going on I should say. It is write a novel in a month month, grow a mustache in support of men's cancers, and it's also national blog posting month. I think you get bragging rights and some form of nerdy street cred for blogging every day. I'm thinking that I could use this in a motivating way to get stuff done!!! If I have to write every day I will probably feel compelled to get something done each day (as I don't want to bore you good folks with nonsense) So, 30 posts should probably reflect 30 home related accomplishments...is that even possible? Oooh competitive up for a challenge Julia....ready...set...go!
As luck would have it, when the furnace guy was checking things out on Wednesday, he noticed that our sensor was on the fritz. So, he removed it and is replacing it today (hopefully this helps with some of the heating issues we have been having. The unfortunate issue is that he had to remove it to fix it. So we haven't had heat since Wed afternoon. This morning was brutal. Our noses were frozen and they were the only things peeking out from our sea of blankets. Thankfully furnace guy is coming back today to put the sensor back in...because I really don't think I could have handled having it any colder. (and I dont think G could have handled listening to me say "...but I'm freeeeeeeezzzzziiiiiing" much longer) I have been reading some frugal living blogs lately and they talk about not turning the furnace on until Nov 1st. I am thinking maybe we should try that next year and save some moolah, however, I think I will need to insist on some sort of fuzzy rug on my side of the bed and a heat lamp in the upstairs bathroom!
