My heater is playing games with me. It stopped producing warm air a few weeks ago. The heating company that fixed it in November wouldn't come out to look at it without charging us, so we sat with a broken heater until my husband (spurned on by his moody wife's tears at 330 in the morning over the fact that she is just tired of being cold) Turned it on today and warm air flooded my house.

I try to be very uncomplainey about things that there is no help for. We have fire places and space heaters but not the thousands of dollars it would take to replace my heating system. and a fire place, although beautiful, does not heat my house as quickly as the heater.

Last night I had a breakdown when we got home. And now my heater is working. But for how long?

So I am working nights. kinda. I work from about 3pmish to 1 am or so. I am doing bookkeeping, project prep, and child sitting for my boss while he and my husband are cleaning a playset he made years ago. It's this 4 story activity learning jungle gym thing that will take 2 weeks to clean. I don't mind the bookkeeping. It's not what I was hired for at first but I seem to be doing well.

anyway. I am sick, I think. I just don't feel right and I am extremely tired.

Didn't you guys just buy this house? Was the heater checked as part of the overlooking before purchase so that maybe the old owners have to pay for it to be replaced?
