Sorry mama, but I busted out laughing when I got to this point. It does bring back memories though. We moved in our current house in August 06, by November we had repaired the leaking roof, relined the chimney, installed a hot water heater and replaced a cracked boiler. All of these were surprises, and not fun. Glad to hear your update, sounds like things are good, for now (fingers crossed?). By the way our doorbell is still broken.
