yesterday our fridge stopped working
last night our heat stopped working
I think our house hates us
(our furnace is running, but the fan isn't working, so when I checked the daily usage on our thermostat last night...it said it had been on for 17 hours yesterday
I think I am going to cry. It is usually only on for 3-4 hours per day and our gas bill last month was over $300
We are going to have to leave it off for a week to make up the difference )
our landlord is leaving for India for 3 months tomorrow and I hate to have to spring all of this on her today when she is busy getting ready for her trip...but we already lost everything in our fridge that wasn't still cool enough to transfer to the chest freezer downstairs and we are having a hard enough time affording food lately as it is
and it's 52 degrees in our house
Ethan keeps saying "I cold...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"
my FIL is going to bring over a space heater later today...but I am not sure how well that will work in here with this big open floor plan (and frankly, I'll be afraid to leave it on overnight since I hear so much about space heaters causing house fires and we don't have renters insurance)
I guess I'll do laundry tonight since the dryer helps keep the top floor of the house warm
and we thought we would be so much better off when we moved from our old house to this one
the house was built in 2003 and the dang thing is in self-destruct mode!
