Our heat died last week on the day we got a few inches of snow (not a lot, but still, it was measurable, so that's something and the point is the timing is lousy). It's fixed now, but now we need a new water heater... about $1100 minimum we're told. I was ready to fly to Florida today and Seth landed in the hospital with mysterious abdominal pain yesterday (he's still there, but hopefully coming home today). Tobie has a fever.
WHEN, oh WHEN will the universe give our house a BREAK? I am so tired of this. It's not this year. It was last year too. Will 2011 be ANY better?????
(Seth's okay - but they haven't been able to find the source of his pain. This is frustrating, but does mean it probably isn't anything serious or life-threatening, so we'll at least take that for the moment).
