Luckily we have been saved more than plenty my Service Plus through centerpoint. They were out to our house my 11am. They figured out the problem, a dead motor in the fan that pushed the heat out. However, the repair man did not have the part along with him.
He MAYBE located one about 45 minutes away. His company didn't want him to drive there and back with the risk of it not being 100% certain they indeed had the part. So a courier service was going to deliver it. Once I received the part, I was to call Service Plus to have them send a repair person ASAP, as we still had no heat.
It could arrive in an hour and it could be the next day, there was just no knowing.
Reid didn't like the unknown. I tried to assure him everything was fine, and it really wasn't that cold anymore. It was warm enough to take my vest off...which has now become an silly line between us. Because we were walking around the house wearing winter jackets like it was normal. Probably had to be there to think it was funny :)
Luckily we have our fireplace, which provided quite a bit of heat. We also have 3 space heaters, that we frequently used at our old house and it was a full sun day. The house didn't get terribly cold. I was just weary about what we would do at night. Would we leave the fireplace on overnight?
Luckily we didn't have to make that decision. The part arrived at 1pm and the repair man was here at 4pm and done by 4:30pm with a working furnace. The best part was our Thermostat was set to 68 and the repair man had to come up and turn the thermostat up because it was warmer than 68 in our living room and that was an entire day with no heat. See? Plenty warm to take my vest off :)
All that is to say, we're thankful for a working furnace. For a roof over our head and for services like Service Plus!
Sundays are off days with Mason's typical nap schedule because we go to Mass at 8:30am. When we get home from Mass we put him down for a quick nap, but will often wake him up to make sure we will still get an afternoon nap. So hard to wake a precious sleeping baby.
I have a feeling it won't be much longer until he's down to just one nap a day. Bittersweet, but mostly sweet as it'll free up our mornings to go out and run errands!
Cool with their sunnies on
...pay no attention to the fact that Mama needs a fresh coat of paint :)
