Furnaces and A/C

Whew! The "furnace guy", as I call him, just left. Our downstairs furnace has been broken for many years and I was too afraid to call and get it fixed because I thought it was going to cost a fortune. Last winter, the upstairs furnace stopped working, as well. That was a much bigger problem because the kid's bedrooms are upstairs. We have the fireplace downstairs, so we didn't freeze, but no fireplace upstairs. Then the upstairs air conditioning stopped working. I don't think it is possible to live where we do without air conditioning. I'm sure some people do, but I can't imagine it. I knew I had to call and get it fixed. While the repairman was here, I said a quick prayer that it wouldn't cost too much because we really need that money for much more important things. I owe a huge thank you to God because the total for fixing both furnaces and the air conditioning, plus a new thermostat was only $300!!!! I can't tell you how relieved I am, I was thinking it would be thousands. Now I can relax and enjoy Shauna's graduation without that hanging over my head.

That would have been awesome, had he actually fixed it. The upstairs A/C is still broken!
