The Heater Hates Me

So, no heat for us today. Or rather, we have replaced a part that will temporarily allow us a bit of heat, but at much lower temps than we are used to…because another part is broken, which made the “engine” (for lack of better word) of the heater overheat…and that could break any time now. Unfortunately, everyone up to and including the company that makes the heater seems to be out of that particular part, so who knows when it can be fixed. Oh the joy. Fortunately, the children and I are blanket hoarders.
