So it got worse..

Remember yesterday how I hoped that today would be better.  Yeah, not so much.

I got Little Goat's cold.

BUT Little Goat is much better and was able to go to daycare today.

Little Goat still needs an antibiotic and nebs.

BUT for the first time in forever he didn't need an additional steroid for a cold.  And since it has been almost exactly a year since all our asthma testing things are definitely improving as he ages.

Remember our furnace that the blower died?  Yeah the whole thing is dead - like carbon monoxcide emitting dead (if it were on which it isn't).

BUT it isn't January and 20 below out.

Still we have no A/C for at least a week and it is likely to be hot this week.

BUT we have fans and access to pools.  Also see about RE: Not January.

Furnaces are expensive to replace.

BUT we have time to shop around and knew we'd need one in the next few years so at least we aren't totally unprepared.  (Just mostly unprepared!)

It is annoying but at the same time I can't help but be a bit grateful for what we have.  A year\ago, the thought of having a house seemed impossible.  I was on the verge of my position be cut and forced to walk away from my job and we'd just spent an expensive week in Children's figuring out his asthma stuff.

Now we have a house, I have an new amazing job, and Little Goat is so much healthier.

So yeah, not a great few days, but in the grand scheme of things I can handle it.

Of course if you see ads on the blog in the next few days please click on them...Mama needs a new furnace. 

(That seems like the blogger equivalent of passing the hat right? LOL)

(Seriously though, don't worry, we'll make it through.)

Argh, frustration. Nothing makes me crankier than being too hot, because it makes me lazy. I feel for you, dear. I have amazing A/C at my house (kind of a drive for you), or I'm up for walks in a nice air conditioned mall, too.

If I see ads, consider them clicked! :)

OH that stinks, having to replace a furnance is the worst...good luck. Just think that perhaps the one you will get will be so energy efficient that your utility bills will go down...not that it will make up for the outlay of cash but a positive in all this mess
