Freezing

Last week, I asked my still-husband, whether we still had enough oil for the furnace in the tanks.

He: "Sure, sure. No problem. Will last all month."

Me: *HAPPY*

I go to work at a convention from Thursday to Sunday night. Come home. No heat. No hot water.

I: WTF!!!

I look into the tank. All empty.

Me: *HATE HUSBAND!*

Then I ordered oil. It came this afternoon. But I have to wait another 2 hours before I can re-start the furnace, because the oil has to settle first. I'm freezing my butt off in here.

Kracken, I know *exactly* how you feel right now!

*wants her nice warm central heating back*

;___;

*snugs you*

I'm sitting in the living room in two sweaters, socks, and a blanket. My car was frozen solid with ice this morning. I saw a sign, yesterday, that someone had hand painted and tacked up that said, Welcome to Sunny Florida. ^_^'

I don't think men actually listen to our questions, they just say yes, fine, and then get all surprised when we find that things are not like we thought. :P

I pulled on another fleece jacket, just to stay warm, and made a large cup of hot spiced wine. I think I'm taking at least one hot water bottle to bed tonight. But at least the heat has come on again - I've managed to convince the furnace to get back to work. *yeah*

It looks like you *really* have a hard winter this year. Not at all normal Florida weather, is it?

How true. I think men just sort of walk through their lives with white noise between their ears - unless certain key words - like soccer, car, or boobs - are spoken. Then they wake up, briefly. ^___^

I read that to Jon and he only heard me when I suddenly said 'boobs', so I think you're right.

A top Un official on climate says we're in for a thirty year mini ice age.

Indeed! But he made good by helping me with organizing a new (used) car for me. Still, I ended up with a cold because of this, so I'm not *that* happy... >.
