Where Does One Go To Buy A Furnace?
Last night, in the middle of the night, we woke up to the smell of something burning. After a frantic check of the house (inside and out) we pinpointed the source of the smell to the heating vents. So we bundled up and went, at 3:00 am to my mom's house. The HVAC guys confirmed that we need a new furnace. It was 30 years old. It lived a good life. So tomorrow new furnace & ac for us (woohoo!)
Being the 3 year old that he is, Munchkin was burning with questions a little curious about why we'd be having another sleepover at Grandma's. Broken furnace, we explained. Munchkin thought about it for a minute and then his face lights up - "I have an idea" (yes, this is one of his new phrases) "let's just buy a new one at Walmart!" Try to suppress laughter when your oh-so-serious and oh-so-proud-of-himself little boy says that. I dare you. I swear I gave myself a headache. And note to self...spend less time at Walmart.
Clearly we spend waaaaay too much time at Walmart!
