Not only do I have a new hot water tank, I have a new furnace too. Talk about your impulse shopping. Now I am pretty sure I wasn't taken for a ride. The furnace I did have in my house was over 20 years old so it was not going to last much longer. When the guy came to give me an estimate on the tank he told me about a number of changes to the building code about furnaces and how mine was installed. I asked him to give me the code paragraphs and yep.... he was able to provide me with the info. I now have a high efficiency furnace and an energy star hot water tank. The bonus is because I've done the energy audit I'll be able to get some rebates which will pay for part of the furnace. So like, it was a deal, right?
Okay, and it had NOTHING to do with the sales guy who told me how delicious my perked coffee was, or how he too was newly separated. And he was French. That had NOTHING to do with it.
WHO goes out to get a water tank and lands a furnace instead?! That would be me. The Ultimate shopper.
Leave me at home if you're going out to buy a potato peeler. I'll send you home with an
entire restaurant or something just a little less extravagant.
Moving on .
I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.
