Things are heatin up around here

Yay! I finally have a new furnace after going without for 4 days. I can't complain too much because it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The nice thing about having a small place is that it's easier to keep warm. For some reason that doesn't seem to translate to keeping it cool in the summer though. I ended up just moving the heater around to what ever room I was in and it did the job pretty well. Although the toilet seat was always pretty cold. The down side is that I walked into my bathroom tonight to find this lovely new pipe added.

Really adds to the decor. Maybe I just need to decorate the rest of the room as urban chic. Again, I shouldn't complain though because I opened the utility closet to see the new furnace and I got a new water heater too. I didn't know there was anything wrong with the water heater, other than the fact that the pipe above it drips and so the water heated was kind of covered in rust. Hopefully these two new additions will lead to lower gas bills.

I LOVE "urban chic." Keep it. Glad you'll be keeping warm.

I think you should decoupage it with leaves to match your shower curtain. Yay for new and more efficient heaters!

I just about keeled over today when Britta showed me our gas bill. Not only is it high because we have a bigger place and more space to heat, but we pay a lot more "per CCF" than we did in Utah.

No kidding. I don't want to hear any complaints about Utah gas bills - now I know why Dad put that nail in the wall to prevent us from turning the thermostat up!
