The excitement and joy of the holidays is now in the Memory Book.
It's getting a little more challenging to find the "blog worthy" in this everyday life.
Callie, my helper cat, thinks she is being helpful while I correct papers...
not so much.
I told you about our frigid weather recently.
This is the door to our department.
It appears to be frozen shut!
New classes, new students, new curriculum...
We were off to a slow start this semester, due to weather related releases and late starts.
Plus it is cold and flu season...Our students and staff experienced some influenza, strep throat and a stomach bug.
Lots of empty desks that first week.
On the home front...
A week ago we awoke to a chilly house.
Hubby went down to check out the furnace.
(Remember the movie, A Christmas Story?
Ralphie's dad goes down to the basement to fix the furnace??
That's what it sounded like here that morning!)
Anyway, we had to call in a professional.
And the weekend labor rates?
Two days later we awoke to water dripping from the ceiling in the laundry room.
Seems the refrigerator hose had sprung a leak.
And not just a little leak...behind the fridge, it was spraying water like a fountain.
Hubby was able to fix this problem.
His labor rates are...well, priceless.
Here she is...back in place...restored to her glory.
I hope it's not true that bad things happen in three.
We can't afford another appliance problem this month!
Stay safe and warm.
