Top seven ways you know its time to replace your furnace

7. Your children spend abnormal time in their "blanket nests."

6. You dress your babies in snowsuits...inside.

5. You overhear your children playing "Ice Age"

4. You change your coffee from a mug to an insulated tumbler.

3. Your science experiments involve finding "Things That Keep Us Warm"

2. You take up baking with the incentive of turning on the oven.

1. You stop putting the babies teethers in the refrigerator.

We do seem to adapt, huh? :)

That made me smile because we're in the same boat. =) We just keep waiting for the year when ours doesn't turn on in the fall, but it's still kicking . . . barely. Our babysitters freak out because it's so loud!

you have a way with words. I love it! (get those babies warm!)

Ha! This will be us in a month - I just found out how much it is to fill up our propane tank which only lasts about 3 months apparently. But for right now, I wanted to turn on the air conditioning last night and all the ceiling fans are running!

No worries...the babies are staying warm. The bedroom doors close during the day and we use our space heater. During the night, the heater migrates to their room where they stay cozy all night. ;)

The morning are cold, however, so the babies actually DO sport their little snowsuits.

On the schedule: three estimators coming this week!

If you move here to Tennessee you would still be warm. It's been in the 80's this past week :)

If that won't get you to move here, nothing will!

Come on over to the woodstove heated house if you ever get too cold. I don't get to see you enough anyway.

Hmmm....well, we don't have a furnace out, but I do hate to have to start paying those gas bills again. I am trying to leave it down low, and dress warmer...but it's hard!

Forget Tennessee, move to Minnesota and you get a whole new set of ways to know your furnace is out! Embrace the suffering for the sake of your art.

Well come on everyone! Can't we just decide on one place and move there? Too many directions to be pulled...I guess we'll just stay here. For now. I guess our friends/family knows us best: we are stir crazy at times.
