The Good with the Bad

Today has been one of those days. 
It seems that it started off wonky and just kept going sideways.
But I did find some good.

The Good:
The sunset was gorgeous!

The Bad:

Since winter is approaching fast, we decided to go ahead and get our furnace checked out.
The HVAC guy came today and did some vacuuming and gave us a little background that the previous HVAC guy (from another company) did not give us.

1. Our furnace was made in the 1960s
2. Parts are not available.
3. Everything looked good with it.
4. The furnace is costing us tons of money because of the way it is made.

The very bad:
The carbon monoxide test sucked! Our furnace put out 10 parts per million of carbon monoxide.
That is enough to make a sensitive person sick.
We need a new furnace.
It is going to cost between $2000-$2500 for the furnace+ labor
We don't have any kind of money like that.
The weather is supposed to turn COLD for the next few days!
So we are buying a couple of heaters for the house.

I'm not sure how we are going to get a new furnace. I just know that we need lots of hopes and prayers right now. We need to have a new furnace installed in our home before the temperatures drop to freezing. 

The good and the bad.

Be Blessed


  1. Oh dear. How about making payments to the furnace company? Hope something works out. Hugs, Teresa

  2. Hopefully the company will have a sensible payment plan as Teresa suggested.

    Hope everything works out for you - being cold is not a nice thing at all :(


  3. Woah! How’s everything now? I hope you and your family are okay. Be sure to wear socks and sweater in doors to keep you warm, and drink lots of warm fluids to keep you hydrated.
