The votes are in, and it’s been decided that vacation was worth all the stuff that happened when we came home. It was relaxing and fun, and we had a blast.
So, upon arrival at home, we found…
A leaking hot water heater.
A cold house, needing a new line run for power to the furnace.
A dog who destroyed a very expensive something belonging to our friend. (we’re SO sorry, dear!!)
Now, the dust has settled. The hot water heater is replaced, blessing us with lovely hot showers, and the damage in the basement wasn’t as bad as we first thought, or anywhere near as bad as it might have been; the electrical work was done yesterday, so as soon as we sweep out the ducts, the furnace shall ride again; and as for Ezri, we’ll have to see if Hannah ever wants to come back. I’ll bribe her with red cake – that should do it. 😀 (or maybe not…)
Perspective. It’s all a matter of perspective. 😀
