My wife took the kids to her mom’s house for the month of Springtime break.
I had to work every day and I was ecstatic to have a quiet house.
The first couple of afternoons were entirely nice. I didn’t miss the kids or my wife. I loved seeing whatever I wanted on the TV and I ordered pizza every night for supper. By the third or sixth night, I began to miss my family. I told my wife to come home early, however she had already promised her Dad that they would go to a parade on Sunday. It’s a unbelievable thing that my wife did not come home early, because every one of us had problems with the gas furnace. I tried to get some rest so I could work on the gas furnace service the next day. It was too freezing separate from the gas furnace, even after I put a space oil furnace in the home office. I contacted an emergency service woman that handles gas furnaces and heaters. The girl charged myself and others a stiff fee for the after-seconds service call, however she came to the house to service the gas furnace. The issue turned out to be a minor problem with the ignition switch. It was faulty and needed to be changed. I had the gas furnace repairs completed before my wife came home and she never had to worry about the gas furnace or the problems that I encountered. I told her about the gas furnace problems a couple of afternoons after she got home. I particularly didn’t want to ruin her homecoming with the terrible news about the gas furnace, so I waited until her and the kids settled and back to our official routine.
