Schooling

My husband had to go back to school to update his credentials for working inside a nuclear power plant. Each year they put more schooling so he can take on more responsibilities in the plant. He spent five days with 12 different tests and hours and hours of reading. If you flunk a test you can take it one more time. If you flunk it a second time you won't be working at the facilities. Luckily my husband passed with flying colors.

Furnace replacement

Central New York's winters can be very harsh when it comes to a lot of things. Just getting up in the morning  and looking at the driveway that has two foot of new snow is enough to want you to go back to bed but of course you have to go to work. When a storm is coming in my husband gets up two hours early  so he can get out and plow the driveway before I have to leave for work. Friends of hours that live next door moved to Calgary. We visited them last winter. Halfway through our first night there it got very very cold.
 
My husband woke up his friend, they went downstairs and the furnace wasn't working. My husband checked it out and to find it had a cracked heat exchanger that could have killed us all from the fumes. Luckily, the sensors on the furnace shut itself down. The next day he called calgary furnace replacement. They were there the same day after calling early in the morning. That following Saturday I woke up to this hissing sound. Apparently, the temperatures were so cold in their crawl space that one of the feed pipes had cracked. After shutting the water off we had to call a calgary plumber to fix the system. It didn't take long and everything was all right once again.

Early spring

After last week's weather we were really hoping spring was here. We could see some of the grass and on the edge of the house there were two inch tops  of the tulip plants coming through the soil. And then everything turned around. Temperature plummeted and the snow started piling up again. We should be used to it but each year we hope for an early spring.

Discount sunglasses

I started searching the other day online for a comfortable pair of safety glasses. It seems like every pair they gave me at work was so cheap they're just aren't comfortable. As I was searching I rant into
discount sunglasses. I wasn't shopping for them at that time but besides buying three pairs of safety glasses I bought two pair of sunglasses for when I'm working in the garden over the summer.

Way back on our anniversary my mother in law gave us a gift card for Red Lobster restaurant. My husband said he had been saving it for special occasion. Well, it was his birthday this weekend and we finally got to use the cards to have a nice dinner just the immediate family. The food was great and the drinks were awesome.

Seasoned wood

We got a so called good deals of some burning wood the other day. Yes the wood had been seasoned or dried for over one year the problem was the wood was split and outdoors for two days before my husband could get to it. In those two days it rained and rained now its tough to get it dried out to burn in our wood stove.

Boat paint job

Last year we skipped putting the boat on the water. That was a big mistake. We didn't put it in because it needed a complete paint scraping on the bottom and some semi-minor motor adjustments. But this year we won't make that mistake. Hopefully by May first the weather will be good enough to launch the boat with its new bottom paint job.
