- we are on the edge of spring and can turn it off without fear of a frozen pipe so no emergency
- it was at the end of its lifespan
- I have wanted to replace it for years anyway because it has a pilot light filament that needs a stupid little repair about once per winter
- we can afford to replace it
But it is just One More Thing on the Queue and sometimes I think I am going to collapse under the weight of the Queue...and that's something people usually say after they have Kids and I don't even have Kids yet.
I wonder how the people I know who spend all their time on the Road deal with busted furnaces?
Do they all rent and therefore pester landlords, or move?
Do they have family members to drop by and take care of it?
Do their furnaces just---not---break? (Impossible. Everybody's furnace breaks sometime.)
Well, this isn't getting it fixed, or anything else done, so bye.
