Last week, my husband and I went on a great vacation. We spent four days on the beach, and it was so beautiful. The day we had to come home, I really wasn’t ready. I wanted to stay and play some more, but work and home were calling me. I got home, and I wished I had stayed at the beach. Before we even got into the house, we had a mess to clean up. A bear had found our trash cans, and he had mangled the cans and strewn what he didn’t eat, all over the yard. Thinking that was the worst of it, we headed on into the house. We were totally wrong about the worst of returning home. While we were gone, we had a pipe burst. There was water all over, and the well had run dry. Because of no water, there was no heat because we have a boiler. Without the boiler, the water had frozen, and we had a mess. We had to call the HVAC company and have them come out and fix the broken boiler. We needed to have a plumber come in and fix the broken pipe, and I had a mess to clean up. Our four day vacation, had us in a hotel for three more days, while we got some heat in the house, and the mess cleaned up. The weather had dropped well below freezing while we were gone. When we got to the hotel, the HVAC wasn’t working properly, and all we could do was laugh.
