In Hot Water

We are so happy to be in hot water again!  Our water heater sprung a leak on Wednesday, and we have been without hot water (in the kitchen) since then.  Thankfully, the water heater that broke was only for the kitchen, so we didn't have to take cold showers :-)

On the down side, the water heater was in a closet in the boys' room and so their carpeting got very wet, as did the wall.  Now it looks like we will replacing the carpeting in that room, as well as some of the sheetrock.  All of that isn't such a big deal, I just wish their beds were not so...substantial (as in, heavy as an elephant).  Moving them out of the room is going to be a back breaking task :-(

For the past several days, we've had these lovely appliances in the boys' room.  Have you ever seen an industrial dehumidifier?  Check out this baby...

And then we had the lovely fans.  All in all, we only popped the circuit breaker about five times.

And then, to the rescue, Raelea and Chris installed the new water heater!  Thanks, guys!!
