When the little black box (some type of control thingy) for our main hot water heater gave out on Thursday afternoon, I was secretly thankful I'd gotten my shower that morning. Honey is such a great handy guy, so I knew he would have it fixed soon, right? There is one thing I inherited from my mother is keeping all our warranty, paperwork, etc, in a file. Knowing this, Honey asked me to get the file. Simple right? No! There is NO evidence of this water heater we purchased in '09. I literally tore the file cabinet apart, as well as any place else, it could possibly be. I'm sure it will turn up next week.
You can only go so long without a shower before you start thinking how to garner an invitations from friends to use their shower. Being a "big girl" and the mom, I did what I could.... You know a cold shower isn't really that bad when it's 100º outside. All you have to do is pretend you're in the middle of a cold mountain waterfall...
Meanwhile, if you pass by our house on Saturday and we're all waiting in the driveway, we're waiting on a new Black Box. Just honk and wave and pass on by. Some of us may be going heavy on the deodorant and cologne.
Update: Honey installed the new little black box on Saturday and we once again have hot water. Time to wash White Clothes!
