|It was snowing!|
I went out to clear the snow from the Nissan truck as Jeanette was preparing to leave to attend another nurses Christmas breakfast at Northview Golf & Country Club. This is the third Christmas function she will be attending this season. Party animals, these nurses are!

This is quite the change in tradition. We all like it! It's OK to change things up once in a while. Jeanette is always full of surprises! The other decision we made as a family was that gifts would be 'stocking stuffers' only. Well, do those gifts under the Palm Christmas tree look like stocking stuffers? Perhaps the other surprise Jeanette has up her sleeve is to string up some really large stockings. We'll see!

|Easton seemed to like it too! His mom and dad decorated a traditional tree at their home. Best of both worlds for him!|

We don't seem to replace bearings nowadays! The only fix was to remove the entire inducer and replace it with a brand new one. With our end of December departure for the southwest US, we were left with no other option. We had to replace the inducer. The furnace has a ten year guarantee but (will you be surprised to learn this?) the inducer is only warranted for one year. Now I know why! Inducers do not have a long shelf life. The installer told me that inducers typically last ten years. We paid the price and feel we can leave without worrying about furnace issues while we are away. Our house sitters do not have to deal with the problem either.

As I sign off, and publish this blog, the snowfall has ended. The white stuff is already melting.
Thanks for dropping by.
