It figures. We’re going through a rough patch financially and it seems like everything in our house is breaking down or not working quite right. Ironic isn’t it?
The latest thing in our growing list of household items and appliances that are breaking is the thermostat for our furnace! It doesn’t seem to be calculating the room temperature accurately. I spent some time on the internet trying to find out where we could buy a new one or figure out how to fix ours and I keep getting sent to a page for a Honeywell Barcode Scanner when I type in the thermostat model number. I guess our thermostat model is not being made anymore.
Last week the bottom of our shower stall cracked! LOL … Really .. I have to laugh or I’ll start crying. We just have no money to fix these things!
We’ve been trying to be very careful with our spending over the last few months (generally we are careful about our spending anyway, but we’ve tried to find other ways to cut expenses recently) and if we can keep it up for a few more months we should be able to fix or replace most of the things that have broken over the last few months. I just hope that nothng else breaks in the meantime!
The list of broken things includes our toaster oven, the washing machine, the shower stall and now our furnace thermostat. I’m sure there’s a few other things that have broken recently but those are the biggies. Of course we need to fix that thermostat now, since it’s getting quite cool here in Toronto!
Anyone else having things break down in their home that they can’t afford to fix or replace right now?
