We just dropped Charlotte off with Grandma and Grandpa so that we can go to Jane's funeral tomorrow.  While we were there, I begged a hot shower.  One forgets how GOOD an honest to goodness hot shower feels.  We're not entirely sure what's going on with the boiler/plumbing, but we don't have running hot water.  We have running tepid water.  I haven't had a hot shower for two months, and lately I've taken to heating a big pot of water on the stove for Charlotte's bath and to wash my hair.

Dad is going to come up and look at it while he's here installing the new desktop computer (that's a whole separate story), and hopefully it'll be something he and Bob can fix.  My fear is that the first step will need to be turn off the boiler and wait until the system cools down - which would means it would have to wait until late spring.  Three more months of tepid showers doesn't sound good.  Let's hope dad thinks it's fixable.
